How to store it?

Keep mango at room temperature until ripe and ready to eat.

Once ripe, you can place it in the refrigerator to prolong its freshness. It will keep for 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator.

What are its health benefits?

Mango is a nutritious fruit that can help keep the body healthy, especially the heart, eyes, immune and digestive systems.

Main nutrients of mango

Mango is rich in:

  • vitamin B9: provides 35.10% of the RDA, i.e. 70.20 ยตg per 100 g
  • vitamin C: provides 31.25% of the RDA, i.e. 25 mg per 100 g

Mango is a source of:

  • vitamin A (carotenoid family): provides 18% of the RDA, i.e. 144 ยตg per 100 g. Mango is the 5th fruit with the highest ฮฒ-carotene content (Ciqual 2020 table)
  • vitamin E: provides 17.08% of RDA, i.e. 2.05 mg per 100 g. Mango is the fruit with the highest vitamin E content, just behind blackcurrants (Ciqual 2020 table)

Good to know, mango contains two main types of phytonutrients with antioxidant effects:

  • carotenoids, contained in large quantities in the pulp, which give it its beautiful yellow to orange color
  • polyphenols, contained mainly in the skin and core

Mango contains several polyphenols with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory actions, protecting against cell degeneration.

To make the most of its polyphenols, and in particular mangiferin (often offered as a dietary supplement because of its many benefits on its own), we recommend that you scrape off the pulp in contact with the fruit's skin and stone. You can use a knife or your teeth to scrape the pulp.

Some mango varieties have a pleasant skin to eat - these are generally the ones with the lowest polyphenol content.
