Mango (Mangifera indica L.) Seed Oil
Mango fruit has its prime importance in the market due to its healthy nutrients and improving well-being by preventing different disease. During processing its seeds are considered as wastes that are mostly dumped due uncommon in use. Recent studies showed that its waste can be employed for food security having latent medicinal traits. The presence of phytochemicals, bioactives and different fatty oils is further diverting the attention of food and nutritional scientist. Introduction of different extraction methods by analytical scientist makes a pathway to access these valuable natural constituents and can be used for different pathological complications. In this chapter, different aspects of mango oil have been described including their extraction and use in food processing as well as medicinal applications.
