Austrian company Esarom is already convinced
2018 - year of the mango?

Mango is currently one of the most popular tropical fruits, enjoyed all over the world. This notion has led Austrian taste specialist Esarom to believe that 2018 is the year of the mango. The company offers a new range of mango flavours and a variety of product ideas. Mango flavour can be used very widely: From vitamin water to fruit drinks, mango frozen yogurt to fruit gums, filled chocolates and even in combination with other fruits spices and herbs.

“Working on flavour pairing we spotted surprising combinations,” notes Isolde Tomann, head of flavour creation at Esarom.

Global product launches show that mango flavour is also very popular in industrially produced foodstuffs and beverages. This is because consumers know and love mango. And the image of mango is a very positive one. In India, people speak of the two seasons, monsoon and mango. “One refreshes the earth, the other the soul.”

A foodingredientsfirst.com article tells us how in some countries, mangos grow freely in gardens, while in other regions it is seen as a tropical fruit. And the Alphonso is of course the queen of mangos.

But what about Nam Dok Mai, Haden, Keitt, Kent, Osteen, Okrung or Tommy Atkins? There are around 1,000 mango varieties known –diverse in appearance and taste profile. The analysis of the taste profile of Alphonso identified 152 different flavours, there is a lot of unexplored potential of this fruit.

That is why Esarom believes this year could be the year of the mango.
