Within the past ten years, Moringa oleifera, a tropical, multipurpose tree has grown
from being practically unknown, even unheard of, to being a new and promising
nutritional and economic resource for developing countries. The leaves, which are
easy to grow and rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals, are becoming widely used
in projects fighting against malnutrition. Producing moringa leaves is also a means of
generating agricultural income, developing the food processing industry and founding
new businesses.
