Moringa Seed Extracts
Moringa (Drumstick tree) is a South Indian tree that is also now cultivated in other areas such as Africa or South America. In India, Moringa is traditionally used as staple food and as ‘Medical Plant’ as part of the Ayurvedic nutrition and therapy. Moringa is very rich in various nutrients including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, lipids, isothiocyanates, flavonoids, polyphenols, etc. Moringa is a new and powerful superfood. Glucomoringin (GMG) is a specific glucosinolate in Moringa. Moringa seeds and leaves are rich in Glucomoringin (GMG), the seeds do not contain chlorophyll, so the extracts are snow white. Benzyl isothiocyanate (BITC) is a natural isothiocyanate that is found in different plants of the mustard family. Glucomoringin is a solid, odourless compound, which is stable at room temperature and has almost no taste, which makes it markedly different from other natural bioactive isothiocyanates such as sulforaphane for example which are volatile liquids, with a strong pungent smell and taste.
