Mango is golden-yellow or orange in colour with a deliciously sweet flavour and a mildly tangy aftertaste. Dried mango slices are slightly chewy in texture, but this varies from piece to piece, with large slices having softer flesh and thinner slices with more bite. They are perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth or if you need an energy pick-me-up.
Mangos are fantastic for boosting your mood as they release the pleasure hormones dopamine and melatonin. They also balance blood sugar levels, curb cravings from refined-sugary treats and are a source of fibre. They contain vitamin C, potassium, vitamin A and folate.
Nutritional benefits of dried mango
Dried mango is rich in numerous vitamins and minerals, making them an ideal snack when you’re feeling peckish or to add sweetness to dishes.
Abundant in vitamin C - The vibrant mango is packed with vitamin C, which builds collagen, the most abundant protein in your body. Collagen helps everything from eyesight to strong joints, skin elasticity and a healthy heart.
High in fibre - Mango is a delicious source of fibre that is essential for a well-functioning digestive system. Fibre is also great for heart health, stabilising blood pressure and minimising the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Source of potassium - The mineral potassium helps with regular functioning by providing cells with enough fuel to work correctly. Every tissue in your body needs potassium, so eating a handful of dried mango slices is a fantastic way to increase your intake.
Rich in vitamin A - Vitamin A is also known as retinol and enhances your immune system whilst helping essential organs, such as the lungs, liver, heart, and kidneys.
Contains folate - You need folate for growth and development, making it critical during pregnancy. When you don’t have enough folate, you may struggle with extreme tiredness and a decline in your mental health. So, include dried mango in your diet to keep your levels stable.
