Product Description: Mangoes are oblong and pear sized fruit. They have a green skin when they are unripe, turning orange/yellow and red on the side most exposed to the sun. The best part of the mango is its juicey, peach coloued flesh, with 1 large flat stone inside.

Mangoes are one of the most delicious and nutritious foods, with a fascinating history. Cultivation of mangoes is deeply embedded in Indian History. Mangoes are mentioned in early Arialkrit literature and Alexander the Great spotted his first mango in 326BC when he traveled with his army to India.

Mangoes are an ideal Summer food as they are high in many carotenoids, especially Beta-carotene. Beta-Carotene has a protective affect against the harmful rays of the sun. Research indicates that even in older people, sun tolerance is increased when Beta-Carotene intake is increased. (Professor Mathews-Roth, Harvard University 1969-75.)

Mangoes contain Vitamin A ( of which Beta-Carotene is a precursor and more usable), Vitamins C & E and Selenium.

Mangoes also contain B-complex (anti-stress) vitamins, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, selenium, Folic acid (folate), and zinc.

Mangoes are very low in Saturated Fat, Cholesterol and Sodium. Plus are a good source of dietary fiber. They also contain some protein and amino acids, about 2% of your daily recommended amount. 180kj per 100g
