Mango consists of between 60-75% flesh; 14-22% seed and 11-18% peel.
The relative proportion of different parts varies with varieties and stage of maturity.
Because of 25-40% of seed and peel in a fruit, a huge amount of waste is generated during industrial processing.
Such by-products are a serious disposal problem, so a commercial utilization for mango peel and kernels is sought after.
Both seed and peel are rich in many useful compounds and could be utilize in different ways.
