NP Nutra announced it has produced a delicious new Mango Juice Powder, perfect for use by the supplement, food and beverage and cosmetics industries.
Known in Ayurveda as the King of Fruits, the Mango has been delighting taste buds around the world for centuries. The very scent of a Mango fruit hints at the deliciousness inside, and the taste of a Mango is incomparable.
The Mango fruit is full of dietary fiber, including the soluble fiber pectin. It is also a good source of vitamin B6, and a very good source of vitamin A and vitamin C. Carotenoids like lutein, alpha-carotene and beta-carotene are also present in the Mango. Mango fruits are abundant in polyphenolic compounds such as mangiferin, penta- O-galloyl-glucoside gallic acid, ellagic acid and methyl gallate. These polyphenols may be beneficial in fighting free radicals.
NP Nutra’s Mango Juice Powder captures the sweet flavor, color and polyphenolic compounds of fresh Mangoes, making them available year round in a convenient, shelf stable formula. It is 100 percent water soluble, making it a perfect fit for tropical juice blends, smoothie mixes, sports drinks, flavored yogurts, ice creams and sorbets as well as sauces, salad dressings and salsas. In body care products, Mango Juice Powder adds an exotic tang and creamy golden coloring to body butters, lip balms and natural skin care ranges.
Recent research at Oklahoma University to determine the effect of Mango on glucose and lipid parameters in high-fat-diet-induced obesity has led to the development of pilot studies in humans with results due to be published at the end of the year.
