Moringa oleifera   
 

Quote
Common names include moringa, drumstick tree (from the long, slender, triangular seed-pods), horseradish tree (from the taste of the roots, which resembles horseradish), and ben oil tree or benzolive tree (from the oil which is derived from the seeds).

Tree and seed pods of Moringa oleifera

The taste is described as reminiscent of asparagus, with a hint of green beans, though sweeter, from the immature seeds contained inside. 😋

As Dr. Mercola reports, moringa is one of the most nutritious foods in the world, with a wide variety of firochemicals, macronutrients and micronutrients.

One gram of Moringa contains more calcium than one milliliter of milk, more potassium than one gram of banana, more vitamin A than one carrot and more vitamin C than one gram of orange.

An analysis of fresh Moringa leaves contains 27 mg of total carotene, 18 mg of beta-carotene and 143 mg of ascorbic acid per 100g.

Dehydration retains beta-carotene retention on 70% beta-carotene.

Approximate iron content 0.3mg, calcium over 300 mg, phosphorus 133mg, ascorbic acid 139 mg, oxalic acid 218, calcium: phosphorus ratio over 2.2: 1 and calcium ratio, oxalic acid over 1.2: 1.

Drumstick occupied the second and fourth place in classification of the highest content of ascorbic acid and calcium. pdfs.semanticscholar.org/1db3/08b3133aa5e197e2629143283b2075ac03e8.pdf  (2015).--

Another analysis on the result of the Moringa mineral composition expressed in mg for 100 g of matter was: 847.1; 151.3; 549.6; 17.5; 1.3 and 111.5 for calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc and phosphorus. in fresh matter, respectively. The contents thereof the minerals analyzed for dry matter are respectively 2098.1; 406.0; 1922.0; 28.3; 5.4 and 351.1. docsdrive.com/.../264-268.pdf  (2011)
