Mangos: The World Loves Them – Should Americans Follow? Unpacking the Science and Exploring Opportunities for New Discoveries

A free webinar sponsored by the National Mango Board

March 23, 2023

12:00 PM – 1:30 PM ET 

The mango is a tropical fruit with a distinctive nutritional and phytochemical composition. It’ s one of the world’s most popular fruits; however, mangos remain relatively unknown to many Americans, despite yearly domestic consumption growth and an expanding body of positive research findings. Specifically, studies show associations with mangos and risk reductions for inflammation and metabolically-based chronic disease. Additionally, opportunities exist to explore how mango research findings can help advance ‘lifestyle medicine’ and ‘culinary medicine’ concepts stemming from the recent White House Conference on Hunger and Nutrition.

In this sponsored presentation Britt Burton-Freeman, Ph.D., will summarize the available literature assessing the health promoting potential of the edible mango flesh, focusing specifically on cardiometabolic pathways and sharing insights on mangos and brain, skin and intestinal health. Additionally, Sabrina Falquier, MD, CCMS, will discuss the global use of mangos, explore their culinary medicine application, and share ideas for increasing mango familiarity and usage among Americans with an emphasis on their relevance to cultural dietary patterns.

Learning Objectives

  • Assess the current state of the science on mangos’ potential role as a dietary
    intervention to reduce chronic disease risk.
  • Employ new insights on mango research to formulate future studies on the
    interaction between food, diet and disease.
  • Inform discussions and dialogues on mangos’ potential role as part of
    broader ‘food as medicine’ solutions.
