The high demand and production rate of Mango (Mangifera indica L.) inevitably lead to a significant wastage of excess produce. The current research aims to screen and characterize phenolic compounds and estimate their antioxidant potential in rejected mangoes. It was found that Honey Gold variety possessed the highest Total Phenolic Content (TPC) (2.37 ± 0.06 mg GAE/g) and antioxidant capacity through 2,2′-diphenyl-2-picryl-hydrazyl (DPPH) (2.13 ± 0.09 mg AAE/g) assay. The LC-ESI-QTOF-MS/MS characterized a total of 86 phenolic compounds in different mango varieties including Kensington Pride (31), Keitt (30), Honey Gold (29), Calypso (28), and Palmer (14). In high-performance liquid chromato..
