Raw mangoes are green in color, but the ripe ones are not just yellow as there are also some varieties that sport other colors, such as orange, purple, and red. The color is one of the main differences, along with the taste. Raw mangoes are sour, which can be attributed to the presence of various acids, including succinic, maleic, and citric.
Both raw and ripe mangoes are high in Vitamin C, but raw ones are considered to have higher amounts of the vitamin. Another difference is that raw mangoes contain pectin, which is a polysaccharide that you can also find in other fruits, such as apples and berries. Pectin is fiber and is also used in making medicines, especially for people with high triglycerides and cholesterol levels. It is also used in colon cancer prevention.
Ripe mangoes are also healthy, which is why they are a favorite in many parts of the world.
