Davao Philippines’Cavendish Bananas is known deliciously sweet.

  • Philippine is now the 2nd Largest Exporter of Bananas in the world.
  • The majority of these shipments are destined for the growing regional markets of China, the Middle East and, to a lesser extent, Russia to satisfy their demand for fresh produce
  • Exports of Philippine bananas for the last quarter of this year are expected to rise following China’s lifting of restrictions on Philippine exports early this month.
  • Below are the 15 countries that accounted for the highest dollar value worth of bananas exported from the Philippines during 2015:
  1. Japan: US$176.9 million (40.2% of total bananas imports)
  2. China: $109.2 million (24.8%)
  3. South Korea: $51.6 million (11.7%)
  4. Iran: $33.8 million (7.7%)
  5. United Arab Emirates: $19.2 million (4.4%)
  6. Saudi Arabia: $12.9 million (2.9%)
  7. Kuwait: $8.7 million (2%)
  8. New Zealand: $6.5 million (1.5%)
  9. Hong Kong: $5.2 million (1.2%)
  10. Singapore: $5.1 million (1.2%)
  11. Malaysia: $2.3 million (0.5%)
  12. Taiwan: $2.1 million (0.5%)
  13. North Korea: $1.7 million (0.4%)
  14. Bahrain: $1.1 million (0.2%)
  15. Qatar: $912,000 (0.2%)
  • Among the above countries, the fastest-growing consumers of Philippine bananas exports since 2011 were: Bahrain (up 822.2% in value), Saudi Arabia (up 638.1%), Malaysia (up 312.3%) and Kuwait (up 195.4%).Production system ranges from backyard to highly integrated operation with the latter catering to the export market.
  • Weak demand in the EU.
  • Total import of fruit by the Philippines from 2008 till 2013. The highest volume of imports occurred in 2012 reaching 240,477MT while the lowest was in 2008 to 187,265MT. The average annual growth rate was 3.68% during this time period.
  • Philippine farms produced a total of 8.65m tonnes of bananas valued at P117.15bn ($2.6bn) in 2013, down from a peak of 9.23m tonnes worth P108.13bn ($2.4bn) the previous year, according to PSA data. Concerted efforts over the past two decades to expand banana production have led to the commodity becoming the country’s most valuable crop as well as its most profitable agricultural export.
  • The past years, the yield dramatically been reduced due to destruction brought about by the strong typhoons that hit the country particularly the major producing areas in Mindanao. Another calamity was the most recent “El Nino.”  Nevertheless, these are not typical and Mindanao is not a typhoon belt.
  • Overall, the average annual growth rate was 0.26% and 16%, respectively for production and area for the six-year time period.
  • The farms are generally small in size (1-5 ha) with minimal care resulting to low yield.
  • Big farms are typically managed by Cooperatives, Organizations and Investment Companies

America gives back

The fund raising drive resulted to an overwhelming text-message donations for American Red Cross for the earthquake victims of Haiti.  Even the atlethes and the first lady joined in the campaign. 

As report, the organization had collected pledges of $103 million, about $22 million of which came through the text-messaging program (as of late Sunday). The National Football League’s promotion of text-message donations during its weekend playoff games produced stunning results, with money “coming in at the rate of $500,000 an hour,” said Roger Lowe, a Red Cross spokesman.

Moringa Oil as Biofuel is better than Jatropha

Jatropha was the toast in biofuel oil industry until moringa was discovered as better source.  No offense to propagators of jatropha but this is now the reality. This ain’t rocket science to figure it out.  All you need to do is read articles, books and video presentation related to moringa and jatropha.  In comparisson, Jatropha has a poisonous part to be left when you get the oil. It’s like a nuclear waste, where will you dispose the waste?”   As to Moringa (Malunggay), all the parts of the tree are useful and highly benefitial with income potential. The most beneficial part of malunggay is nutrition. And as to my research, moringa could prove to be better in terms of maximizing what we can get out of the plant. This is shown by the number of medicinal benefits and uses that Moringa has over jatropha. 

Recent Development on Demands

The discovery resulted to a growing demand for Moringa oil or oil extracted from the seed of the moringa (malunggay) tree in the US for use as biodiesel.  Europe also starts to source out.   One company to require is North American Biofuels Inc.  Since January of 2008, they started to tap moringa oil for its biodiesel needs.  But there are others who joined the trend (both big and small business players in the import-export sector, farming, cooperatives and processing plant).  There were reports that there will be giant moringa processing plant to be established in Mindanao and Visayas Philippines (American Company).  On around 2009, there were about more or less 200 biodiesel marketing companies that use soybean oil as biofuel in the US alone. In the next 50 years, it was estimated that Japan and Korea will be the largest markets for Moringa oil as biodiesel.  

