Bioactive compounds, Vitamin C, β-carotene, Mango varieties


The sources of nutrients for the betterment of human are fruits and vegetables. Among the various fruits available in Bangladesh, mango occupies a vital place in the human nutrition for its delicious taste and higher nutritional value. Five different mango varieties (Fazli, Amrupali, Langra, Gopalbogh and Misribogh) available in Northern Bangladesh were used in this experiment to investigate the quality ofbioactive compounds.. Bioactive compounds,including ascorbic acid and β-carotene contents were evaluated. Bioactive compounds viz. vitamin C (28.63~40.92 mg/100g) and β-carotene (0.01593 to 0.02028 mg/g) were found to be significantly varied among the mango varieties (p≤0). It can be concluded from the results of this study that all the mango varieties are high in beneficial compounds for the human health. The study findings would be helpful for the consumers, dietitian and industry policymakers.
