There is only one way to eat mangoes. Suck it-a, lick it-a, Repeat-a


Thanks to its peculiar flavor, mango is considered the king of tropical fruits and one of the most famous, sweet, unique, refreshing, easy to eat and expected fruit throughout the year. It is important to remember all the benefits it has and how to identify them, because its properties vary depending on the type of ripeness in which the fruit is found. However, they all stand out for their high water content and high nutrient richness. The specialists in knowing at what moment the mango is at its best are the people who work in agriculture area but, within this small article we mention some of the indispensable benefits that you should know.


Mango provides vitamin B and folic acid. Still green mangoes, which are consumed primarily in salads, are rich in vitamin C and contain a moderate amount of provitamin A. This composition varies in ripe mangoes, which are rich in provitamin A and contain a moderate amount of vitamin C.

The consumption of vitamin A is useful to prevent infectious diseases of skin, mucous, bones, capillaries and eyes in addition to those of the immune system. Its high content of vitamin C contributes to the absorption of iron and the generation of red blood cells. It also helps in the formation of collagen, teeth and bones. These vitamins make this fruit a good antioxidant, composed of nutritional properties for all people of any age. On the other hand, it helps to reduce the risk of getting cardiovascular, degenerative and carcinogenic diseases.

Its high iron content is useful for treatments of anemia and other blood conditions and its low content of fat, sodium and calories allows its consumption in diets to lose weight and in cases of hypertension.


And last but not least, its high fiber content provides laxative properties, prevents constipation, reduces blood cholesterol rates and exerts a good glycemic control.

At the time of consuming mangoes it is important to take into account if they are slightly soft and give off a good aroma, since the best mango flavor is achieved when ripe. The skin of the ripe fruit adopts a range of colors that goes from green, yellow or orange to dark red. Its flesh is orange yellow, sweet, juicy and very tasty. It has a very different flavor and texture to the rest of table fruits and it is considered the tropical fruit par excellence as mentioned above.


Nevertheless, you should not be fooled, because the color of the skin is not an indicator of maturity in this fruit, actually, this task belongs to color of its pulp. An orange pulp indicates a ripe and perfect mango for consumption. The firmness of the pulp decreases as the fruit matures. So, be careful!

Mango's pulp can be used to make jams, jellies, milkshakes and juices; it is also an ingredient for many desserts and even for snacks with the help of ingredients such as salt, vinegar and some other seasoning to the liking of the person.
