In the Mango Preservation Industrry, there is a huge amount of mango waste, comprising peels and stones, which at present is not fully utilized. The waste amounts to 35 to 55 per cent of the fruit, depending upon the variety and size of fruits. It is estimated that out of the 3.3 million tons of mangoes produced in India, over one million tons of mango seeds are available (Jain, 1961 and Das). This waste could profitably be utilized for the preparation of some important byproducts, by which, not only the cost of the premier products like canned mango slices, mango squash, etc., is considerably reduced, but also the problem of disposal of factory waste is solved. A review of the available literature on the utilization of mango waste by Pruthi et al. (1959) revealed that there was still considerable scope for further researches on the chemical and technological aspects of utilization of mango seed kernels. The present paper covers some of the important aspects of kernels of the two most important commercial varieties of mangoes, namely Badami (Alphonso) and Raspuri (Peter) grown in south India.
