Abstract:
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.
