We are extremely fortunate to have access to these organically grown mangoes from Peru. Sun-ripened and grown without fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides, all you will receive in each package is a full pound of sweet dried organic mangoes. These mouthwateringly delicious mangoes are completely free of added sugar, sulfates, and other preservatives.
A few pieces of dried organic mango go a long way when you find yourself craving something sweet. They're also an excellent source of quick energy before and during workouts.
Mangoes belong to the same family of plants as cashews and pistachios, all of which come from fruit-bearing trees that are indigenous to tropical regions.
A small handful of dried organic mangoes provides close to 100 percent of the daily recommended amount of vitamin C, making mangoes excellent for supporting tissue healing, collagen formation, and optimal immune function. The same handful of dried organic mangoes provides large quantities of carotenoids, powerful antioxidants that protect all cells against premature degeneration including most forms of cancer.
Some of the beta-carotene in mangoes gets converted to vitamin A in your body, which supports healthy skin, strong mucous membranes, healthy vision, and optimal bone health. Having a regular influx of beta-carotene and vitamin A reduces risk of development of cancers of the oropharyngeal region and lungs.
Beyond being rich in vitamin C and carotenoids, mangoes are also a good source of vitamin B-6, which is essential to keeping your blood vessels and circulation healthy; adequate intake of B-6 helps prevents blood homocysteine from getting too high, which decreases risk of cardiovascular disease and degenerative neurological illnesses like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.
Mangoes are also a reliable source of dietary fiber which helps support optimal transit time of materials as they travel through your GI tract; a diet that includes sufficient amounts of plant fibers reduces risk of colo-rectal cancer.
Last but not least, mangoes are a good source of polyphenolic antioxidants that also decrease risk of colo-rectal cancer, as well as breast cancer.

These mangoes are soft and, of course, naturally sweet. Also, I appreciate that they're raw and organic. They were the perfect accompaniment for a 5 hour drive. (Fun fact: Mexican Customs currently allows dried mangoes in).
