Banana flour

Banana flour is made from the starchy plantain. It is sometimes used for a food for invalids as it is starchy, filling and nutritious. It can be combined with regular flour when a starchy product is desired.

Commercially prepared banana flour is produced by freeze drying puréed banana. The flour is very fine and is very useful for its moisture absorbing and holding properties. It is a good gluten-free product and can be used to make pancakes, bread, scones and cakes moist, lighter with a more airy texture. When combining it with flour don't replace more than 1/4 of the total amount of flour with banana flour or the product will become a sticky paste.
