Are mango skins safe to eat?

 

Q. Is mango skin safe to eat?

 

A. Mango skins are full of fiber and edible if you are not allergic to poison ivy. Mangos contain a chemical called urushiol, this compound is in the flesh, but mostly found in the skin of mangos. If you have ever had an allergic reaction to poison ivy, eat mangos with caution.
