Author(s): Mahuwaa Chaudhary and Dr. Shabnam Chhabra
Abstract:
Consumption of junk food is increasing day by day leading to hazardous rise in lifestyle diseases and many other ailments related to various nutritional deficiencies. Rapidly growing interest in Nutraceuticals can possibly help in controlling them and also fulfill the health requirements. Use of antioxidant rich foods need to be incorporated in our daily diets to overcome these health problems. Fruits, being an excellent source of antioxidants can be used in form of fresh variety and also as preserved-dehydrated products. While processing of mango products, the peel and seed kernel are generated as waste; making them a source of environment pollution. Studies have reported that mango seeds are rich in antioxidants such as vitamin A, vitamin C and polyphenols; and can be used for edible purposes by humans. It is known that stimulation of the function and production of white blood cells assist in strengthening body’s immunity. So, developing products using mango seeds (in any form) may provide health-benefits beyond the traditional nutrients it contains; thereby promoting optimal health, longevity and quality of life. Therefore, it is resourcefully advantageous and environment friendly to procure and utilize valuable product - the mango seed kernel flour. Above all, this resource utilization can contribute towards food security.
