Botanical Name: Moringa oleifera
Moringa is native to the sub-Himalayan mountain region particularly in India and has been introduced to southwest Asia, southwest and northeast Africa, Madagascar, the Philippines, California, Arizona, Hawaii and Florida. It is drought tolerant and thrives in semi-arid, tropical, and subtropical climates and is one of the most commonly cultivated food plants in the world. It is grown in many countries around the world including Pakistan, Africa, the Philippines, Central and South America and the Caribbean.
Our moringa powder is milled from organic Moringa oleifera leaves. The powder can be incorporated in culinary dishes, added to smoothies/shakes and blended into juices. The seed is high in oil, and the fibers remaining after oil extraction are one of the best plant-derived flocculants (clarifying agents) for clarifying water. Further, the roots are believed to taste like horseradish and are thus used as a condiment. The leaves have an extremely high nutrient value and are dried and powdered and put in sauces and baby formula. A beverage is made from the leaf, either as a standard tea or as a type of reconstituted dried leaf juice.
