Moringa - Frequently Asked Questions
How many days' supply do I get in one tub?
- 200g Loose Powder Tub = 100 days at 2 grams a day (1 teaspoon a day)
- 120 capsules of Moringa Leaf Powder at 2 per day = 60 days (0.8 grams per day)
- 120 capsules of Moringa Leaf Powder at 4 per day = 30 days (1.6 grams per day)
- 120 capsules of Moringa Leaf Powder at 5 per day = 24 days (2 grams per day / teaspoon equivalent)
How do I consume Moringa powder?
You can add Moringa powder to your breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, or anything you like. You just need to sprinkle it on your food during or after cooking, unless it is cereal of course in which case you shouldn't cook it.
How many grams of Moringa powder can I take a day?
We recommend you do not exceed 2 teaspoons / 4g a day. Moringa powder is simply dried leaf powder, as with having too much fruit and veg you might find that your stomach does not agree with more than 4 grams a day.
Why is your Moringa more expensive than others I have seen online?
Cheap Moringa is compost! Read our "Cheap Moringa" page which gives the information you need to make the right choice. The general rule of thumb is: "If it smells like compost, it is compost". We only distribute the highest quality Moringa to fight malnutrition in Nicaragua, we have no time for cheap poor quality or GM Moringa.
Do you have a UK organic certificate?
Yes we are certified by Organic Farmers and Growers UK.
Do you have a phone number?
We do not currently have a phone number, due to the 'Social Enterprise' nature of our business, it is not cost effective to have a phone number, but we are happy to call you if you get in touch via our contact form.
Is Moringa a medicine?
No. Moringa is a tree and its goodness grows on trees. As a plant it is considered a superfood.
Is there any difference between the powder and the capsules?
There is no nutritional difference between the powder and the capsules, the Moringa is the same in both. We sell the capsules to make it easy to swallow for those who do not want to add Moringa to their food. It is also easy to regulate intake with capsules.
How many Moringa capsules can I take a day?
We recommend taking no more than 8 a day, we also recommend start by taking one or two a day for a few days for your body to adjust. Moringa powder is not a medicine, it is simply dried tree leafs, therefore there is no limit as such but just as if you were to eat too many oranges, you may suffer some stomach discomfort if you take too much.
Is Moringa a novel food?
Moringa is not a novel food in Europe.
The UK Food Standards Agency says: "The status of this product on the EC catalogue is currently uncertain. Our records indicate that Moringa leaves and pods are not a novel food. Moringa pods (known as ‘drumsticks’) are readily available in the UK and are consumed by the UK Asian population. The drumsticks are eaten cooked and the flesh and seeds (if they are soft) are scooped out and eaten, while the drumstick casing is discarded."
Can you supply in smaller packages?
We only sell Moringa Powder in 200g tubs and 120 x 400mg capsules because this works outs the most cost efficient for you. At 100g the cost of production is higher and as our Moringa has a naturally long shelf life (without the use of preservatives) there is no need to sell little and often. It works out better value for you to buy 200g in the long run then to buy a marginally cheaper 100g tubs, let alone the added shipping costs and impact on the environment.
Is Your Packaging Recyclable?
Yes our tubs are made from plastic PP5 which can be recycled as part of your normal household recycling. We also used where possible recycled paper and packaging for sending your goods. After all our teams have worked with families living off of rubbish dumps for years and it is not a pleasant site. We want to reuse as much as we can.
Why do you use tubs and not sachets?
Sachets are all the rage right now, we don't use them because they are handle to handle on a daily basis when measuring teaspoons from. They also have a tendency puff powder into the air as you open them. And as with many soft plastics and foil can leach chemicals into the product inside. Our rigid tubs are great for the shelf life of our Moringa Powder.
Where are you capsules encapsulated?
This takes place in the UK by an organic certified encapsulator.
Can you ship to my country?
The agreement with Jacobo is that we only sell in Europe. That's the continent and the European Union! We do not ship outside of Europe or the EU
Can I visit your farm?
We get asked this a lot! Yes you can but we would like it if you came with is on a quarterly Peace and Hope Trust Visit, please do get in touch and volunteer with us!
Can I Get Involved in the Work You Do?
We would love it if you came out to Nicaragua with our Peace and Hope Trust Team. We run medical trips in the winter and building projects in the spring and summer. Anyone from the age of 16 up is welcome. If you have a particular skill in medicine, engineering, construction, farming, counselling or even an interest in social science and policy we would always been keen to use your skills to help the work in Nicaragua.
Is you Moringa Free from fillers, gluten, wheat, lactose, added sugars, flavours and preservatives?
Why is your Moringa Oleifera "Premium"?
There is a lot of information on this site about how our Moringa is produced. We know we make the best Moringa on the market. We have tested the rest many don't have the same nutritional values as us. Find out more on our site but start here. We are not in the business of scare stories, you should be aware that you typically get what you pay for, and our strict controls means there is NOTHING but Moringa leaf matter in our Moringa and it is dried within 10 minutes of harvesting.
Who Certifies Moringa Harvest
Organic Growers and Farmers in the UK certify us for the whole of the European Union. Be careful of other people claiming to be organic, we recently found people selling on the internet using OUR certificate for their products. Cheeky!? Worse that's plain fraud so who knows what else they get up to!
Do You Sell Moringa Tea?
Not yet, as nice as it is, if you are looking for getting some nutrition out of Moringa Tea, your best to just to have the powder on its own. Nutritional values of any organic product start to break down at high temperatures.
Do You Sell Moringa Oil?
If you keep buying lots of powder from us, then one day we hope to bring in oil. So not yet.
Do you Sell Moringa Seeds?
No and there are restrictions about this.
