Isotonic beverage has been developed but not with a natural material. Banana is a fruit that contains carbohydrates and electrolyte. This research aims to create formulation of isotonic drink based on banana flour. True experimental research conducted to determine the content of carbohydrates, sodium, chloride, and potassium on selected raw materials. Results of nutrient analysis is used formulate the drink that will be tested its osmolarity. These drinks has succeeded develop with the basic materials of 105 days old of banana. Each 100 ml waters contain of 24% banana flour, salt and sugar in small amounts. These drinks contain 112.12 cal, 4:03 g sugar, 24 g carbohydrates, or 0.2% Sodium 0:19, 0:44% Chloride, 0138 or 0.14% NaCl, 0065 g of potassium and 269 mOsm. The drink is making simply by dissolving the material into cold water. This product is clinically proved capable of maintaining hydration status of human body fluids.
Keywords: Banana Flour, Isotonic Drink.
