Abstract Share this page

Egyptian mango seeds were collected as wastes from local fruit processing units, the kernels were separated and dried. The antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of mango seed kernel extract and oil were investigated. The results indicated that combination of both mango seed kernel extract and oil had optimum antioxidant potency higher than each one alone. Addition of 400 ppm methanol extract and 5% mango seed kernel oil increased the oxidative stability of sunflower oil incubated at ambient temperature as well as sunflower oil during frying. Moreover, both extract and oil improved the stability and quality characteristics of fresh and stored potato chips. On the other hand, mango seed kernel extract reduced total bacterial count, inhibited coliforms growth, showed remarkable antimicrobial activity against Escherichia coli strain and extended the shelf-life of pasteurized cow milk. These results provide useful information on the utilization of mango seed kernel as natural antioxidant and antimicrobial in foods.
