Moringa is among world’s most useful multi-purpose plants and is often nick-named as a ‘the miracle tree’. Almost all parts of this plant (its leaves, seeds, pods, flowers, and roots) are valuable.
The leaves, flowers, and green pods of this plant are rich in both macro and micro-nutrients are eaten as a staple vegetable in Eastern Africa. M. stenopetala (we refer it here as Moringa steno) is exceptionally rich in nutrients (protein, lipid, fiber, carbohydrates, minerals, and vitamins) and bioactive compounds.
It is highly useful for Food, Pharmaceutical and Cosmeticeutical Industries. Moringa is rich in essential nutrients and contains unique health benefit bioactive compounds.
