The mango offers an extraordinary diversity of colors and flavors. Well-being food combines greedy pleasure and balanced nutritional intake.
With an energy intake of 60 kcalories (251 kJoules) per 100 g, the mango is one of the medium calorie fruits: it is situated between the apple and the cherry.
This energy value depends mostly on the carbohydrates (or sugars) of the fruit. The fruit becomes more abundant in carbohydrates as it ripens. The carbohydrate content also depends on the variety.
The aromatic and fragrant substances of mango are abundant and complex. They belong to the groups of aldehydes, esters, and volatile alcohol esters.
They reach their optimum when the fruit is fully ripe. They give the mango its distinctive flavor, reminiscent of apricot, pineapple, peach, and rose, with a slight touch of fig or ‘fir bud’, which is more pronounced in some varieties.

In mango, two vitamins are present in significant quantities: provitamin A and vitamin C.
The level of provitamin A increases the degree of ripening of the fruit. With the intensity of the color of the flesh (dark orange mangoes are the richest in provitamin A).
Vitamin C reaches an average of 44 mg per 100 g in mangoes, comparable to that of citrus fruits (pomelo, orange or clementine).
They are considered our preferred sources of vitamin C. Unlike provitamin A, vitamin C is more abundant in immature mangoes (110 to 130 mg), and its level decreases as the fruit ripens.
Mango also contains vitamins of the B group, in quantities comparable to those found in other fresh fruits.
