The art of drying Moringa leaves

The art of drying Moringa leaves

The art of drying Moringa leaves

We researched many years how to dry Moringa leaves, now we know more…

We have ever started drying leaves outside because we didn’t know better ….

Then from washing machine dryers to gas dryers, layer dryers to automated dry machines with temperature, air and moisture control. We have learned a lot to where we are now and we learn every day. There is only one way, testing, testing and testing until you have achieved the desired result …. but test on which?

Customers like long shelf life, beautiful green color leaves (powder), tasty taste and high nutritional value for a reasonable price.

What does the customer want or demands?
You can test for long shelf life, you can test for nutritional value, you can test on beautiful color, taste or test on a nice average …

There have been several studies on the drying of Moringa leaves, which we are all very pleased with, because there are lots of things to learn, but there should be more, we can use so much information.
But you have to do it yourself, self-learning and self-knowledge and exploit its capabilities and optimize, only then are you able to each specific customer requirement.

So we start testing with different drying machines, different times, different temperatures, constant humidity measurement, nutritional value, taste, color, shelf life and cost price of any final product.

This is your Moringa end product.

If there are people wondering why we don’t report the results here, I do not mind if some things are copied but I’ve been working on it for a long time and still working on it …..

If you have questions regarding this article, please let me know.

Till the next time,
Kind regards, Jan

*) ps : I have left the testing of Chemical characteristics out of this, because I think it is obvious that products are being tested and controlled when making food.

Moringa at Cambodia is coming

Moringa at Cambodia is coming

Moringa at Cambodia is coming. It offers perfect conditions for Moringa trees.Moringa at Cambodia is coming. It offers perfect conditions for Moringa trees.

The organic Moringa value chain is an ideal crop since it grows year around, it supplements the daily meal with important minerals and vitamins. As Moringa is in most Western Countries a new product the market demand is growing rapidly.

It’s BACA-VILLA long term business interest to support the farmers and people in the rural Cambodia with measurements that they will be able to keep their land and provide a better life in terms of income, housing, hygiene, health and welfare.

Cambodia has one of the highest levels of forest cover in the region this makes it rich in natural resources and biological diversity – among the bio-richest countries in Southeast Asia. It offers perfect conditions for Moringa trees.

Moringa at Cambodia offers perfect conditions for cultivate Moringa trees not only the forest also the climate is excellent, Cambodia is located in Southeast Asia in the tropical zone, just 10-13 degrees north off the equator.
Furthermore >than 60% of the population is working in the agriculture and because the soil is from excellent high quality, the Moringa tree likes it here very much, which also means it stimulates the agriculture economy for the farmers.

Four Different Moringa Species

Four Different Moringa Species.

Moringa Stenopetala, Moringa Hildebrandtii, Moringa Drouhardii and the Moringa Oleifera.

Four Different Moringa Species.

Characteristics of seeds and kernels of Moringa-species.

A research from, Department of Livestock Sciences, Research Institute of Organic Agriculture, Frick, Switzerland.

The family Moringaceae is monogeneric and has 13 Moringa species
See the list here.
Moringa Oleifera, has more records of various kinds of research in scientific databases than of all the other 12 species combined. It has been found that all parts of Moringa Oleifera can be used.
For medicinal purposes, all parts of the plant (roots, leaves, seeds, bark, gum and flower) have been used to treat a multitude of diseases and deficiencies (Anwar et al., 2007).

Seed and leaf material from four different Moringa species were collected from all kind of countries to analyses them on Proximate Composition, Amino and Fatty Acid Profiles and Element Compositions.

Very interesting is to see the below table, the necessary amount of leaf dry matter intake (g) to cover 15% of the daily requirement of a child for the given nutrient of Moringa leaves. Requirement values from Golden (2009), with data from FAO where available, otherwise data from other sources (e.g. Institute of Medicine, IOM).

Effects of Moringa on Growth Yield Snap Beans

Effects of Moringa on Growth Yield Snap Beans.Effects of Moringa on Growth Yield Snap Beans.

Extracts from fresh Moringa leaves could  be used to produce an effective plant growth enhancer, increasing yield.

ABSTRACT:
Two  field  experiments  were  carried  out  to  evaluate  the  effects  of  Moringa  leaf  extract  on  the growth,  yield and yield components  of snap bean. The results  showed  that Moringa  leaf extract applied at 11, 20, 33 and 50% concentration to snap bean plants at 10 days after emergence significantly (P = 0.05) increased vegetative growth, leaf chlorophyll content, plant dry matter (shoot and root), yield components  and fresh pod yield. The snap bean response  to increasing  Moringa extract  concentration  was  quadratic  with  respect  to  plant  height,  leaf  area,  leaf  number,  leaf chlorophyll   content,   shoot   dry  matter   and  root  dry  matter.   However,   Moringa   leaf  extract significantly (P = 0.05) reduced shoot and root water contents. Due to the Moringa extracts-induced increase in vegetative growth, leaf chlorophyll content, yield components and yield of snap beans, it was concluded that Moringa leaf extract could be used to enhance the growth and development  of snap beans.

Since  animal  protein  is  more  expensive than plant protein, legumes are important in less developed countries for the supply of relatively inexpensive proteins for rural and urban populations. However, grain yield of commercial crops of common beans is less than 1.0 tons/ha in most developing countries. In order to meet the rising food demand, emphasis has to be put on improving yields per hectare. This can be achieved  through  plant  breeding, biotechnology and application of plant growth regulators to positively modify plant growth to economic advantage.

Extracts  from fresh Moringa  leaves could  be used to produce an  effective  plant  growth  enhancer,  increasing yield  by  25-30%  for  nearly  any  crop  [5].  The active growth  enhancing  substances  in Moringa leaf  extract  are  reported  to  be  zeatin, dihydrozeatin and isopentyladenine which are natural  (endogenous)  cytokinins  [5,6].  The moringa  leaf is also composed  of proteins, minerals, vitamins, essential amino acids, glucosinolates, isothiocyanates and phenolics.

Over the years Moringa plant farming has continued to flourish, as many farmers seize opportunities it offers for them to earn a living. It is a plant said to have enormous benefits for mankind.

Farmers in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) are beginning to use any available space to cultivate Moringa as it is said to be in high demand in the city.
