Home » Technology » New Technologies » Technologies in Health » Banana Juice Extraction Process


Banana is the most abundant fruit crop grown in India. Extraction of juice is an effective method of reducing post-harvest loss of the fruit. A novel lab-scale process has been developed at BARC for extraction of juice from banana and production of banana powder as a by-product. Clear juice with a yield of upto 55% (w/w) is obtained without addition of any enzymes and can be stored upto 3 months inside cold storage at temperatures below 40C without adding any preservatives. The residual pulp is converted into fine banana powder.
