Our Moringa powder is pure, organic and hand-processed. We take pride in it to know that each and every bottle or bag with our product that leaves Finca La Maya, is of the highest quality.
To make the Moringa ready to consume in form of powder, there is a lot of work to be done. It takes 7 pounds (seven!) of fresh Moringa leaves to make only 1 pound of powder.
Step 1: Growing plants
Our trees are grown using organic seeds from Moringa trees that have been grown
on our farm. No pesticides or chemicals of any kind are used on soil or plants.
Step 2: Harvesting leaves
Branches of Moringa leaves are removed from trees. Leaves are removed from branc
hes one-by-one, so that only the leaves are ready for drying.
Step 3: Drying leaves
Moringa leaves are placed on a dryer for dehydration.
Small fans circulate the air (115-120 F / 46 – 49 C) so that dehydration of leaves occurs evenly. Approximate time for drying of leaves is 16 hours (low
ydration helps maintain the nutritional integrity of plant contents).
Step 4: Grinding dried leaves
Dehydrated Moringa leaves are processed in a commercial grinder until a fine powder is achieved.
Step 5: Packaging dried powder
Dried powder is weighed and placed in special air-tight food quality plastic bags, or in vegetarian clear gel capsules, then sealed in plastic bottles.
