The flavour and scent of the mango is plentiful and complex and caused by substances which belong to the groups of aldehydes, esters and volatile alcohol esters. When the fruit is fully ripe they reach their peak. Due to its exceptionally richness in provitamin A and vitamin C the mango provides an “extra security” regarding these two vitamins. The activity of vitamin C is most improved by the presence of “vitamin P” substances which potentiate its action. Just half a mango (about 180 g which means 120 g net) is enough to receive the entire recommended daily intake of provitamin A, and 2/3 of the total recommended daily intake of vitamin C. The needs for vitamin C and provitamin A are significantly elevated in smokers, pregnant women and young people during their growth so that the mango fits especially well into their diets. Mangos can be recommended for their “preventive action” vis-à-vis premature cell aging, some cancers, and atherosclerosis. It indeed contains high amounts of vitamins with beneficial antioxidant properties (vitamin C and vitamin E, provitamin A and other carotenoids), and abundant fibre.
