Try it Tuesday - Mangoes



A super food?


Mangoes are packed with nutrition. I would put them in the category Super Foods, along with avocados, quinoa, and other super foods.


One cup (165 grams) of sliced mango provides:

  • Calories: 99

  • Protein: 1.4 grams

  • Carbs: 24.7 grams

  • Fat: 0.6 grams

  • Dietary fiber: 2.6 grams

  • Vitamin C: 67% of the Reference Daily Intake (RDI)

  • Copper: 20% of the RDI

  • Folate: 18% of the RDI

  • Vitamin B6: 11.6% of the RDI

  • Vitamin A: 10% of the RDI

  • Vitamin E: 9.7% of the RDI

  • Vitamin B5: 6.5% of the RDI

  • Vitamin K: 6% of the RDI

  • Niacin: 7% of the RDI

  • Potassium: 6% of the RDI

  • Riboflavin: 5% of the RDI

  • Manganese: 4.5% of the RDI

  • Thiamine: 4% of the RDI

  • Magnesium: 4% of the RDI

It also contains small amounts of phosphorus, pantothenic acid, calcium, selenium and iron.

One cup (165 grams) of mango provides nearly 70% of the RDI for vitamin C.


I love the taste of the mango. When tasting the recipes I made from it, even the popsicles, it is sweet, sugary, but tangy too.
