Summary Feedback
Mother’s Mango pickles are widely available in India and also abroad.
The pickle is made of primarily mangoes preserved in brine, an unspecified vegetable oil and spices and condiments.
We are disappointed to see that the quantity of salt used in the product is not mentioned on the food label, more especially as this is a pickle and they usually tend to contain high levels of salt, and customers buying this product have the right to know about the  quantity of ingredients they are consuming.
This food product does not specify which edible vegetable oil has been used. We believe that it is not responsible behaviour for a brand to avoid clearly stating what ingredients have been used.
Certain vegetable oils contain very large amounts of biologically active fats called Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which could be harmful in excess. Excess polyunsaturated fats may react with oxygen and oxidised Omega-6 fats can damage body functions and perhaps even vital structures like DNA. In addition, consumers need clear information about the type of vegetable oil used, so that they can take action to maintain a healthy balance between Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acid consumption. Some people may be allergic to specific oils. Food allergies can sometimes be life threatening.
