The Moringa tree is one of the most incredible plants I have ever encountered. This may sound sensationalist, but Moringas nutritional and medicinal properties have the potential to give a healthy life and to end the many severe problems like malnutrition. It is a good source of nutrition specially in poor communities in tropics and sub tropics because this tree is in full leaf at the end of the dry season when other foods are typically scarce. The objectives of this study are to study the nutritional properties of moringa leaves& to know the dietary benefits of moringa leaves. In this study products- Moringa Nachos and Moringa Khakhra are analysed for proximate composition. These tests are determined at the RFRAC centre (regional food analysis centre) Lucknow. Results shows that the products- Moringa Nachos and Moringa Khakhra are rich in carbohydrate, protein, fat and energy.
