Abstract:
Drumstick (Moringa oleifera) is one of the world’s most nutritious crop and is one the most popular vegetables grown throughout India. It has helped mankind in combating malnutrition in children and increase immunity. It is a multi function plant cultivated in the tropics around the world for high protein, vitamins, minerals and carbohydrate content. The Moringa oleifera pods having average weight of pod (70.5 g), average weight of 100 pod (7061 gm), average length of pod (47.5 cm), width of pod (5.3 cm), number of seeds/pod 15 and weight (43.1 g)/100 seed. The moisture content of Moringa oleifera pods was 84.01 ±2 per cent, total ash content was found to be 2.94±0.02 per cent. The crude protein, Crude fiber and fat content were 3.4±0.50, 5.1±0.70 and 0.1±0.002 per cent respectively. The potassium content of Moringa oleifera pods was 248 ±9 mg/100g. From the research it was concluded that the Moringa oleifera pods having very good nutritional value and having good source of nutrition.
