The 232nd American Chemical Society National Meeting, San Francisco, CA. September 10-14, 2006.
Evaluation of the allergenic potential of Morinda citrifolia L. leaf proteins, AGFD 158.
Brett J West and Afa Palu.
Analysis of proteins from noni leaves reveals that they are easily digested by pepsin, a digestive enzyme in the stomach that breaks down proteins. A characteristic of non-allergen food proteins is that they are readily digested by pepsin. This provides further evidence for the safe use of noni leaves as food.
