Making malunggay more delicious
Simple processing of Malunggay fresh leaves into leaf
powder for human food

The air-dried leaves can be crushed or pounded using a


crusher like mortar and pestle and filtered to remove leaf stems.
The powder is then added to:
soups and sauces
breads
biscuits
burgers
hotdogs
tea bags and other functional drinks
instant noodles

For a ‘healthy’ animal feedstock

Malunggay fresh leaves is excellent to be fed


to pigs, goats, and poultry

The best diet for pigs is 70% Moringa, 10%


Leucaena and 20% other leaves. 100%
Moringa diet is possible for pigs but Leucaena
should not be more than 30%.

malunggay?

HOW?
BIOTECHNOLOGY!
Processing Malunggay through
Biotechnology
A very innovative company – SECURA
INTERNATIONAL INC., has been able
to produce pure all-purpose oil, active
pharmaceutical ingredients and active
compound for water treatment from
malunggay using biotechnology that is
willing to buy malunggay seeds directly
from the farmers.
