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

Moringa at Cambodia is coming

Moringa similar to powdered milk at a fraction of the cost

Moringa similar to powdered milk at a fraction of the cost.Moringa similar to powdered milk at a fraction of the cost.

The potential of Moringa is far greater than your local cold-pressed juice counter.
Moringa is not only exceptionally drought-resistant but its leaves have a huge amount of protein, about 30 percent dry weight.

Kale and Matcha have long since ruled the supergreens kingdom. But recently, a powerful new grassy-hued food has started making waves as an even healthier alternative. Moringa oleifera, also known as horseradish tree because of the pungent, bitter flavor of the roots, is a tree native to India, Pakistan, and Nepal. You may have noticed the catchy name, which sounds more like a salsa dance move than a superfood, cropping up as an ingredient in smoothies, juices, and booster shots at health food shops nationwide. Some have already called Moringa, with its seemingly endless list of benefits, the next big supergreen of 2017. But while it may strike the average green-juice–swigging American as new, the nutrient-packed plant has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years.

Mark Olson, a professor of evolutionary biology at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, who has studied Moringa for more than 20 years. “Moringa is not only exceptionally drought-resistant but its leaves have a huge amount of protein, about 30 percent dry weight, similar to powdered milk at a fraction of the cost. With so much of the global population facing protein-energy malnutrition, a protein-rich food that grows well in a drought-prone area of high population density is very important,” says Olson.

“What is really exciting about Moringa is that it provides needed nutrition and ‘nutraceutical’ effects for people in places where these things are really needed,” says Olson.

On the complete opposite side of the spectrum, today many Americans are considered to be overfed but undernourished, sometimes suffering from micronutrient deficiency as a result. In these reverse situations, Moringa could also be used as a similarly beneficial nutritional supplement in nations where calories are readily available but which class someone is in too often determines access to nutritious food.

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).
