The health benefits of mangoes mainly refer to the flesh but think twice before throwing out the seed or pit.
To eat a mango seed, you’ll need to get to the center of the mango. You can certainly bite the flesh right off a mango seed without tearing into it, or you can carefully cut around it. Then you can use it in a variety of ways.
Can You Eat Mango Seeds?
“Mango seeds are not poisonous and can be safely consumed,” says dietitian Andrea Mathis, RDN, LD.
Though they’re not the most popular part of the mango, the seeds are edible. They’re flavorful and full of nutrients as well as a source of antioxidants, fats and protein, according to a September 2016 review in Trends in Food Science & Technology.
The seed of an unripe, green mango is soft and may be easily cut with a knife compared to the tough, fibrous seed of a ripe mango. “Mango seeds can be eaten, but it’s best to retrieve them from an unripe mango. Seeds from ripe mangoes are typically hard and bitter,” Mathis says.
