Drumstick seed powder is an efficient and cheap water purifying agent that sediments most of the impurities in turbid water. It is ideal for treating river water before boiling it.
Drumstick leaves are edible as salad greens and vegetables. The root is a substitute for horseradish, and the long pods are used in soups, curries, sambhar and pickles. The seed oil is clear, odourless and durable; it burns without smoke and it is used as edible oil and in the perfume industry. Gum found in the bark, and the leaf powder are spices. The flowers are edible when mixed with other foods or fried in butter.
Hundred gm of drumstick pods contain less than 50 calories, most of it as carbohydrate. The pods are rich in iron, vitamin c, beta-carotene, copper and iodine. The fresh leaves contain twice as many calories, and they are also rich in iron, manganese, zinc, copper, b vitamins, vitamin c and calcium. The leaves also contain two chemicals with potential anti-cancer effects. The seed oil does not turn rancid, but it is not healthful because it is full of saturated fatty acids that are bad for the heart and blood vessels.
