Different types of products development through banana peels

Shnehendu Das
The most significant member of the genus Musa and family Musaceae is the banana. They are indigenous to Australia and tropical Indo-Malaysia. It is a herbaceous plant that may thrive in a variety of settings. Bananas are grown in 107 nations. The skin of a banana makes up 40% of its fresh weight. Fruit peels, which are a waste product, made up 18.33% of the fruit. Phenolic compounds are present in banana peel. A good quantity of dietary fibre, proteins, essential amino acids, potassium, polyphenols, carotenoids, and polyunsaturated fatty acids may be found in bananas. The antioxidative properties of polyphenols, which cause food items to be rancid, prevented lipid oxidation in the food products. Banana peel and pulp have been utilised to create items including bread, cakes, noodles, gluten-free goods, and more. Banana peel extracts might be useful in the fight against free radical-mediated disease. Polyphenols' antioxidant properties also aid in avoiding off flavours, which lower food shelf life and nutritional value.
