It's always best to choose locally grown mangoes. Mango has been named the most widely consumed fruit in the world. Green (raw) mango is perfect for salads as they are easy to slice or grate, their flesh can vary from a very pale colour to a deeper yellow and aren't sweet. They contain over 20 vitamins and minerals. Some of the possible health benefits include a decreased risk of macular degeneration, decreased risk of colon cancer, improvement in digestion and bone health, plus skin and hair. The green mango contains pectin which is different to the ripe mango. Pectin is fibre and is also used in making some medicines.