On around 2008, a number of MIT graduate students from USA studied the potentials of moringa tree directly in the Philippines.  They made a remarkable discovery.  Their study in PowerPoint format is available for free in the internet.  See below outline: 

Moringa Oil processed as biodiesel has the following properties:

  1. Iodine number better than that of regular diesel, indicating fuel stability.
  2. A cetane number indicating good ignition behavior.
  3. A cold filter plugging point indicating suitability even in winter.  

Income Projection for Farmers:

For a 10-ha moringa farm, a farmer could earn Php2 million during the first year (equivalent to around US$43,478), Php3 million in the next three years (equivalent to around US$65,217), and Php4 million in the next four years (equivalent to around US$86,956). In addition, the meal, or sapal, of malunggay seeds may be used as livestock feed (all parts has its use and income potential). 

Other Nutritional Benefits:

  • Benefitial to mothers in need to breast feed their baby.  The moringa leaves were found with lactating capability for mothers as a supplement to induce increased milk production.  Traditionally, leaves are prepared as a soup or mixed in other food for the benefit of either the mother or the child.  Proven as cheapest way to control malnutrition and hunger among poor families.  Already been introduced in Africa and was proven very effectve.
  • Moringa can also be used to increase sperm production in infertile men.
  • Erosion control and benefits the global warming campaig.
  • Roots can be used to treat snake bites.  

According to a Philippine Bureau of Plant Industry study:

  • (Moringa) has seven times the vitamin C in oranges
  • Four times the calcium in milk
  • Four times the vitamin A in carrots
  • Twice the protein in milk
  • Three times the potassium in bananas

Malungai/Malunggay is planted throughout the Philippines in settled areas at low and medium altitudes… The plant is a small tree, 8 meters or less in height, with corky bark and soft, white wood. The leaves are alternate, usually thrice pinnate, and 25 to 50 centimeters long. There are three to nine leaflets on the ultimate pinnules. These leaflets are thin, ovate to elliptic and 1 to 2 centimeters long. The flowers are white and 1.5 to 2 centimeters long, on spreading panicles. The pod is 15 to 30 centimeters long, pendulous, three-angled and nine ribbed. The seeds are three-angled, and winged on the angles.

I can help Haiti through Moringa

I know I can do something…

The effects of the earthquake is undescribable.  But there is hope and there are cheaper ways to control hunger and other basic needs, yet eco friendly and practical.  As there are so many casualties, the basic needs is what I intend to offer, if I be given the support/partnership by NGO and funding institution.   Moringa has already proven its worth and effectiveness in Africa and Asia and India, rest assured that it will help control hunger and malnutirition in Haiti.  I can create jobs as well… opportunities can be found on below link:

https://fyi09.wordpress.com/2010/01/15/moringa-oil-as-biofuel-is-better-than-jatropha/ 

I can facilitate both the export of moringa products, primarily for hunger/malnutrition control.  It can also be of use to for the following:

– water purification

– healthy food option 

– alternative source of fuel (biofuel/biogas – moringa oil).   

“Moringa” or “Malunggay” as popularly known in the Philippines is something to consider in times as these in Haiti.  It will be for necessity and longterm benefit and has proven capacity to control hunger, malnutrition, medicinal/suppliment-vitamin, alternative fuel/oil (biogas), with purification substance for water, better raw materials for cosmetics, animal feeds, etc.   Please click below link for my detailed explanation:

Moringa Facts and Benefits

Basically, you can do a lot with moringa leaves.  What makes it special is its better nutritional value as it is found to have 26% “crude protein” and rich in Bitamina A, C, iron and potasyum compared to its counterpart organic raw materials or products.  It ain’t rocket science to figure it out.  Practically, you can do it in the convenience of your kitchen or home, or establish a small business through it.  Here are some of its benefits: 

  • Can be mix with other vegetable as egg plant, ampalaya, squash and related with sauteed with fish or pork.  In the Philippines, we call these recipe as “pakbet,” “diningding,” and “bulanglang.” (Actually, there are lots of recipe using moringa leaves and you can experiment yourself if you want)

