Short communication: Proximate chemical and nutritional composition of Moringa oleifera, and Adansonia digitata leaves

Abdalbasit MARIOD [1]


This study was conducted in the powder leaves of Moringa oleifera, and Adansonia digitata. Samples were collected from different areas in Sudan. The leaves were washed, crushed, and analyzed for approximate chemical composition. M. oleifera contained the highest percentage of protein 28.3%, fat 8.0%, and fiber 18.5%, while A. digitata has the highest percentage of moisture 7.2%, and ash 16.0%. M. oleifera showed the highest percentage of minerals.
