    Hey Leah,
    Its suppose to be 40 - with the seed shell or without it. But you can estimate it - my family recipes are like that...hahaha - I little of this & a little of that but I would play around with the pieces of the mangoes because it is placed in a mayonnaise jar & tossed around & dried in the oven. But its pretty close to it - I hope this helps. Much Mahalo's
