Mango is an important tropical fruit in terms of production and consumption, characterized as a fruit of high potential for technological use in the food industry in the formulation of new functional products, presenting an excellent nutritional profile and an important variety of bioactive compounds. Identified of these potentialities, the present study had an investigative focus, testing the formulation of functional foods, from the addition of the dried mango pulp by foam mat drying and performing the sensory analysis of the preparations in order to identify the acceptability of these products formulated with the processed mango compared to products added from fresh mango. Two preparations were formulated (mousse and soft drink) using dehydrated mango as an ingredient. Both formulations were subjected to sensory testing. The panel had 90 tasters and three different analyzes were performed (acceptability, purchase intention and difference test using the triangular method). The results showed a high potential for reconstitution and dispersion of the dried mango pulp in the tested formulations, pointing to its promising use in the food industry. Through sensory analysis, it was possible to identify that the formulations were well accepted by consumers and the results indicate a high potential for commercialization in the food market. Finally, the study showed that the dehydrated mango pulp has excellent technological characteristics to be used in the formulation of new foods.
