*Prachi P. Kshirsagar and Prabha Y. Bhogaonkar

ABSTRACT

Moringa oleifera Lam. is the most widely cultivated species of a monogeneric family, Moringaceae which is native to sub-Himalayan tracts of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. Now it is widely cultivated and has become naturalized throughout India and in many locations in the tropics. It is well known plant for its nutritional and medicinal potential; but most of the work has been regarding leaves and pods; therefore in the present study nutritive as well as medicinal potential of flowers was evaluated. Estimation of primary nutrients (Lipids, Crude fat, Carbohydrates, Proteins, fibres), vitamins (ascorbic acids and carotenoids) and antioxidants (Lycopene, anthocyanin and simple phenolics) was done. Minerals were estimated in terms of ash yield. Ash was analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively for its mineral constituents. Material was also screened for the presence of bioactive molecules to understand medicinal potential.

Keywords: Moringa oleifera, flower, nutritional, medicinal.