  • Can also be mix with meat as chicken, beef or pork with cut into big cubes green papaya.  We call this recipe as, “tinola.”  This is a type of soup dish.
  • Aside from the fresh leaves and young pods, other parts of moringa are useful as a human food.  The dried leaves can be crushed or pounded (and be filtered to remove leaf stems) and then be added to sauces at the same time as other condiments or vegetables are added. 
  • Practically, you can also use the flowers in various cooking recipe or just placed in hot water for 5 minutes to make a natural tea.
  • The pods can be harvested for their seeds/peas, which can be used as any other green pea, from the time they appear until they turn yellow and their shells begin to harden. After removing the seeds/peas and white flesh from the pod, put them into a strainer and wash them. They may also be boiled for a few minutes; then, drained and boiled again in fresh water.
  • The roots of the 60cm tall-seedling can be made into a sauce. The root is ground up after the root bark is completely removed (as it contains harmful substances). After adding vinegar and salt, the sauce is ready to serve; however, it should not be eaten in excess.  It is best stored in refrigerator.
  • Dried moringa leaves in rough powder form can be mix in bread or baked products for added nutritional value and unique selling proposition.
  • Dried moringa leaves can also be turn into moringa tea or coffee mix
  • Powderized form or factory processed leaves can also be used as industrieal ingredients for animal feeds, cosmetics addetives, food for human consumption, etc.
  • Moringa granules for cooking and food processing helps
  • Moringa Juice
  • Moringa oil
  • We intend to develop a vegimeat (meat alike that taste and looks like cut or cube pork but actually it’s a vegetable made of processed moringa). 
  • We also intend to develop commercial food and drinks alike for craving customers and healthy options. We still need investors for this project.  Just immagine a cola soft drinks, chocolate bars, tooth paste, cooking oil, food snack, cereal and cosmetics that looks very much like the known brand yet in reality a healthy option made of processed moringa.
  • There’s more.

 Moringa as vitamin and medicine

  • Moringa can be turned into a vitamin capsule as it helps immensely in raising semen count for men
  • Moringa help various ailments and intoxicate human or animal body.  Some of the remedies are described below.  However, there is no guarantee that they will work for every case.

– Headaches = rub leaves against the temple

– Bleeding from a shallow cut, wounds and insect bites = dress the wounded part with fresh leaves

– Bacterial or fungal skin complaints = apply affected areas with leaves extracts

– Gastric ulcers and diarrhea = drink leaf tea

– Malnutrition = eat Malunggay products

– Breast feeding = drink flower juice to improve the quality and flow of mother’s milk

–  Urinary problems = drink flower juice

–  Worm, liver and spleen problems and joint pains = eat raw pods

–  Arthritis, rheumatism, gout, cramp, STD, urinary problems, epilepsy, and boils = apply either roasted and pounded seeds mixed with coconut oil to problem area or seed oil

–  The roots and the bark can also resolve the above ailments but are more concentrated.  Hence, much care is need if they are to be used as medicines.

Natural Pesticide

Aside from utilizing the seed-cake as fertilizer, Malunggay leaves can be dug into the soil before planting to prevent the damping off disease (Pythium debaryanum) among the seedlings.

Domestic Cleaning Agent

Crushed leaves can be used to clean cooking utensils or even walls.

Water Purifier

Using Malunggay to purify water replaces chemicals such as aluminum sulphate which are aside from being expensive are also dangerous to people and environment. Seed powder can be used as a quick and simple method for cleaning dirty water and can

remove 90-99% of bacteria contained in water. 20 litres of water can be treated in the following way:

  1. Remove the wings and brown seed coat.  Discard any seed kernels that have dark spots or any other signs of damage.
  2. Pound the kernels to a fine powder.
  3. Add 2 grams (2 small spoons) of powder to 1 cup of clean water.  Pour into a bottle and shake for 5 minutes.
  4. Filter the solution through a clean cloth into the bucket of dirty water that is to be treated.
  5. Stir the water quickly for 2 minutes and slowly for 10 to 15 minutes.  Do not use metal implements.
  6. Leave the bucket undisturbed for one hour or until the water becomes clear and the impurities have sunk to the bottom.
  7. Filter the water through a clean cloth.
  8. Boil the water before drinking.

Water from varying sources will need different amounts of powder because of the impurities present will not be the same.  Both the seeds and the seed powder can be stored but the solution made in stage 3 should not be stored. It should be freshly made every time water is to be purified.

