Heritage of the African pharmacopoeia, the Moringa is nicknamed “the tree of miracles”. It is known for its exceptional nutritional qualities and its cosmetic properties in skin and hair care.
Moringa leaves are also used for their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. In the Sahel region, they are vegetables in their own right. One of the most miraculous features is its ability to clean and purify water.
Moringa is also called “Nebeday” in Wolof language, which means “Never die”. It can grow on both rich and poor soil, without being affected by drought.
When exposed to direct light, moringa cookies become more bitter as they are exposed to light. Hence the importance of keeping them away from light.
From its botanical name zingiber officinale, ginger (ginger in English) is now cultivated in almost all tropical areas of the world.

The 4 spices
From its botanical name Pimenta dioica, 4-spice is originally a unique spice, also called allspice. The pepper or allspice is native to the Caribbean, Central America and South America.
Its pleasantly pungent aroma evokes a mixture of pepper, cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg, spices found in many African dishes.
Generally, the term “4 spice” refers to a deliberate mixture of 4 different spices: ginger (or pepper), nutmeg, clove and cinnamon.
In traditional medicine, the infusion of the leaves of the all-spice would relieve the intestinal disorders and would facilitate the digestion.
These leaves are used in the Reunionese cooking, they scent pleasantly and delicately the sauces and the courses of broths.
