  ◆Contributions to human health via effective use of global resources.

Banana is one of the most abundant crops with annual global production of about 100 million tons. However,
20 to 30% of the green bananas production are destroyed each year, a waste of precious resource.

We believe soultions to global hunger lie in imaginative solutions to these waste issues. We have developped an efficient means of extracting banana starch from green bananas, and it is now possible to produce economical pure banana starch for the first time.

In addition to its nutrient properties, as a starch, banana starch is high in resistant starch, a type of dietary fiber with a variety of health functions.

Our motto is "The limited resources of the Earth are to be valued. Banana starch is a gift from nature."

We continue to devote ourselves to research and development for the many uses of banana starch worldwide.

  ◆Research to real world application.

VANTEK CORPORATION was established in 2006 with the object of extracting banana starch from green bananas, researching its properties and functions, and commercially producing the green banana resistant starch.

Out long-term challenge, development of efficient extraction method, was accomplished in 2012, and the world first banana starch plant was completed in 2014 in Taiwan first in the world.
