The Moringa plant is native to Northern India, where it was first described around 2000 B.C. as a medicinal herb. The oral tradition of Ayurvedic medicine in India declared that Moringa prevents 300 diseases Ancient Egyptians treasured Moringa oil as protection for their skin from the ravages of desert weather. Later, the Greeks found many healthful uses for Moringa and introduced it to the Romans. Moringa Oleifera, is very useful and is called the world`s most valuable plant. Virtually every part of it is edible. The leaflets can be stripped from the feathery, fernlike leaves and used in any spinach recipe. Very young plants can be used as a tender vegetable. The flowers can be eaten or used to make a tea and provide good amounts of both calcium and potassium. They are also good for beekeepers. The young pods can be cooked and reportedly have a taste reminiscent of asparagus. The green peas and surrounding white material can be removed from larger pods and cooked in various ways. Seeds from mature pods (which can be 2 feet long) can be browned in a skillet, mashed and placed in boiling water that causes an excellent cooking or lubricating oil to float to the surface. . It is an extremely fast growing tree and it is advisable to prune frequently beginning when they are young or they will become lanky and difficult to harvest. Breaking off tender tips (used in cooking) when the trees are about 4 or 5 feet tall, the trees become much bushier.

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2012 in the subject Chemistry - Analytical Chemistry, grade: 3, Kachchh University (Department of Chemistry), course: MSc, language: English, abstract: Moringa oleifera, an important medicinal plant is one of the most widely cultivated species of the family Moringaceae. It is highly valued from time immemorial because of its vast medicinal properties. The present study provides all necessary information regarding of four parts such as flower, leaves, seed and pulp of moringa like biochemical, phytochemical, mineral, antibacterial activity and its nutritional value. The benefits of essential nutrients and minerals for maintaining good health were also highlighted in this study. The results of proximate analysis of Moringa oleifera revealed that the protein (9.37%), carbohydrate (7.33%), ascorbic acid (2.10%) and total soluble sugar (0.73%) were highest in flower as compared to leaves, seed and pulp. While free amino acid (9.84%) was found to be higher in seed, total phenol (0.29%) was higher in leaves and reducing sugar (0.43%) higher in pulp of the moringa. The result of qualitative analysis of amino acid represented that lysine, glycine, threonine, valine, Isoleucine, tryptophan, alanine and cystein were present in moringa. The flower also contained higher amounts of crude fibre (0.23%) as well as moisture (90.56%), while fat (15.53%) content was found higher in seed. The dry matter (30.40%) and total ash (2.12%) content were higher in leaves. The ash content represented minerals in different amounts. The higher amount of potassium was found in flower (50.9%), seed (40.7%) and pulp (77.00%). Leaves contained higher amount of Calcium (57.18%). However Aluminum (10.00%) and Magnesium (6.07%) were found only in leaves. The result of heavy metal (zinc, lead and cadmium) and analysis represented that flower, leaves, seed and pulp have zinc (Zn), lead (Pb) and cadmium (Cd) found in lower amount then permissible limit for human body. The results of phytochemical analysis showed that terpenoids and steroids were present in all parts of moringa. Alkaloids present only in seed. Flavonoid was present in flower and seed, saponins was present in leaves, and tannin was present in leaves and seed. The result of antibacterial activity of different types of sample (flower, leaves. seed and pulp) of moringa showed that salmonella typhii was effectively inhibited to all the extracts studied. But Escherichia coli were not inhibited by any extract. Methanolic extract of flower, leaves, seed and pulp were highly sensitive against the salmonella typhii bacteria

Technological innovations into metal recoveries from waste streams have been limited by factors such as low metal recoveries; costs and technical expertise associated with the application of the technologies, especially in disadvantaged communities; extensive use of chemicals and, that most of the techniques are inappropriate for low metal concentrations. This is where the hypothesis of the study is premised: that a plant based natural polymer at different stages of chemical treatments can be used to remove metallic contaminants from aqueous solutions. The bark of Moringa oleifera, a naturally growing plant native in India, Mexico and Middle East, was used to test the validity of this hypothesis.

Despite the importance of forests and trees, Senegal is facing to the loss of forests and the decline of tree diversity and density. This study focuses on Moringa oleifera Lam., Acacia mellifera (Vahl) Benth. and Zizyphus mauritiana Lam. which constitute a significant source of food and economic value for the populations of Casamance. In addition to a germination test, a follow-up of seedlings on different substrates was carried out in the nursery, in order to determine the effect of substrates on some growth parameters (number of leaves, height, diameter and biomass). The substrates used were three potting mixtures of forest soil of Faidherbia albida (FSFA), Elaeis guineensis (FSEG) and Anacardium occidentale (FSAO) and sand with the following proportion: 1/3 sand + 2/3 forest soil). Based on species, the germination rate was higher for A. mellifera (84%) followed by M. oleifera (55%) and Z. mauritiana (50%). The germination rate was more important in FSFA and FSEG than in FSAO. For growth parameters, there was a significant effect (P

Abstract: Mo -CBP3 is an antifungal protein produced by Moringa oleifera which has been investigated as potential candidate for developing transgenic crops. Before the use of novel proteins, food safety tests must be conducted. This work represents an early food safety assessment of Mo -CBP3, using the two-tiered approach proposed by ILSI. The history of safe use, mode of action and results for amino acid sequence homology using the full-length and short contiguous amino acids sequences indicate low risk associated to this protein. Mo -CBP3 isoforms presented a reasonable number of alignments (>35% identity) with allergens in a window of 80 amino acids. This protein was resistant to pepsin degradation up to 2h, but it was susceptible to digestion using pancreatin. Many positive attributes were presented for Mo -CBP3 . However, this protein showed high sequence homology with allergens and resistance to pepsin digestion that indicates that further hypothesis-based testing on its potential allergenicity must be done. Additionally, animal toxicity evaluations (e.g. acute and repeated dose oral exposure assays) must be performed to meet the mandatory requirements of several regulatory agencies. Finally, the approach adopted here exemplified the importance of performing an early risk assessment of candidate proteins for use in plant transformation programs. Highlights: This work represents an early food safety assessment of Mo -CBP3, an antifungal protein from Moringa oleifera seeds. Mo- CBP3 sequences presented reasonable number of alignments (>35% identity) with allergens in a window of 80 amino acids. Mo -CBP3 was resistant to pepsin degradation up to 2h. Further hypothesis-based testing on Mo -CBP3 allergenic potential must be done. Animal toxicity evaluations (e.g. acute and repeated dose oral exposure assays) must be performed.

Biotechnology is emerging as one of the most innovative technologies in life sciences and is influencing almost every aspect of human life. It provides a set of tools, which if appropriately integrated with other technologies can be applied for the sustainable development of agriculture. Tissue culture is being used to propagate rapidly difficult to root crops and conserve endangered/rare medicinal plants. PCR technology has made it possible to fingerprint genotypes and understand better their genetic relationship. Genetic transformation through direct and vector mediated gene transfer now makes it possible to incorporate novel genes for desirable traits. The various bioinformatics tools help to interpret the complex data available from biological experiments. the book has two volumes divided into 8 sections comprising of more than 140 research articles and papers.
