Moringa oleifera Lam (Moringaceae) is a highly valued plant, distributed in many countries of the tropics and subtropics. Many parts of the Moringa are edible. Regional uses of the Moringa as food vary widely, and include: the immature seed pods, called "drumsticks", popular in Asia and Africa, leaves, particularly in South India and Africa, mature seeds, oil pressed from the mature seeds and roots. The objective of this study was to evaluate the potential of different morphological parts of…
