How do I use NuBana™ Green Banana Powder?
NuBana Green Banana Powder can simply replace flour in gluten-free formulas to add the nutrition of a healthier carbohydrate; act as a clean label binding agent in place of chemicals; leverage the superior banana starch texture benefits; or add a prebiotic fiber enhancement.

What is NuBana Green Banana Powder (Flour)?
NuBana is a neutral tasting fruit powder that delivers valuable functional properties because it has a different starch structure than starch from corn, potato, tapioca or other plants. NuBana does not absorb water from the environment and will not clump in storage.
Freshly harvested green bananas are rich in starch. This starch, called “resistant starch”, naturally resists digestion and is an insoluble dietary fiber. NuBana Green Banana Powder is also rich in potassium and magnesium. All three of these nutrients are under-consumed and contribute important health benefits.
Terova strives to use the entire crop of peeled green bananas to produce NuBana Green Banana Powder – none of the bananas are wasted. In contrast, up to 20% of the bananas grown for the fresh market are composted or destroyed because they do not meet the size or shape specifications for fresh markets.
Terova is helping to reduce the banana waste, which is good for the planet as well as good for food manufacturers and consumers.
We can help you get the best benefits of this natural food.
How do I use NuBana Green Banana Powder?
NuBana Green Banana Powder does not contain gluten and works very well in gluten free applications. It can replace high glycemic flours like rice and potato flour, and may reduce the need for binders and other hydrocolloids, resulting in better nutrition and clean labels. It also contributes softness and flexibility in gluten-free applications.
NuBana can replace wheat flour and is ideal for applications needing viscosity, adhesion or water-binding. This includes beverages, pasta, puddings, coatings, cereal bars, fruit fillings, sauces and salad dressings, and instant foods.
NuBana is also a great dietary supplement because its resistant starch, potassium and magnesium deliver important health benefits.
