It is known for its vibrant flesh colour, juicy texture, sweet flavour, vitamins and minerals. Besides that, mango also contains anticancer and antiprollferation properties. Siamese mango was selected for optimization of puree sterilization. The Design Expert software version 6.0.8 was used to design the experiment to optimize puree sterilization conducted using Central Composite Design with to factor which are variation of temperature (85°C-95°C) and time (1-16 minutes). The optimum condition for the sterilization treatment was at 90°C and 30 seconds holding time.
