The first thing that comes to our mind while going through the blazing days of summer is undoubtedly the super summer fruit ‘Mangoes’, isn’t it?

India is the largest producer of mango. European countries look-up to us for it, as the scorching hot summer is hard to get there. We are lucky enough as our country is bestowed with a huge variety of mangoes. Across the country we get different aromas, textures and tastes.

Mangoes are deeply connected to everyone’s childhood memories of good times. Mangoes were an inseparable part of summer vacations, as we all have childhood memories of going around with mangoes.

Children adore summer time the most, on the whole for two reasons : 

  • First and foremost it’s vacation time.
  • It’s time to gorge on mangoes!!!

But when we set foot in adulthood, we get down to shun this reminisce and cherished fruit.

As mangoes are ill- famed for weight gain. Mango can be the cause of weight gain if you have it in a form of ice-cream, aamras, milk-shake, mango pie like things which have added sugar.

Instead of all these if you consume it in its unprocessed form, without added sugar, it aids in weight loss. As it has bioactive compounds and phytochemicals which help to suppress fat cells.
