Presently, bananas are one of the world’s most consumed fruits, with production in around 130 countries. The processing of bananas into products such as powder, flour and puree enables manufacturers to extend the shelf-life of the fruit and reduce post-harvesting losses. Amongst these, banana powder presents the potential for commercialization owing to its low starch and high sugar content. It is highly beneficial as a substitute for fresh bananas in the preparation of banana snacks, crackers, or crisps. Moreover, as bananas are useful for the treatment of indigestion, anemia, diarrhea, stomach ulcers and malnutrition in children, banana powder is widely used in the treatment of these ailments.
