Abstract

The food and agricultural industries produce a large volume of wastes annually worldwide, causing a serious disposal problem. This is especially problematic in countries where the economy is largely based on agriculture and where the farming practice is very intensive. Currently, these agro-wastes are either allowed to decay naturally on the fields or are burnt. However, these wastes are rich in bioactive compounds, and other valuable compounds. Hence, utilization of biological wastes is of great concern to the industry due to legislation and environmental reasons and therefore, the industry is forced to find an alternative use for its residual matter. One of the agro-wastes currently causing pollution problems is the peels of the mango (Mangifera indica L.) fruit. It is cultivated or grown naturally in over 90 countries worldwide (mainly tropical and subtropical regions) and is known to be the second largest produced tropical fruit crop in the world. Mango peel is a major byproduct obtained during the processing of mango products such as mango pulp and amchur in the present study, the antioxidant activity and antiplatelet aggregation of mango peel extracts were examined. Polyphenol, anthocyanin and flavonoid contents in acetone extract of peels were determined.
