The simplest chips of the kind that are just cooked and salted, but manufacturers can add a wide variety of seasonings of herbs, spices, cheese or artificial additives. plantain and banana wafers must be manufactured in a scientific manner and under hygienic conditions. The production process mainly comprises of the following steps:-
Peeling of banana or plantain (Manually)
Inspection and oil extracting
Cooling at room temperature
Firm plantain and banana are washed, peeled manually and sliced. cassava, plantain and banana slicing is done by Jas cassava, plantain and banana wafer (chips) machines have been manufactured with the latest technology. There is a mini machine that does this manually. It has a stationary blade on a solid platform with little opening just under the tip of the cutting edge through which sliced cassava, plantain and banana are collected. The peeled cassava, plantain and banana is move back and forth on the blade with relative force. The blade is set to cut at predetermined thickness usually from 1 mm-6 mm. Due to auto pressure system very easy to use, without pulley belts and no fear for heat while frying, you can set thickness of wafer, chips , crisp as you need thick or thin. Just one unskilled labor has to keep feeding peeled banana by using both hands one after another end chips falls directly into frying vessel or brine water.

The cassava, plantain and banana chips are fried in vegetable oil by Jas batch type fryer and cooled down to the room temperature. These wafers are then packed in polyethylene bags of suitable gauge and size to prevent spoilage.
"Jas" Banana wafer machine is fabricated from non corrosive materials. The slicer is operated by an electric motor and power transmitted to the directly coupled with aluminum manual tuber feeder head. It is manually fed with one tuber at a time through the rotating feeding head. The whole tuber falls vertically as it is manually fed by the operator against the fixed tuber slicing die and become sliced. The thickness of the slices is predetermined by adjusting the gap of knife.
Suitable for cost effective and continuous production of banana, sweet potato, cassava, tapioca, yuca, yams, taro chips, crisp, stick or wafer. It can also do many other tuber floating type of snacks with high moisture in raw product.
