Banana puree is one of the many types of commercial-grade products supplied by iTi Tropicals.
Grown in tropical regions throughout the world and native to India, Brazil, China, Ecuador, and the Philippines, fresh bananas are one of the most widely produced fruits in the world. Available year-round, they are the number one fresh fruit consumed in the United States. Bananas are 99% fat free and are a source of essential minerals such as potassium and manganese, vitamins such as vitamin C as well as dietary fiber. They are also exceptionally rich in fructo-oligosaccharides, more commonly known to be probiotics.
Bananas may be used in fruit salads, smoothies, pancakes, quick breads, and pies, sauces, fruit smoothies and juice applications. Owing to its widely acceptable taste and flavor product development opportunities are endless while formulating. Imagine starting your day with an oatmeal and pancakes with banana, having fried banana wontons with lunch, or banana cupcakes as a decadent dessert in the evening. They can also be included in sauces and vinaigrettes. Popular combinations include açai-banana, and passionfruit-banana.
