Wine from mango fruits

Now wine can be made from mango fruits apart from traditional sources like grapes and apples. Scientists (Research team led by Dr. Neelima Garg) from Central Institute of Subtropical Horticultural Research (CISHR), Lucknow produced wine from mango varieties viz. Dussehri, Langra, and Chausa native to Uttar Pradesh. Alcohol content in this slightly yellow, sweet drink is 8 to 9 percent, lower than a typical wines made from grapes which generally range from 10-15 percent. The team said that the process of fermentation is not very tough as mango contains huge quantities of sugar, which is the basic source of alcohol, but balancing the viscosity is what needs to be done very carefully. Scientists are hoping that these wines one day compete with the traditional grape-based variety.
