Dr. Edralin Lucas is a researcher who has been working with the National Mango Board (NMB) on investigating the health benefits of fresh mangos on body composition and bone parameters. The NMB had the opportunity to interview her and learn more about her expertise and contribution to the mango industry.
The National Mango Board is thrilled to kick off 2012 with continuous opportunities to spread nutritional messages about our superfruit, the mango! This year, the NMB partnered with Produce for Better Health Foundation (PBH) and proudly became a full sponsor for their “Half Your Plate”
Not only are mangoes juicy and nutritious, the sweet taste matches up perfectly with savory football fare. Mangoes are an excellent source of vitamin A and C and contain more than 20 different vitamins and minerals. In addition to fresh mangoes, make a mango salsa to top your burgers and chips and watch the crowd go wild.” - Patricia Bannan
