Our Moringa Spice Powder has seen a great response from you all and we thank you for the constant love and support. We have compiled all the information about Moringa here, including the ways to use our Sātmya jars.
How do we make our farm-based, small batches of Moringa?
Like all Sātmya offerings, we shade-dry moringa leaves that are grown on our farm. To this, we add Ceylon cinnamon, lakadong turmeric, and hand-pound digestive kitchen spices such as fennel, coriander seeds, and cloves to make this spice mix delicious and mask the bitter taste of moringa.
Moringa is also known as the "drumstick tree" or "horseradish tree”. The plant is native to South Asia and India and its medicinal properties and health benefits make it a popular choice for traditional medicine.
