Abstract

Mango fruits contain several nutrients which are beneficial for the improvement of people’s nutrition. Vitamin C is one of which highly needed by the body and can be used as a source of antioxidants.

Analysis of vitamin C levels in the samples was done by iodimetry method. The results showed that the vitamin C levels of Gadung were 83.66 mg/100 g on the half-ripe fruits, 101.82 mg/100 g on the ripe fruits, and 92.85 mg/100 g on the overripe fruits. Whereas the vitamin c levels of golek were 57.72 mg/100 g on the half-ripe fruits, 79.30 mg/100 g on the ripe fruits, and 61,14 mg/100 g on the overripe fruits.
