Abstract The increase in consumption and production of tropical fruits promotes the need for research aimed at new aspects of nutritional and functional compounds of the Amazonian biodiversity. Thus, the objective of this research was to analyze the quality and functional potential of spondias mombin L., as well as its morphological pattern and the spectroscopic profile.The methodological bases and methods applied followed the internationally accepted standard of analysis indicated by the Association of Official Analytical Chemists (AOAC) and Brazilian Legislation, for the morphological analysis was used Scanning Electron Microscopy. From the obtained results, a fruit of considerable nutritional value with low energy value and high relevance in functional compounds such as vitamin C, with averages of 25.37 mg ascorbic acid / 100 g and its total carotenoid content with an average value of 1498,57 (μg.100g-1) showing the relevance of this fruit in pro-vitamin A. Micrographs of the structures revealed a plant matrix with presence of fibers and rare starch granules. The presence of fibers and vitamins A and C in this DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.20873/uft.2359-3652.2017v4n2p3Revista Desafios –v. 04,n. 02, 20174composition combined with its low energy value showed the ability to prevent certain pathologies that the consumption of this fruit can offer.
