Abstract

The addition of traces of iron, either alone or in combination with other metals like zinc, copper, lead and tin, to mang,o slices, packed in glass containers, results in the darkening of the product soon after sterilization. In the case of mango pulp, and also to some extent in the case of guava slices, traces of iron promote darkening. There is no perceptible deleterious effect in the case of papaya, pear and pineapple. Addition of ascorbic acid at 500 p.p.m. level to the syrup has a marked beneficial effect in maintaining the bright yellow colour and strong, characteristic flavour of the mango slices during long storage at ordinary temperatures.
