2. Are moringa seeds edible?

Yes. Moringa seeds are edible.

They are usually eaten raw or roasted (when dried). The green immature seeds could be boiled or fried. Oil from the dried seeds is also edible and highly medicinal. When chewed, the dried seeds taste slightly bitter.

Few minutes after chewing the seeds, you get a sweet after taste in your throat. The sweet taste usually increases when you drink water immediately after chewing the seeds.
Caution: Do not chew more than two moringa seeds

               at a time; Eat maximum of  four seeds/day.
