Banana Puree/ Pulp :
General Description :
The banana is an edible fruit – botanically a berry– produced by several kinds of large herbaceous flowering plants , Bananas grow in a wide variety of soils, as long as the soil is at least 60 cm deep, has good drainage and is not compacted. Very interesting phenomena in this fruit when a banana plant is mature, the corm stops producing new leaves and begins to form a flower spike or inflorescence. The Cavendish banana puree (banana pulp) obtained from Indian bananas is considered best owing to its superior size, rich flavour and thickness. Selected bananas are hand peeled, pumped through series of filters and finally mashed to get a banana puree. It is then homogenized, de-aerated and sterilized according to international standards. The fresh aseptic banana puree is free from any chemicals or preservatives.

We offer two kinds of banana pulps and purees namely Natural Banana Puree and Acidified Banana Puree. The major difference between these two types is the acidity level and pH level. In Natural Banana puree, the pH level is between 4.5 and 5.0 and the acidity % as citric acid is 0.35-0.45%. However, in the Acidified Banana Puree, the pH level is between 4 and 4.5 and the acidity % as citric acid is 0.60-1.0%. The organoleptic properties of both the banana puree are the same. The color of the puree is creamy white. Bananas can be eaten fresh as table banana or they can be used for namely in bakery for fruit bread, muffins, cakes etc; in beverages, in baby foods and in ice-creams and milk shakes.
