Production & Sourcing
The production process of freeze-dried banana powder involves several steps to transform fresh bananas into a powdered form while preserving their flavor, color, and nutritional value!
Harvesting: Ripe bananas are harvested from farms when they have reached the desired level of ripeness. This ensures that the bananas have developed their full flavor and sweetness.
Sorting and Washing: The harvested bananas are carefully sorted to remove any damaged or overripe fruits. They are then washed thoroughly to remove any dirt or contaminants.
Peeling and Slicing: The bananas are peeled to remove the skin, and the flesh is sliced into thin, uniform pieces. This step ensures consistent drying and allows for even moisture removal.
Pre-Treatment: The banana slices may undergo pre-treatment processes such as blanching or dipping in a solution to preserve their color and prevent browning.
Freezing: The pre-treated banana slices are quickly frozen using a freezing method such as blast freezing or liquid nitrogen freezing. This rapid freezing helps retain the structure and nutrients of the bananas.
Freeze Drying: The frozen banana slices are placed in a freeze-drying machine. This process involves converting the frozen water content directly from ice to vapor without passing through the liquid phase. The nutrients are locked in and the moisture is locked out!
Grinding: After the freeze-drying process is complete, the dried banana slices are carefully ground into a fine powder, and you have your Freeze-Dried Banana Powder!
