The volatile composition of two mango varieties (Alphonso and Baladi) was investigated by means of standard-controlled distillation-extraction, liquid-solid chromatography, and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. This combination led to the characterization of a spectrum of 114 components of which 81 were identified for the first time as mango constituents. In addition to this qualitative identification, the concentrations of the components were quantitatively determined in a range from 40 ppm to the ppb trace level. By this method clear differences between the two mango varieties could be demonstrated.
