Mango Ginger - (Curcuma amada Roxb.) is a member of the family Zingiberaceae. The plant is native to India.
The plants are herbaceous, and the rhizomes have the characteristic odor of green mangoes. At the time of harvesting, entire plants are lifted up with a crowbar, and the rhizomes are collected, cleaned, and dried in the shade. On distillation, the rhizome yields essential oil, which consists mainly of pinene, ocimene, and linalool. The rhizome is mostly used in Indian pickles and is considered stomachic and carminative. It is also applied over contusions and sprains.
Mango ginger has proved as an effective antimicrobial agent for M. luteus, B. cereus, and B. subtilis. Additionally, antioxidants were found to be present in mango ginger and were found to be easily extractable.
