Banana flakes

Product Description

These flakes are roller drum dried from banana puree, with a maize starch carrier.  They are typically 3mm long, and light yellow to beige.  They have a typical banana flavour.  Variation in appearance, fruit content and taste may occur, due to the natural origin of the ingredients.

Applications

Banana flakes are used in a variety of food preparations, including baked goods, muffins, dry cake mixes, cereal bars, and traybakes.  The flakes can be rehydrated by stirring with liquid, to produce a pulpy to liquid product, depending on the amount of added liquid.
