There multiple methods used in drying process of moringa leaves so that it could be extracted in the powdered form. However, two methods that are generally used are natural shadowed drying process and another is solar drying process.
Shadowed drying Process – In natural shadowed drying process, leaves are kept under the sunlight not direct though, leaves are being covered by a layer of cloth or something that protects the direct sunlight hit to the leaves. But leaves kept in open for drying is not considered good as it is highly likely that other contaminants like pesticides, chemical or toxic substances may get in touch with Moringa leaves thus reducing the nutritional value of the leaves which has no market value.
Solar drying method – In solar drying process, leaves are kept in the box, or a container which is insulated by solar heater, this form of heating is considered as the best since moringa leaves maintain the best of the nutritional value of the leaves. This method of of drying is also best because it has been accepted by various scientist and WHO as well.
Apart from the above, there have been other methods like, microwave and other forma of radiations which is not good at all as it turns the color of the leaves to brown thereby destroying the vitamins and the nutrition of the leaves.
