The king of fruits, mango fruit is one of the most popular, nutritionally rich fruits with unique flavor, fragrance, taste and health promoting qualities, making it numero-uno among new functional foods, often labeled as super fruits. In India, mango is consumed in its both raw and ripe forms. Though the ripe mango is eaten and enjoyed by people across the world, we Indians also relish the raw mango in many dishes. Am sure there would be none who would have not enjoyed raw mango slices smeared with salt and chili powder. Wow!!! So tempting… 

Many people think that mango is high calorie food and is not recommended for weight watchers and diabetic individuals. But that is not true. Mango is rich in pre-biotic dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals and poly-phenolic flavonoid antioxidant compounds which are essential to protect against breast and colon cancers. The fiber in mango enhances the digestive function thereby burning more calories aiding in weight loss. Mango is an excellent source of vitamin A, B6, vitamin C and vitamin E which helps in promoting healthy skin and vision. The mango peel is also rich in many nutrients.

Mango, as we all know is a seasonal fruit, fresh season begins by March end when its rich fragrance heralds its arrival in markets. There are many varieties of mango, prominent ones being alphonso from the state of Maharashtra, sindura and bainganpalli from Andhra, malkova from Tamilnadu, totapuri and many more. Each variety has its own distinctive characteristic qualities. Mangoes should be checked for its intact skin without any bruises or cuts. Also, check for the fragrance of the mangoes. A fragrant fruity smell is an indication that the mango is ripe.
