About the National Mango Board
The National Mango Board is an agriculture promotion group supported by assessments from both domestic and imported fresh and frozen mangos. The board’s vision, for mangos to move from being an exotic fruit to a daily necessity in every U.S. household, was designed to drive awareness and consumption of mangos in the U.S. marketplace. One serving or ¾ cup of the superfruit mango contains 70 calories, 50% of daily value (DV) vitamin C, 15% of DV folate, 15% of DV copper, 8% of DV vitamin A, 8% of DV vitamin B6, 7% of DV fiber and an amazing source of tropical flavor.
