- Maringa Oleifera; Content Determination; Quality Characteristics
In order to provide a scientific basis for the development and utilization of Maringa, dry powder of Maringa leaves and seeds are used as raw materials, referring to the relevant methods in Chinese Pharmacopoeia (2015 edition) and literatures, the contents of moisture, ash and extracts of Maringa oleifera were determined. The results showed that the moisture content of Maringa leaves and of Maringa seeds were 4.19% and 3.47%, the water extracts were 36.28% and 19.19%, the alcohol extracts were 24.85% and 13.70%, the total ash were 11.04% and 3.57%, the acid insoluble ash were 2.18% and 0.30%. The content of total polysaccharides and total flavonoids of Maringa leaves were 11.14% and 3.7%, respectively. The content of oil of the Maringa seeds was 22.70%. The present study could provide experimental basis and help for evaluating the quality of Maringa, and developing related functional products