Moringa Oil

The mature seeds can be pressed for oil extraction. If a press is not available, the seeds can be browned or roasted, ground, and added to boiling water. Oil is then separated when it floats to the surface. The seed-cake left from the extraction can still be used for water treatment.

Animal Fodder 

Cattle, sheep, pigs, goats and poultry browse the bark, leaves, and young shoots of Malunggay. The best diet for pigs is 70% Malunggay, 10% Leucaena, and 20% other leaves. If trees are intended for animal fodder, it is useful to prune them to 4m high; otherwise, they should be pruned to 6m so harvesting for human consumption can be easily carried out.

 

 

The science behind moringa

Excerpt article by By Chris Maughan 
http://www.newtimes.co.rw/index.php?issue=1367&article=2681

They’re calling it a miracle tree. Moringa is all the agricultural rage in Rwanda now that the government has funded the planting of 400,000 trees in cooperation with the World Food Programme. The recent joint initiative comes on the heels of several investments in Moringa by many of Rwanda’s African neighbours.

The plant is said to be an incredible source of energy, excellent feed for livestock, a powerful antibiotic, and a miracle medical cure. It almost seems too good to be true.  Indeed, there are researchers who have said that some of the incredible claims as to moringa’s health benefits warrant further study.

“There has been a lot of hype on moringa,” says John Kendall, a Canadian researcher studying the plant’s ecological potential.

While there is not sufficient evidence to back up every single claim that’s been made about the plant, many of them are supported by research that points to a science of moringa that’s tried and true.

Juvenal Kanani, deputy dean of agriculture at the National University of Rwanda, says that moringa’s potential as a source of food is largely related to its high concentrations of nitrogen.

“It’s an element that constitutes muscle tissue… and it’s also an element that helps with protein synthesis,” he says, explaining that nitrogen-rich food has an even greater impact on the health of livestock.

“For monogastric animals like humans, nitrogen is very important; but ruminants like cows, sheep, and goats, can use nitrogen even more.” Kanani also points to concentrations of carotene to explain moringa’s reputation for having great nutritional value.

“When you analyse it for vitamins, you can find signs [that it contains much] carotene,” he says. Carotene was proven to ward off cognitive decline in a study at Harvard Medical School last year. Kanani says it also helps the body synthesize vitamin A, which is essential in maintaining ocular health and a strong immune system.

In a recent report from The Philippines’ Bureau of Plant Industry (BPI), researchers claim that moringa leaves contain four times the amount of vitamin A found in a carrot.  But the scientific support for moringa’s nutritional benefits doesn’t end there. Kanani says the plant also contains a lot of calcium and phosphorous.

“Calcium is very important because it constitutes what’s in our bones. The more calcium you have, the more you are protecting your bones.” Kanani adds that breastfeeding mothers who ingest moringa have even been found to produce better quality milk as a result of increased calcium in their diet. The BPI report found that moringa leaves contain the calcium equivalent of four glasses of milk.

Phosphorous, meanwhile, helps the body process calcium more efficiently.
“When phosphorous [levels] are not high enough, animals can not [process] calcium very well,” says Kanani.

Moreover, phosphorous deficiencies can be dangerous and are commonly seen in malnourished patients. They can cause muscle-growth problems and low white blood cell counts that leave people physically weak and unable to recover from illnesses.

Not only does moringa help strengthen the immune system, it also can act to prevent illness. A 2004 report from Switzerland’s University of Lausanne found an as-yet undiscovered chain of amino acids in moringa seeds that suggest the plant has antibiotic properties in addition to health benefits. Researchers placed the amino acids in isolation with e. coli bacteria and watched as they killed off bacteria cells.

“Moringa seed kernels, pounded into a powder, can be mixed with even very turbid water and, after stirring it for ten minutes, all the particles in the water will coagulate, binding together, and sink to the bottom,” explains Lowell Fuglie, an American moringa expert working with the Global Initiative for the Advancement of Nutritional Therapy.
“Since the bacteria in the water is attached to the particles, the result is clear water up to 98% free of bacteria.”

Fuglie says there may even be a scientific basis to recent claims that it can help patients living with HIV. Some researchers have written this off as rumour, but Fuglie suggests they may have dismissed the idea too quickly. He says there’s a lot of research yet to be done.

“The high selenium content in moringa leaves is a subject demanding research, as selenium seems to have a very significant impact on reducing the effects,” he says. 

“Studies have shown that HIV patients given moringa leaf powder every day did enjoy greater appetites and weight gain.”

