The Quasi- experimental method of research was utilized in this study to find out the acceptability
of mango spread. The experiment was replicate three(3) times.
Research Locale
The study will be conducted at Naval State University- Biliran Campus which is located at Brgy. San
Isidro Biliran, Biliran which offers Agriculture and Fishery courses (Upper Campus) and Bachelor of
Secondary and Elementary Education (Lower Campus). This institution is formerly known as Biliran

the different aspect of quality/ acceptability. The remaining four (4) columns were for the corresponding
score. The tasters checked the column for corresponding score.
