The 3rd Global Moringa Meet Showcases the Making of Moringa, from Soil to Superfood
Industry: Health and Nutrition
The Global Moringa Meet 2015 discusses the Making Of Moringa, An Ancient Indian Aurvedic Superfood, New Again With Global Mission on Nov 21-22, at Jaipur, India
Jaipur, India (PRUnderground) September 27th, 2015
In Ancient Indian Alternative medicine system Ayurveda Moringa has been revered among for hundreds of years, but currently it is vying for a position as the next super food trend worldwide. Acai berries, kale, quinoa, and chia seeds have all been deemed superfoods and have attracted the attention of consumers, health experts, and food companies, which integrate these superfoods into their products. But to put Moringa at par with these so called superfood shall be a mistake and injustice to the majestic Moringa
In Acai berries, kale, quinoa, and chia; a particular part whether leaf, fruit or seeds is used but here nearly every part of the Moringa oleifera, or drumstick tree, is edible and packed with nutrition. Therefore it shall be more appropriate to say that Moringa is a Superfood providing tree. It gives many superfoods in form of leaf, fruit and seeds. Although most parts of the plant are edible, moringa’s power is in its leaves and seed pods, which are high in digestible protein, calcium, iron, vitamin C and antioxidants and have a nutritional profile that rivals milk and eggs.
So there is a million-dollar question “Is Moringa a New Superfood?”. To get the exact answer one has to attend the one and only Global Moringa Meet taking place in November in beautiful pink city, Jaipur India. 3rd Global Moringa Meet is the premier destination for Moringa growers, producers and professionals interested in the latest Moringa production technology, news and policy. The Global Moringa Meet provides tools to all stakeholders of Moringa industry pros use to plan learn and grow their business – whether at the office, in the farm or at factory.
The Moringa Tree is often called the “the miracle tree” or the “tree of life.” In the Philippines, they call it a “mother’s best friend.” In Senegal, it’s the “never die tree.”. In India it is called “live together tree”
Virtually every part of the Moringa (Moringa oleifera) — pods that taste like string beans, leaves redolent of spinach, seeds reminiscent of peanuts, roots that taste like horseradish — is edible and packed with nutrients. A small serving of the humble-looking moringa’s tiny leaves has seven times the amount of vitamin C of an orange, four times the calcium of milk, and four times the beta-carotene of carrots, according to nutrition researcher C. Gopalan’s Nutritive Value of Indian Foods. Not surprisingly, the tree, which is native to north India, is developing a cult following among natural foods enthusiasts.
But the slender, scrawny looking tree has got far more than nutrition going for it. The Moringa might be the fastest growing valuable plant in the world — it grows up to 15 feet, from seed, in its first year. Because it’s drought-resistant, the Moringa can grow freakishly fast in precisely the hot, dry subtropical areas where malnutrition is most prevalent, and where other crops wither (hence “the never die” nickname).
The Moringa is also a promising biofuel and medicinal source. For hundreds of years, people have been using the Moringa for everything from cooking oil and cosmetics to animal feed and cleaning agent. But undoubtedly the most amazing quality of the Moringa is that it can purify water. Just drop some crushed Moringa seeds in a bucket of dirty, unsafe water, and within about an hour, that water will be safe to drink. Scientists say it’s because the Moringa seeds produce chemicals that cause dirt and bacteria and other pollutants to settle. The Moringa seed could provide a simple yet valuable tool in poor communities where diarrhea caused by water-borne bacteria is one of the biggest sources of childhood fatalities, according to a paper in Current Protocols in Microbiology.
When a food ends up bearing the superfood tag in the U.S., it’s not uncommon for food companies to jump at the opportunity to use the trending ingredient . According to Global Industry Analysts, the global market for functional foods or “Superfoods” is expected to reach $130 billion next year, Superfoods, like omega-3 oils and dietary protein and fibre found in Moringa, have demonstrable health benefits. The sector is growing globally at a rate of 6% per year. The trend looks set and long term. Shares of United Natural Foods and Whole Foods Market are up 300% and 350% respectively in the last 5 years. India meets more than 80% demand of Moringa Products and thereby enjoying dominant position in the World Moringa Scenario. The global Moringa Products market estimated to be over US$ 4 billion is highly dependent on India. Therefore, Moringa has Big and Bright Business scope with 100% ROI
