Research and development (R&D) Activities

To fully utilize the nutritional, therapeutic and environmental uses of Moringa, BioTEI, is pursuing high impact research projects that aim to sustainably harness the economic benefits of the plant. The Canadian government through its NRC-IRAP, SR&ED and CleanTech programs has contributed funding for research projects of BioTEI. Here are some recent high impact R&D projects the company has successfully accomplished and current ongoing research project:




Research goal

Deciphering bio-functional properties of the  African wild tree, Moringa stenopetala, for food and therapeutic applications using innovative technologies.

Funding contribution: NRC-IRAP and SR&ED programs
Project 1. Characterization of High Value Food and Nutraceutical End Products from the Wild Moringa Tree (project No: 921795) 
Collaborator: Manitoba Food Development Center (FDC)
Project 2 : Developing Skincare Products and Seed Protein from African Moringa Plant (project No: 937623).
Using research results of these projects, BioTEI had developed high value food and skin care products here in Canada from Moringa leaves and seeds, which are currently in the local and international markets.
Project 3: Developing high value bio-products from Moringa stenopetala seed waste for water and wastewater treatment and other Applications in CleanTech Industries Funding contribution : WD-Clean Tech program The project develops and designed high performing activated carbons from Moringa seed meal and seed shell, which can be used for water purification and wastewater treatment.  
Project 4 (ongoing): Developing High-value Plant-based Protein and Other Food Ingredients from African Moringa Seed and Leaf Powder (project No: 953694)

 Some important research findings



Moringa PJ4430- Moringa stenopetala (Moringa leaf  powder from BioTEI Inc.)

Moringa organic- Moringa Oleifera (commercially available Moringa leaf powder) 

The experiment was conducted at AAFC- Innovative Therapy Research Laboratory in Canada 

Ultra-performance liquid chromatography analysis revealed:

  • Rutin was present in  Moringa steno leaf powder only.

  • 61.6 mg/g rutin was present in the  the dry leaf powder of Moringa Steno
