"Not only do that have amazing health contributions but that mangoes are succulent and juice !"
When picking a mango, don’t focus on color. It is not the best indicator of ripeness.
Squeeze the mango gently. A ripe mango will give slightly.
Use your experience with produce such as peaches and avocados, which also become softer as they ripen.
Ripe mangos will sometimes have a fruity aroma at their stems.
The red color that appears on some varieties in not an indicator of ripeness. Always judge by feel.
For decades, mangos have been used to soothe the stomach. Similar to papayas, they contain certain enzymes with stomach comforting properties. Mango is rich in fiber, so if you have at least one mango every day, you almost prevent constipation, plies, and symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Research published in Comprehensive Reviews in Food Science and Food Safety have demonstrated that dietary fiber has a positive effect on eliminating degenerative diseases, including certain cancers and heart conditions. The more you participate in strenuous activities, the more potassium you lose, which is yet another helpful effect of mangos – high potassium content!
According to Indian beliefs, mangos symbolize life and are used in almost every sacred ritual.
According to Indian beliefs, mangos symbolize life (the national fruit of India) and are used in almost every sacred ritual. Mango leaves are almost always used for festivals and wedding decorations. ‘Chutney’ made from Indian mangos has become universally popular. As the popularity of mangos has spread, many food manufacturers have introduced jellies, jams, squash, pickles, marinades, and spices that include pure mango flavor.
I had the pleasure of making a Mango fruit yogurt pie and a smoothie bowl, which I thoroughly enjoy on a weekly basis. Smoothie bowls are bomb!!
So check my recipes on the mangolicious treat!
