Fresh Banana vs Dried Banana

BananaComparison

Do you know how much water is in fresh fruit?

It depends on the type of fruit. Watermelon (as the name implies) is aproximately 92% water, therefore it is not a good fruit to dry as there will be nothing left after the drying process. Bananas have about 80% to 84% water in them. They are better suited to dying.

Now let’s talk about Cherry Me Dried Banana for example. I took a photo of the bananas before drying and after they have been dried (ignore the bowl, I did reset the scale to 0 before putting bananas on it).

You can see from over 1kg of fresh Banana, once dried they went down to just below 240g. The product lost over 3/4 of its weight. Phenomenonal, isn’t it? Don’t be alarmed! With our careful drying process the product lost a lot of water but maintained its condition, taste and most nutrients. We only choose the freshest and good condition fruit to dry for the best quality.

Remember bananas are a rich source in potassium and fiber. Drying them creates a more concentrated source of the nutrients found in the fruit.
