At Instantia, we want to be part of your life and provide a healthy and nutritious solution for your food and also for your customers. We want to be a positive change in society and the environment. That’s why we offer organic products to make people consume healthy products and achieve their goals, while maintaining a good quality of life.
We have 15 years of experience in the food industry. During these years, we have perfected each of our processes for each of the fruits we offer, such as coconut, mango, pineapple, apple and organic dried banana. In addition, we offer apple fiber, apple powder and strawberry powder.
When you go to the store and want some dehydrated products it is important that you check that they do not have added sugar, coloring or some flavoring. The dried fruit with these characteristics is not a very healthy product as it has more calories than the natural ones. In addition, in the packaging you can verify if they are organic products because being organic means you have to comply with certain specifications.
An organic product has no pesticides, herbicides, or any chemical that can modify its color, size, duration of growth, among others. Due to the high demand for world food, it can be difficult to find organic food but not impossible.
There is a myth that organic production causes less production because no chemical elements are used. However, in Mexico, great yields have been obtained in the organic production, because producers have a correct training based in ancestral knowledge of cultivation that allows them to have excellent products. In Mexico, organic products such as coffee and cocoa have higher yields than traditional crops.
For this reason, Instantia works with Mexican producers, who know these methods perfectly and can grow organic fruits. We have direct contact with the agriculturists to verify that the quality standards are met, as well as the organic certifications (they are studies that are done to the products to verify their quality and that they do not have chemicals).
Afterward, we take the products to the drying process, where we continue to take care of the organic chain. Without using additives, sweeteners or any other chemical that alter the color or flavor of our products. We take our fruits to ovens where we keep them at low temperatures so that the fruits retain all the nutrients, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber. When the fruit dries, the only thing that they lose is the water, which in some fruits like watermelon represents 96% of its volume, but all the nutrients continue in the remnant. Later, we pack our products. One of the great advantages that we offer to our clients is that final products and packaging can be designed according to client specifications, giving added value to our customers.
One of the products we offer is organic dried banana. This is one of the products most loved by our customers because of all the properties it has, making it one of the most nutritious fruits in the world.
Bananas contain fiber that can lower cholesterol levels, as well as relieve stomach problems such as ulcers, diarrhea or constipation. It is a food with high energy content which makes it ideal for athletes as it can provide them with the nutrients needed to continue their exercise.
If you are looking for healthy food for your children, without spending hours in the kitchen, an excellent solution is to include dried fruits in your children’s lunch. For example, organic dried banana that will give your children high contents of vitamin B6, vitamin C, fiber, potassium and folic acid, carotene and riboflavin.

Vitamin B6 is needed to produce antibodies that help us fight various diseases (strengthen the immune system); helps maintain neurological function, produces hemoglobin that is responsible for carrying oxygen throughout the body.

So if you eat a lot of protein you will need to consume more amounts of vitamin B6; and maintains glucose in normal ranges. Some foods that contain vitamin B6 (besides banana) are avocado, walnuts, poultry and fortified cereals. Lack of this vitamin can cause confusion, irritability, depression, mouth ulcers.
Vitamin C strengthens the immune system; this vitamin is reduced when they are dried fruit. In bananas this vitamin is reduced by 12%. However, it remains a high content compared to other snacks, which are usually consumed. It also helps to absorb iron.

Potassium helps prevent cramps, helps maintain blood pressure, stabilizes the structure of our cells, stimulates the intestines, is essential for the growth of our body because it part of the bones, it participates in the production of proteins and metabolism of carbohydrates. Its consumption is vital for our survival because it intervenes in vital functions of our organism, as well as in the nervous system. Some of the symptoms of lack of potassium are paralysis, muscle weakness, lack of energy in the stomach, irregularity in the pulse, among others.
Folic acid or vitamin B9 is very useful for our organism because it participates in the production of new cells reason why it is indispensable for pregnant women because it prevents defects of gestation; it also helps to assimilate iron, vitamin B12 and amino acids. Its deficiency can lead to anemia, help prevent neurological problems as well as prevent some types of cancer, protect the heart and prevent Alzheimer’s disease and dementia because it reduces homocysteine levels in the blood.

Banana is sometimes used for problems with eating disorders because with small portions the person can absorb essential nutrients for the proper functioning of his body.
As we have already mentioned in other articles. Nutrients, vitamins, fructose and calories are concentrated in dehydrated fruits so people should moderate its consumption to avoid gaining weight. For example: a fresh banana contains 75% water. This means that the banana will have a reduction of water more or less of 70%. When water is removed, dehydrated bananas become concentrated of all the nutrients, so if we exceed the recommended portion we can gain weight.It is necessary to emphasize that the quantities of vitamins necessary will depend on the age, sex and medical history of a person. In order to know what your daily intake should be, we recommend that you attend with a doctor to guide you.
