  • Congo mango seeds w ere collected and the kernels were separated and dried. This study was carried out on mango seed kernels to clarify their proximate composition and the characteristics of the extracted oil including unsaponifiable matter and fatty acid composition. Mango seed kernels contained a considerable unsaponifiable matter, and a low amount of crude protein. Stearic acid w as the main saturated fatty acid, while oleic acid was the major unsaturated fatty acid in all lipid classes… CONTINUE READING
