Abstract

Utilization of mango peels (Mangifera indica) for the extraction of sugars

Author(s): C. S. Chidan Kumar, R. Mythily and S. Chandraju

Mangoes have been part of human diet for ages due to their health benefits. But consumption of these fruits generates outer skin wastes that may lead to environmental pollution. This study was carried out to explore the sugar components of mango peels. Selected samples are cut into small bits, dried, powdered and were subjected to sensitive extraction procedure developed using the mixture Methanol - Dichloromethane - Water (MDW) (0.3:4:1, v) and MeOH-H2O phase was assayed for sugar analysis. The extracted sugars were put through some chemical characterization procedures for purposes of separation and identifying its components. The various standard sugars were spotted using the solvent system n-butanol-acetone-pyridine-water (10:10:5:5, v) in the cellulose layer for TLC analysis which indicated the presence of glucose, sucrose, fructose.
