Abstract
Moringa (Moringa oleifera Lam.) is a highly valued plant that is mostly cultivated in the tropics and subtropics. It is used for food, medication and industrial purposes. This study was directed at determining the nutritional value of the leaves and herbal tea from M. oleifera tree cultivated for the first time in Greece (and in Europe, to the best of our knowledge). Considering both protein content and the essential amino acid patterns, the leaves can be considered as a good source of protein and essential amino acids. Also, leaves are rich in biologically active compounds such as carotenoids, vitamin C and vitamin E (especially α-tocopherol). They were also rich in minerals and ω-3 fatty acids. The herbal tea showed a high content in phenols and flavonols and high antioxidant activity.
