Banana Powder Production Cost Analysis 2020

Banana powder is a powder composed of processed bananas. It is utilised as a component for the preparation of milkshakes and baby foods. It is also utilised in the production of numerous types of cakes and biscuits.

Banana powder is produced by using banana pulp that is first chopped mechanically. It is then processed further with the help of a hydraulic shear using a colloid mill, converting it into a paste. Sodium metabisulfite is used to brighten the yellow colour of the paste. The paste is then dried by using either spray or drum-drying, with the latter being more commonly adopted as none of the paste is lost while drying. 

Banana powder is a major source of carbohydrates and calories. While it usually has low protein content, the beneficial ingredients of the powder make it superior to other fruits. The powder has been found to be useful as a treatment option for dyspepsia or indigestion.

In 1984, scientists from India were successful in extracting a part of the antiulcer compounds, which is found in the banana powder that ended up creating a type of powder that was 300 times more active in preventing the occurence of ulcers in the stomach. This type of banana powder was later found to also boost cell growth, which led to more rapid healing of the area affected by the ulcers.
