LIVING making carbs count

A taste of the tropics

Delicious, nutritious and hailed the 'King of fruit',

sweet golden mangoes are among the most popular

fruits in the world…

Mangoes have been enjoyed for around 5,000

years - not just for their sweet taste and

chewy texture but also for their rich cultural

history. Originating from India, it's said that

Buddha found rest under a mango tree, and the fruit is

also widely considered a symbol of love and friendship.

Today, more than 400 varieties of mango available

worldwide. In the UK, the Kent and Tommy Atkins

varieties are commonly found in supermarkets as they

tend to last longer without spoiling. The Tommy Atkins

variety has red/green/yellow ombre skin with a mild

sweet flavour. It's also pretty fibrous and firm to the

touch. Meanwhile, the Kent variety is sweet, succulent

and has far less fibrous flesh than its siblings. When ripe,

it tends to be softer and a deep orange in colour.

All varieties of the fruit are fibre-rich and nutrientdense, with

many studies linking mango to several health

benefits, including improved immunity, eyesight and better

digestive health. Mango is particularly high in vitamin C -

76% of the recommended daily amount - which benefits

immunity, iron absorption and growth and repair.

Mangoes score 51-56 on the Glycaemic Index, which

is considered low or medium, similar to orange juice.

It's recommended that a serving of fruit should contain

about 15g of carbs, which is about two-thirds of a cup of

diced mango.
