Dauda Sa-Adu Abiola

This study was carried out to determine the moisture, protein and ash content in moringa oleifera seed. Due to time factor and the resources available these determinations were done using the proximate analysis. The method carried out in the lab during the analysis was ghaphmatic method. Nowadays moringa oleifera is mainly found in the middle east and in African and Asian countries but due to adaptability, it is spreading to other areas especially tropical and sub-tropical lands affected by drought. Research has shown that the seed contains 36.7 % of edible oil which is much healthier as compare to most oils in the market, high content of protein which can be used as a protein supplement to traditional diets. The seed also has high content of cysteine and methionine. The seed with other parts of the plant are used for medicinal purposes.
