Banana powder is prepared by processing nutrient-rich bananas which are dipped into the warm water and are further peeled, sliced, blanched, mashed, diluted and filtered. The filtered banana juice is then spray dried to obtain the banana powder. The process increases its shelf life, thereby, providing the ease of storage and transportation.
