From the report on “Analysis of Leaf Powder for Nutritional Composition, July 17, 1998 by Campden and Chorleywood Food Research Association in conjunction with the Department of Engineering at the University of Leicester and Church World Service, affiliate of the National Council of Churches
In many cultures throughout the tropics, differentiation between food and medicinal uses of plants (e.g. bark, fruit, leaves, nuts, seeds, tubers, roots, flowers), is very difficult since plant uses span both categories and this is deeply ingrained in the traditions and the fabric of the community (85). Thus, Table 1 in this review captures both nutritional and medicinal references as they relate to Moringa, whilst avoiding most of the better known agro-forestry and water purification applications of this plant. The interested reader is also directed to the very comprehensive reviews of the nutritional attributes of Moringa prepared by the NGOs mentioned earlier .