Greener Pasteur

If Middle East has black gold, Philippines has untapped “green gold.” It can be found in almost any backyard and places in the Philippines. It is called “Moringa”  (popularly known as “malunggay” in the Philippines and “moringa oleifera” to many parts of the world).   It’s just one of Philippines rich natural resources but requires foreign investment and futher research to untapped its hidden potentials. 

Moringa is being called a “mirracle tree” due to its rich nutritional value. 

Further more, its other tree parts has its usage highly demanded in the organic and biofuel market: 

Pods

  • Human Food
  • Medicine

 Seeds

  • Edible Oil
  • Cosmetics and Skin care raw materials
  • Perfume
  • Oil lubricants
  • Water purifier
  • Animal Feeds
  • Fertilizer

Philippines is actually one of the Pioneers of moringa processing.  Secura, a local biotech company, has pioneered in the extraction of oil from the seed of moringa.

The MIT team of ‘business experts’ validated the claim that malunggay oil has the potential of being a major source of biofuel, next to coconut.  A sudy shows that the massive cultivation of massive cultivation of Moringa can produce massive amounts of oil than jatropa and can boost the supply of raw materials needed to produce the amount biofuel needed.  The seed of malunggay is 36 percent oil.  In addition, moringa was also found low in transfatty acid which makes it a better ingredient of personal health care products, alternative cooking oil and fuel oil like what is found in coconuts.

With the fluorishing potentials in moringa trade, further study is needed for its product development and competitiveness to pass global quality standard requirement as what the European and U.S. is doing to vegetable oil.  This is how our desired firm will enter if given the right support and funding by an international investor or funding institutions.  We intend to utilize both foreign and local scientist in collaboration with organic NGO’s.

Just recently, the DA-CARAGA Region has adopted moringa as the chief crop for its “One house, One vegetable” program.  In Manila, the DA-BPO launched its urban farming program dubbed “Malunggay in the City” which encourages the massive planting of malunggay in the backyards of the metropolis. The local biotech company said it is willing to buy malunggay seeds for the production of Moringa oil, requiring at least 500,000 hectares of agricultural land planted to malunggay (excerpt information)

Wealth behind Moringa Tree

If you can read between the lines, you will notice that 2010 and beyond is really the Asian Century.   It’s not a coincidence that the tallest building is now in Dubai, earlier in Taiwan and Malaysia.  Same with Manny Pacquiao and other Asian competitor, they seem to open the curtain for Asia to be recognized again.  

If you are that observant, many industrialized countries these days are silently buying vast agricultural lands in many parts of South East Asia like the Philippines.  I my self could not believe how large from the farm land areas and properties are already in the hands of foreigners from USA, Europe and the Middle East.  The threat of global warming is eminent and it will surely affect global food supply.  This is the obvious reason why they are preparing.  And if you are into investing, you should now consider agriculture before others overtake you.   If you are that observant, global trade is now pointing to organic and people are getting concious of the products they buy especially on food.  Even Coca Cola and Pepsi and large food multinationals are already investing on agricultural products as coconut, etc.  

If you already heard, Moringa is now being eyed by many as one of the best source of organic products from alternative fuel (biofuel), organic food products (both for human and animal consumption), cosmetics ingredients, best for malnutrition control, etc.  Scientist is calling it, the wonder tree.  Come to think of it, moring (or “malungay” in the Philippines) is easily grown in the Philippines and can be planted almost anywhere and by anyone.  Many do not know it yet but moringa is anticipatedly be indemand in the next couple of months and years, per study made by American scientist.  They made a conclusion that moringa is better than jatropa and other organic raw materials. Proof of its worth is the two big moringa processing plants being established by American and Europeans somewehre in Mindanao and the Visayas (Part of Philippines).   More of its benefits via youtube link below:

 

The demands of moringa are getting bigger and bigger every day.  But I noticed the need for product development is somehow lacking.  In this regard, I conceptualized a business plan that is focus on moringa research and development, in collaboration with a contact college dean and consultants.   I believe that this facility is necessary to further develop products being sought both in the global market.  My inspiration is the International Rice Research Institute which is also located in the Philippines.  With my involvement and desire to continually serve the poor and my being involve with various NGO (Sight and Life Switzerland, World Bank, etc.), I was able to develop a credible business plan proposal.  If the facility is to be funded and be established, hunger control programs by various global NGO will be supported on a cost-effective manner. 

Hope Sight and Life Switzerland and/or United Nations and and the like will notice or support us.  I am very much willing to be in partnership with them on their advocacies.
