The leaves of the Moringa oleifera tree are very nutritious. They can be consumed fresh, cooked or dried. Since dried Moringa leaves retain their nutrient content, it is possible to convert them into leaf powder. When there is an abundance of leaves, this leaf powder can be made and stored easily. Moringa Leaf Powder is an excellent nutritional supplement and can be added to any dish.
Leaves will be dried in an area protected from light to prevent the loss of vitamins and protected from dust and pests to prevent contamination.If necessary, leaves will be covered by thin cloth or mosquito netting to help keep them clean while drying. The drying process will be completed as quickly as possible to prevent the growth of molds; if leaves mold or mildew they should be thrown out or used for compost.
