Dried Slices of Bananas Like Potato Chips-The Banana Chips…yummy!
Friday, 15 February, 2019
Banana chips are dried slices of bananas like potato chips. Banana’s scientific name is Musa and it is herbaceous plant, soft and sweet fruit. The chips can be covered with sugar or honey and have a sweet taste or they can be fried in oil and spices and have a salty or spicy taste.
There are two different methods for making banana chips. One of these is to deep fry thin slices of banana in hot oil, in the same way as potato chips or crisps. The other is to dry slices of banana, either in the sun or using a solar or artificial dryer. The products made by the two methods are quite different. The deep fried chips tend to be a savory, high-calorie product that is eaten as a snack food. Because they are deep fried in oil they have a fairly short shelf life- up to 2 months maximum when stored in the correct conditions. The oil is prone to turning rancid and the crisps to becoming soft if they are not stored in air-tight containers.
The dried chips are a more ‘salubrious’ product. They too are eaten as a snack food and are often added to cereal mixes such as muesli. The chips can be dried without any additives or they can be coated with a syrup or honey dip prior to drying which gives a sweeter tasting, higher calorie and possibly more attractive looking product. Chips made by drying have a longer shelf life (up to 6 months) as long as they are dried to low moisture content and stored in a cool dry place. Bananas can also be dried whole or in long strips until they are leathery and chewy. They have a higher sugar content and are not crispy like the dried chips. They are sometimes referred to as banana figs.
Health consciousness of people increasing day by day globally, this will lead to increasing demand for banana-chips-like-product which will boost the market growth in upcoming years. That’s fantastic or not? That’s like ……… hurray! For new as well as old banana chips making companies.
