Abstract:

Mango kernel, a byproduct of mango processing, is of a fat content 9.0%~13.1% (dry basis). The extracted kernel oil is a high quality oil, which has high nutritional value and development prospect. In this paper, the research progress of mango kernel oil in recent years were summarized from three aspects: the physiochemical index, lipid composition, exploitation and utilization. By comparing with the triglyceride components of cocoa butter and cocoa butter alternatives, the problems in the research of mango kernel oil were clarified and reasonable suggestions were given. It is hoped to promote the further development of mango kernel oil research and provide theoretical guidance and basis for the research and industrial development of mango kernel oil.

Key words: mango kernel oil, physiochemical index, development and utilization
