Modern commercial broilers, typically known as Cornish crosses or Cornish-Rocks are specially bred for large scale, efficient meat production and grow much faster than egg or traditional dual purpose breeds. They are noted for having very fast growth rates, a high feed conversion ratio, and low levels of activity. Broilers often reach a harvest weight of 4-5 pounds dressed in only eight weeks.
Yuhiko 2008.The antioxidant compounds from commercial bananas, Musa Cavendish is gallocatechin. The gallocatechin was isolated (using HPLC) from the banana peel extract, which showed strong antioxidant activity. Gallocatechin was more abundant in peel (158 mg/100 g dry wt.) than in pulp (29.6 mg/100 g dry wt.). The antioxidant activity of the banana peel extract, against lipid autoxidation, was stronger than that of the banana pulp extract.

Banana flour prepared from ripe banana containing a quantity of sugar is suitable for incorporation into food products requiring solubility, sweetness and high energy content. (Zhang et al., 2005)

Commercial banana flour production is not yet common in Asia however this industry is gaining popularity in major banana producing countries in Africa (Emaga et al., 2008).
