BANANA FLOUR

Banana flour is made from the starchy Green Bananas. It is sometimes used as a food for
invalids because it is starchy, filling and nutritious. It can be combined with regular flour
when a starchy product is desired. The flour is very fine and is very useful for its moisture
absorbing and holding properties. It is a good gluten-free product and can be used to
make pancakes, bread, scones and cakes moist, lighter with a more airy texture.

BANANA POWDER

A new product with a potential commercial value is the banana powder
made from fresh and ripe banana. Banana powder can be used as a mixture
material for various cakes/breads (wet and dry cakes), and for infant feeding.
Banana powder contains low gluten, so it could not be used as the main cake
material. Therefore, to produce high quality cake, banana powder must be
mixed with wheat flour
Processing Method

Remove banana fruits from the bunch.
Steam for about 10 minutes to decrease sticky sap, improve the powder color and facilitate the peeling
process.
Peel and then slice into small pieces.
Soak in 5% citric acid for about 30 minutes, then drain.
Dry at a low temperature, until 10% moisture content is achieved.
Mill and sift.
Package and store in a closed, dry place.
Benefits
Banana powder can be used as a mixture material for various cakes/breads (wet and dry cakes), and
for infant feeding. Banana powder contains low gluten, so it could not be used as the main cake
material. Therefore, to produce high quality cake, banana powder must be mixed with wheat flour.
EAT BANANA CHIPS FOR YOUR GOOD HEALTH

Dehydrated banana chips are produced in a way where
the moisture is removed in a special drying process. The end
product is reduced in weight by over 90%, keeping the
volume the same. What's remarkable is that this
concentrates the fresh product taste, vibrant texture, and
natural color of fresh product in it's dehydrated state. When
you go to rehydrated the dehydrated bananas, they will
retain most of their texture and shape of the fresh product.

Dehydrated banana chips are delicious, nutritious treats. They can make a
convenient snack for the whole family just by themselves. They are easy to store and
have a long shelf life.

Fiber

BANANA PAPER

Production costs for banana paper are estimated to be less than one-fifth those of traditional pulp paper,
and the capital investment costs just 3% of those required for pulp paper production.

Pulp Paper compared to Banana Ply Paper
Banana ply paper is created using a variation on the techniques used by ancient Egyptians to make papyrus. Rather than
pulping the banana fibre, the trunk is literally peeled down to individual layers that are up to eight metres long and as thin as
cigarette paper. These layers are then pressed together at right angles to form the extremely strong material.

The secret to holding the layers together is a natural chemical compound called lignin. Lignin is found in the cell walls of all
plants where it conducts water and provides strength. It is removed at great expense during traditional paper manufacturing,
but it is vital for banana ply paper's unique durability.
Banana ply paper can be produced in various sizes and thicknesses ranging from fine tissue-like material for wrapping
jewelry to thick cardboard crates. It can also be bleached to create high quality writing paper.
The production line used to produce banana ply paper is about the size of a semi-trailer, which is compact enough that it can
be easily installed onsite at banana plantations. It is designed to be installed alongside the packing shed at a banana farm,
meaning that the trunks can be gathered using the same infrastructure required to gather the fruit. This reduces the use of
transport, providing environmental and economical benefits.

Ethanol from Bananas

There two different methods to produce Ethanol/Butanol from Bananas.
The “Green” Bananas would be peeled, cut into thin strips, dried then ground; that
would be Starch. Then you would add the alfa-amalase etc and do the same as
standard grain ethanol production.
Let the Bananas ripen into a converted sugar, then peel them, then no enzymes
would be needed. After that follow through with the same continuous process after
using a vibrating screen or decanter to filter the solids add the yeast and let ferment.
Bananas when ripe contain 22% sugar.
The sugar content is a direct indication of the amount of ethanol in the sugar 22%
sugar indicate 11% alcohol.

Palm oil
The world demand for palm oil is expected to increase from its
present 22.5 million tons a year to 40 million tons in 2020.

Individual oil palm fruit
are drupes with an oily, As in many palms, fruits are drupes. The mesocarp
fibrous mesocarp. and endocarp vary in thickness, with dura types
having thick endocarps and less mesocarp, and tenera
types the opposite. The exocarp color is green
changing to orange at maturity in virescens types, and
orange with brown or black cheek colors in the
nigrescens types. Fruit range in size from <1" to 2",
and are obovoid in shape. The mesocarp, from which
palm oil is derived, is fibrous and oily, and the seed is
opaque white, encased in a brown endocarp; palm
kernel oil is derived from seeds. The female
infructescence contains 200-300 fruit, and fruit set is
50-70%. Fruit ripen about 5-6 months after
pollination.
Banana Waste Creates New
Products
 VAFAF creates many by-products that result
from the harvesting and processing of bananas.
These by-products are bananas that are rejected
for export, banana peels, banana stems, and
liquid wastes. Currently these wastes are
dumped in landfills, rivers, oceans and
unregulated dumping grounds. When they reach
these destinations, they form huge masses of
putrefying wastes that attract insects and
scavengers, spread disease, contaminate
groundwater, and have foul odors that can be
smelled for miles around
Vitamins and minerals are
abundant in the banana,
Banana offering 123 I.U. of vitamin A
for the large size. A full range of
B vitamins are present with .07
mg of Thiamine, .15 mg of
Riboflavin, .82 mg Niacin, .88
mg vitamin B6, and 29 mcg of
Folic Acid. There are even 13.8
mg of vitamin C. On the mineral
scale Calcium counts in at 9.2
mg, Magnesium 44.1 mg, with
trace amounts of iron and zinc.

I have developed a fat replacement from ripe banana that
can replace margarine and butter, it is fat free with the
same characteristics as butter.
I have also developed new dietary banana fibers utilizing
the complete Banana plant. The fibers from the Green
bananas and the Ripe bananas maintain all of it’s
nutritional value. The waste banana can be used for the
production of Ethanol, Bio-fuels, paper
