As I studied more about Moringa seed, I learned that its valuable edible oil and this led me to start researching ways of extracting the oil. There are commercial chemical extractions, but these are too costly for the tribal people we work with. There are also cold and warm commercial presses, but these also are too costly for the people we work with. I read about boiled water extraction, and practiced some, with some success, but frankly it’s a lot of seed for only a little oil, and too easy to mess it all up and end up with nothing or little oil at best, not to mention the fuel expense in boiling the lot.
