Common Name: Mango
Botanical Name: Mangifera Indica
Mangos can be found throughout the Andes Mountain region. Processing varies slightly with different fruits, but all fruits are thoroughly washed prior to peeling or slicing. Once preparation of the fruits is finished they are placed on racks and put into the freeze dry machine. Water is then removed from the fruits through a process called sublimation. This process gives freeze dried fruits the ability to re-absorb water later on.
The Mango is one of the most nutrient rich fruits, with Vitamin A, B6, C, & bioflavonoids. Mangos are another fruit that is considered to be a superfood because of its nutritional value. The bioflavonoids found in mangos aid the immune system, which is the reason it is considered a superfruit.
