Additional Information:
Dried mango is made from the succulent stone fruit that grows on the Mangifera – a flowering tree of the Anacardiaceae family, which thrives mainly in Asia, Africa and South America. The mango is one of the most cultivated fruits in the tropics, the national fruit of India, Pakistan and the Philippines, and is often referred to as the ‘king of fruits’.

Mango is delicious in cereals, cakes, biscuits or simply as a healthy Snack. Try adding these dried mangos in an exotic Chicken Biryani recipe or combine it with some couscous for a sultry tropical flair.  A tempting organic snack made ​​from pure and unheated pieces of mango that have been hand-picked and gently sun-dried to ensure an optimum retention of valuable nutrients, including dietary fibre, vitamin C, phytochemicals, polyphenols and provitamin A carotenoids. Deliciously sweet and fruity, dried mango contains only natural fruit sugars and is pleasingly free from flavourings, colourings, preservatives or any other additives, making it a particularly sensible snack between meals, that’s especially suitable for children.

Storage Advice:
Some benefits of proper food storage include eating healthier, cutting food costs and helping the environment by avoiding waste.

Dried fruits are simply fruits with the water removed. This makes your fruit last much, much longer than if they were fresh. Since most of the water is removed from the fruit the flavour is intensified, the storage is simplified and the shelf life is greatly lengthened. The drying process can be done naturally by the sun or in a dehydrator (or less often in a slow oven). Because of its vibrant taste and proven health benefits, like no fat and high fibre, dried fruit is one of the easiest and most popular ways to eat fruit. It is especially popular with hikers and cyclists.

How long does dried fruit last?
When properly stored, the shelf life of dried fruits such as raisins (dried grapes), craisins (dried cranberries), dried apricots and many other dried fruits will last well beyond their best by date. Remember that dried fruit, like some other fruits, usually has a best by date and not a use by date or expiration date. Because of this distinction, you may safely consume dried fruit even after the best before date has lapsed.

You can help dried fruit stay fresh longer by storing it in your refrigerator or in your pantry in a tightly closed container to keep out moisture and other contaminants. Some fruits, like prunes which are moister than many of the others, enjoy the moisture of the fridge and taste better cold.

For a long-term option, you can also store your dried fruit in a freezer. Freezing is supposed to be an indefinite form of storage, but after varying amounts of time, most foods start to break down or develop freezer burn. Properly dried fruit seems to be an exception – it really does freeze well for extended amounts of time if properly sealed with an airtight sealer.
