A way to put mangosteen into a bottle and make it taste good.

Posted Friday, September 14, 2007 (261 days 16 hours ago.)

 

When Morton first discovered the mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana), he knew he had struck gold. He sensed that the fruits dark, purple skin hid a wealth of anti-oxidants waiting to be unearthed. 

Asking around, Morton observed that while the fruit is valued for its flavour, the rind, or pericarp, has been used for generations both topically and internally. To treat skin rash, the rind was sliced, dried, ground and applied directly onto the skin. To cure diarrhoea, it was steeped in water overnight and the liquid drunk the following morning. 

Morton gathered an informal research team and launched into a detailed investigation of the mangosteen, utilising libraries, documented research and medical experts. The team established that scientists knew the mangosteen was a rich source of a phytonutrient (plant nutrient) called xanthones but no one had attempted to market it globally .
