Isaacs, A.R. (1986) The freezing of mango slices (Mangifera indica var. Kensington). Food Technology in Australia, 38 (9). pp. 383-385.



'Kensington' mango slices were frozen with sucrose syrup, with dry sucrose and without sugar addition, using blast freezing at -30°C, and still air freezing at -18°C. According to taste panel assessment, slices frozen in syrup were best. A syrup strength of 200 g/L was sufficient to produce a high quality product. the blast-frozen slices had a higher texture score than the still air-frozen slices.
