Secret Banana Juice Extraction Methods Uncovered

Toronto probably has the most diverse foods in the world. But, as we’ve discussed in earlier posts, fruit juice selection is limited. Wandering around fruit juice stores you might wonder why you never see banana juice. Perhaps banana juice is too costly to make, or perhaps demand by beer enthusiasts for banana juice-beer combinations just isn’t big enough.

Luckily for us, India’s Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) is directing its resources to uncover the secrets of banana juice extraction. Here’s what they have to say:

“Banana is the most abundant fruit crop grown in India. Banana production in India accounts for over 20% of total banana produced in the world. A comparatively short post-harvest shelf-life of banana coupled with a dearth of sufficient and good quality transportation as well as storage facilities leads to perishing of 35-40% of this highly nutritious fruit before it reaches the consumer. One effective method of reducing this huge loss would be to extract the juice out of the fruit before it perishes and preserve it. As of now, no commercially established process is available to achieve this. A novel lab-scale process has been developed at BARC for extraction of juice from banana and production of banana powder as a by-product.”

While we thought therecreationalvegan’s Quantitative Science Branch (QSB) would first develop this technology, we are happy that it will only be a matter of time before banana juice floods the Toronto market.

  15. Donald says:

    I don’t understand why there is so much secrecy about this. In Uganda and Tanzania, I was amazed at the process the use to extract the juice.

    They use a fiber, in this case some sort of hay or dry grass, and the mash the peeled bananas together with this fiber. What then happens is that the grassy fiber binds to the fiber in the banana and it forms a heavier sort of sticky mass.

    In this process, a very clean and clear fluid with a hint of green (banana juice) almost magically appears! It looks like gasoline.

    This is what is then fermented to make the traditional beer.

    I have to say it’s quite delicious but labour intensive, which explains why you don’t see banana juice, or someone selling a banana juicer, all over the place.

    I hope this helps.


  16. Zeen M Zeen says:

    I am from Uganda and I agree with Donald.The grass talked of can be lemon grass or similar types.Squeezing the stuff to get juice is cumbersome and a better technology is required if commercial extraction is to be feasible.Ordinary juicers wont do because of banana`s unique pulp.Researchers should get serious and develop a special juicer for banana, so that India and Uganda can supply the world with this delicacy of banana juice. You can never compare the sweetness and flavour of banana juice to anything else you have tried before. To this, I swear by my grandfather`s foot.

  17. Luis Merced says:

    Can someone tell me how to make homemade banana juice? Zeen M. Zeen, can this process you talk about with lemongrass be recreated on a small scale such as for personal use?

    catcth me on

  19. Zeen M. Zeen says:

    Hello Luis Merced
    Your guess was correct.Using the lemon grass described above is indeed small scale, meant to produce up to 200 litres of banana juice in a day. It is labor intensive and cumbersome. No machine is used…just bananas, water, lemon grass and human hands. You can see the limitations.

  20. john locastro says:

    just put it thru your juicer like I do everyday with melons and pinapple. just wait about a min. or so for the pulp to ooze out then flush it out with more melon juice. Delicious with cantalope,watermelon,honeydew,papaya ect. I always put a couple of bananas thru about half way through juicing. Bananas are cheap! you don’t get it all but you get enough to sweetin any juice. try it just be pacient when juicing the banana pulp.

  21. john locastro says:

    P.S. It helps alot if bananas are extra ripe turning black. they make the best juice.

  22. john locastro says:

    P.S.S. when they’re extra ripe and kind of mushy they are very sweet. also I use centrifugal force juicer, you know the ones with the spinning basket.

  29. T Mills says:

    As john locastro has said… Take a very ripe (turning black) banana and put it through your juicer. Make sure you put something else through after it to help get the pulp/juice out. I start my juices off with the bananas and love the taste that it adds.

    I use a Breville BJE510XL Juicer (Best Juicer I’ve ever used).

    You don’t get a lot of juice from a single banana, but it certainly flavours the juice. I make ~5l of juice at a time and 4 bananas does a wonderful job of flavouring that amount of juice.

  49. am a Tanzanian hailing from Bukoba- western part of lake Victoria. we share same culture with Rwanda and Uganda. we have been producing banana juice for selling as juice and for local beer and for spirit since time in memory. it has been big source of income for peasants. many peasants managed to sent their kids to school. people failed to commercialize the process because producing juice is labor intensive and hygiene. one has to step on peeled ripe bananas on bare feet. we use some variety of grass as extraction aid. by stepping on the mixture on a certain pattern results into clear juice. different types of bananas produce juice of different color and taste. but also level of maturity dictates juice color.
