In the present study, we investigated the potential application of infrared technology based on near infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) as rapid, robust and non-destructive tool to determine vitamin C content of intact mango. Near infrared spectral data, in wavelength range from 1000 to 2500 nm were acquired for a total of 62 mango samples. Spectra data were enhanced using extended multiplicative scatter correction (EMSC) prior to prediction models development. Vitamin C content of intact mangoes was predicted using two different regression approaches namely principal component regression (PCR) and partial least square regression (PLSR). Prediction performances were justified using several statistical indicators namely correlation coefficient (r), root mean square error (RMSE), and residual predictive deviation (RPD) index. The results showed that vitamin C can be predicted using NIR technology with maximum r = 0.99, RMSE = 1.33 and RPD = 5.40. It may conclude that NIR technology can be applied as an alternative fast, robust and non-destructive method in determining vitamin C content of intact mango.
