The mango was pulped and then the pulp was refined into a puree, being evaluated the independent variables called “Sieve mesh size” evaluating 5 mesh sizes and “Exposure time to atmospheric air” evaluating every 15 min up to 135 min, considering as a dependent variable “Color of mango puree” evaluating the Hunter Lab coordinates. The objective was to determine if there is a significant difference in the influence of the independent variables versus the dependent variable. It was obtained that the refined puree, the smaller the size of the holes in the mesh, as well as when the exposure time to the environmental air increases, the lower the luminosity values and the b-coordinate (yellowish) will be. By means of a two-factor factorial design, is concluded at a 5% significance level, that a significant difference exists, then the alternative hypothesis is accepted and the null hypothesis is rejected.
