Moringa is a genus of shrubs and trees with multi-purpose uses: its leaves, roots and immature pods are consumed as a vegetable. All parts of the moringa tree – bark, pods, leaves, nuts, seeds, tubers, roots, and flowers – are edible. The leaves are used fresh or dried and ground into powder. The seed pods are picked while still green and eaten fresh or cooked. Moringa seed oil is sweet, non-sticking, non-drying and resists rancidity, while the cake from seed is used to purify drinking water. The seeds are also be eaten green, roasted, powdered and steeped for tea or used in curries.
Moringa oleifera cultivation and consumption of various Parts of this crop like leaves and pods, enhances the nutritional status of human being. The following nutrients are present in this crop.
- Moringa leaves are having 40% of protein with all the nine essential amino acids
- The amount of Beta carotene , vitamin C and vitamin E found in moringa exceed those amounts commonly found in other plant parts.
- Beta carotene (Pro vitamin A) moringa leaves contain beta carotene than carrots about 3 to 5 times are more. Vit. A is the most important vitamin for immune protection against heart disease and keep harmful lipoprotein containing cholesterol from damaging heart.
- Vitamin C Just one ounce of Moringa leaves contains the daily recommended amount of Vitamin C.
- Vitamin E is a potent anti oxidant that helps prevent premature ageing and degenerative disease including heart disease, arthritis, diabetes and cancer.
- Vitamin B1 is the vital for production of energy in each cells and it plays essential role in the development of carbohydrates.
- Vitamin B2 (Ribo flavin) also present in moringa leaves.
