In recent years, consumer demand for dairy-based probiotic products has increased. Fruit juices may be an alternative vehicle for the incorporation of probiotics because they are rich in nutrients and do not contain starter cultures that compete for nutrients with probiotics. Furthermore, fruit juices are often supplemented with oxygen scavenging ingredients such as ascorbic acid, thus promoting anaerobic conditions. Fruit juices contain high amounts of sugars which could encourage probiotic growth and the decrease in the sugar content could easily be monitored using are refractometer. The probiotic action of fruit juices is beneficial, as these are rich sources of healthy nutrients such as antioxidants, vitamins, food fibres and minerals. Mango contains a high concentration of sugars, acids with good organoleptic properties. Probiotic cultures have been with mankind ever since people drank fermented milk and eaten fermented foods.
