Mango: Mangoes are incredibly popular in Bali and come in various types, each with its unique taste and texture. This succulent fruit is a nutritional powerhouse, offering high levels of vitamin C, vitamin A, and numerous other vitamins and minerals. Mangoes are rich in antioxidants, such as quercetin, fisetin, isoquercitrin, astragalin, gallic acid, and methyl gallate, which help protect the body against oxidative stress and reduce the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease and cancer. The dietary fibers in mangoes aid in digestion and promote gut health. Additionally, mangoes have compounds that support eye health, boost the immune system, and help lower cholesterol levels. The tropical climate of Bali provides ideal conditions for growing mangoes, making them a common and delightful treat found throughout the island.
