The objective of this work was to asses the nutritional value of Moringa spp. leaves from Sub-Saharan Africa countries, Zambia, Ghana and Senegal. Our data showed that moringa leaves, can be used as nutritional supplements for malnourished people, particularly children and pregnant/lactating women in Sub-Saharan Africa. These findings also confirm and further support the use of moringa leaves as a plant-based affordable mechanism that can provide significant source of elements, particularly calcium, potassium and iron, proteins, and antioxidants to the diet.
