I love eating mangosteens. Mangosteen is a superfruit that contains a rich nutrient base along with the potential impact for lowering risk against various diseases. Mangosteens are also considered a ‘cooling’ fruit and many people will eat this fruit after eating durian – the king of fruit, to expel ‘heatiness’ from the body.
The flesh of fresh mangosteens is very white. However, sometimes among the white flesh, the flesh in some segments have a coating of yellowish slimy paste. Whenever I see this yellow paste, I will throw the entire mangosteen away. I wonder what the yellowish coating is and if it is detrimental to our health.
Would you eat the other segments of the mangosteen if a few segments have this yellow coating? Or you eat the yellowish flesh as well?
