How is banana concentrate made?
Once the bananas are harvested, they are pressed and juiced – before that juice is heated to evaporate off the liquid. This leaves a thick, condensed solution six times the strength of an NFC banana juice.
Easier to transport in large quantity, the concentrated banana juice then has the water re-added at the manufacturer’s end to restore its natural strength.
