Mango Market Alert: Fresh Mango Flavors Seasonal Menus
Orlando, FL (January 2011) – Nothing conveys a taste of the tropics like fresh mangos. Luckily, you can use them to bring a burst of sunshine to your menu all year-round. The National Mango Board (NMB) has made it its mission to educate foodservice professionals about the availability, selection and preparation of the world’s most popular fruit.
There are six major mango varieties available in the U.S. throughout the year. On the outside mangos vary in size, shape, and color. On the inside the subtle differences in flavor and texture fuel chefs’ imaginations for seasonal menus.
Getting to know fresh mango is the first step toward menu success. Download the two-page reference, Mango Varieties & Availability for year-round menu planning. Visit www.mango.org/foodservice for more information, including cutting guides, promotion ideas, nutrition information and recipes.
