Where to Buy Low Sugar Mango Slices – A Well Stocked Pantry

October 16, 2016

Mango is one of my favorite fruits to snack on, they’re sweet, juicy, and filling.

When fresh mango is out of season, low sugar mango slices come in handy.

Dried mango is a tasty and convenient way to enjoy this tropical fruit year-round.

Low sugar mango slices make it easy to pack a healthy snack – that tastes almost like candy – wherever you go.

You can use them to sweeten up your granola, decorate cakes and pies,  create energy bars, or make raw snacks.

I love how they beautify and boost the nutrition of your snacks and desserts at the same time.

Because they are low in sugar, you can also enjoy them on their own.

Dried fruit tends to be high in sugar, but low sugar mango slices offer a healthier way to snack on dried fruit.

Let’s get to know a little more about this dried fruit


A Well Stocked Pantry – Low Sugar Mango Slices


What are Low Sugar Mango Slices

Low sugar mango slices are made with fresh mangoes that have been harvested at their peak season.

The mangoes are washed, peeled, sliced, sweetened (usually with sugar), and dried.

Low sugar mango slices have a lower percentage of added sugar than regular dried mangoes.

Mangoes have high concentrations of two phenolic compounds: mangiferin and gallic acid.

Mangiferin has impressive antioxidant, anticancer, antimicrobial, antiallergenic, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic effects. Studies show it can protect your immune system by fighting oxidate stress in white blood cells and liver cells.

Gallic acid also has antioxidant, anticancer, and antimicrobial effects. Studies show it can prevent and diminish allergic reactions.

Mangoes also contain vitamin C, vitamin A, and soluble fiber that aids your digestion.

As you can see, mango slices are as good as they taste.


What to look for in buying Low Sugar Mango Slices

It’s important you double-check the sugar percentage in your mango slices before you buy them.

You can measure it in the ingredient list or in the nutritional information.

The low sugar mango slices from Foodster show the percentage of each ingredient used in the product.

For instance, there is 72% mango and 26.97% sugar in the slices.

If you can’t find percentages, check the amount of sugar in the nutritional information. Low sugar mango slices have around 15g of sugar per serving.

Make sure your mango slices have been sweetened with plain sugar or other natural sweeteners, not with low-calorie artificial sweeteners or high-fructose corn syrup.

Your mango slices should also be free of any artifical mango flavorings.
