Digestion and nutrition
Other research that might be considered more in the future has to do with digestion and nutrition benefits.
Greg Golden, partner and sales manager at Amazon Produce Network, Mullica Hill, N.J., said mangoes may have an opportunity to expand more into the senior citizen demographic based on nutrition information.
“I am hoping that if funding permits the mango board will pursue some research studies on digestion to actually have some scientific basis to promote mangoes as a digestive aid,” Golden said.
The board already conducts regular nutrition research on mangoes and markets those results to help promote mango sales.
