Supersized moringa leaf claims

A powdered/dried moringa leaf product makes nutrition claims for large amounts of protein, iron, fiber and antioxidants (“better than kale”)...


The claims apparently refer to data for a large portion of the fresh leaves, but the product is in dehydrated/powdered form, with 2 grams being the stated (and incorrect) serving size. That serving contains too little of any of these nutrients (as shown on the product Nutrition Facts) to be considered even a “good source” (10% of the Daily Value), and definitely not "loaded with," therefore the labeling (including website content/marketing) is false and noncompliant, not to mention a shot in the foot for using the wrong serving size. Additionally, there are health claims such as "anti-inflammatory," which is not allowed for foods, only for tested and approved drugs.
