A green mango is an unripe or underripe mango, which has a green color and firm texture.
Green mangoes are known for their tangy, sour, and slightly crisp flavor.
They are commonly used in culinary preparations, especially in Asian cuisines, where they are used in salads, pickles, chutneys, and other dishes.
Green mangoes can also be eaten raw, either plain or with a sprinkle of salt or spices for added flavor.

How to use Green Mango?
Green mangoes can be used in various ways in culinary preparations. Here are a few common ways to use green mango:

1. Mango Salad: Green mangoes are often used to make refreshing and tangy salads. Julienne or shred the green mango and combine it with other ingredients like carrots, onions, chili peppers, herbs (such as mint or cilantro), lime juice, and a touch of fish sauce or soy sauce for a delicious and vibrant salad.

2. Pickles and Chutneys: Green mangoes can be pickled or used to make tangy chutneys. Slice or chop the mango into thin pieces and marinate them in a mixture of vinegar, sugar, salt, and spices. These pickles or chutneys can add a burst of flavor to sandwiches, rice dishes, or as a condiment.

3. Salsa or Salsa Verde: Green mangoes can be used as a base for salsas or salsa verde. Dice the mango and combine it with ingredients like tomatoes, onions, chili peppers, lime juice, and herbs to create a zesty and refreshing salsa that pairs well with grilled meats, seafood, or as a dip with chips.

4. Smoothies or Juices: Green mangoes can be blended into smoothies or juices for a tangy and nutritious beverage. Combine the chopped green mango with other fruits like pineapple, banana, or citrus fruits, along with some liquid like water or coconut water, and blend until smooth.

5. Curries or Stir-Fries: In some Asian cuisines, green mangoes are used in savory dishes like curries or stir-fries. The tartness of the mango adds a unique flavor to the dish. Slices or chunks of green mango can be added to vegetable or meat curries, stir-fried with other vegetables, or incorporated into rice dishes.

Remember, the flavor of green mangoes can vary depending on their level of ripeness and variety. Adjust the seasoning and other ingredients according to your taste preferences.

Are green mangoes low FODMAP? 
Green mangoes are considered low FODMAP (Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides, and Polyols) fruits in small quantities. FODMAPs are a group of carbohydrates that can be poorly absorbed in the small intestine and may cause digestive symptoms in some individuals, especially those with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Green mangoes contain a type of carbohydrate called polyols, specifically sorbitol. Polyols are classified as high FODMAP. However, the amount of sorbitol in green mangoes is relatively low, especially when compared to ripe mangoes, which have higher FODMAP content due to increased fructose levels.

According to Monash University, a leading authority on the low FODMAP diet, a serving size of ⅛ of a green mango (40g) is considered low FODMAP and generally well-tolerated for most individuals following a low FODMAP diet. Larger serving sizes may contain higher levels of sorbitol and could potentially trigger symptoms in some sensitive individuals.

It's important to note that individual tolerances to FODMAPs can vary, so it's recommended to work with a registered dietitian or healthcare professional experienced in the low FODMAP diet to determine your specific tolerance and portion sizes. They can provide personalized guidance and help you incorporate green mangoes or other low FODMAP foods into your diet while managing your symptoms
