Mango puree is a thick, smooth product which has been processed such that the insoluble fibrous parts of ripe mangoes (Mangifera indica) are broken up so as to be able to fit through a fine sieve. In some cases, the puree is pasteurised to increase shelf life.
The process involves washing, destoning, thermal treatment, homogenisation, de-aeration, pasteurisation and packaging. Mango purée is used as a food ingredient, primarily for juice and nectar manufacturers but also in dairy and bakery products. Mango purée can be sold as frozen or aseptic.
The purees also retain all of the juice and a large proportion of the fibrous matter naturally found in the raw fruit.
