From the article of Louelle Sheryl V. Go et al. (2015), p. 130–141.

(From left, counterclockwise): Carboxymethylated starch (CMS) from mango seed starch in vials, mango seed starch powder, scanning electron micrograph of mango seed starch granules, fresh mango seeds, and mango seed kernels. Mango seed starch (MSS) was extracted from the seed kernel of `Carabao´ mango (Mangifera indica L.) and converted to CMS. Carboxymethylation resulted in a product that has better functional properties than the native starch.
