eHow claims the skin is inedible

3/2/10 6:27 P

I knew someone in college who was raised by missionaries in mango-growing areas. She said the skin was toxic. Or maybe that was the pit.

Persistence is more important than perfection.

Every part of the mango is beneficial and has been utilized in folk remedies in some form or another. Whether the bark, leaves, skin or pit; all have been concocted into various types of treatments or preventatives down through the centuries. A partial list of the many medicinal properties and purported uses attributed to the mango tree are as follows: anti-viral, anti-parasitic, anti-septic, anti-tussive (cough), anti-asthmatic, expectorant, cardiotonic, contraceptive, aphrodisiac, hypotensive, laxative, stomachic (beneficial to digestion)....

u can eat the skin but some ppl can become allergic to it. i dont know the nurtitional value of it... just that it is good for u... if ur not allergic that is.
