Banana Products

Banana Processing Fresh bananas are the most popular fresh fruit in the U.S.A. Native to the tropical region of Southeast Asia; bananas are likely to have been first domesticated in Papua New Guinea. Today, they are cultivated throughout the tropics.

Bananas are known to be over 99% fat free and are a good source of potassium, vitamin C, fiber and manganese. Bananas are an exceptionally rich source of fructo-oligosaccharide, a compound called a prebiotic because it nourishes probiotic (friendly) bacteria in the colon.

Bananas have a wide range of food applications. They include: muffins, cakes, fruit beverages, yogurt, and ice cream and baby food.
