Ethanolic extract of mango peel

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

The ethanolic extract of mango peel is a product obtained from mango peel using ethanol as a solvent for extraction of peel phytochemicals. Using ethanol, other organic solvents or hot water for extraction of fruit compounds, such as from grapes or apples, is a common industrial process.[1]

Mango (Mangifera indica) is a tropical and subtropical grown fruit popular for its vibrant color, unique taste, and nutrient content.[2] Mango peel is 15-20% of the overall mass of mango fruit.


Mango peel contains numerous phytochemicals, consisting of more polyphenols than does mango flesh.[3][4] Mango peel also contains quercetin-3-O-galactoside, mangiferin gallate, isomangiferin gallate, quercetin-3-O-arabinopyranoside, and mangiferin as well as unsaturated fatty acids oleic acid, linoleic acid, and ethyl linoleate.[4]
