It was January 2014 when my group mates and I decided to do our 1st experiment which was Jackfruit sap as an alternative glue. Then, we tried to buy a jackfruit in the market but we found it very expensive but luckily, one of us has a jackfruit tree planted in the backyard so we took one and got its sap. Unfortunately, we only got a spoonful of sap in that fruit. It was so sticky and was very hard to get. So, we decided to change it for we are not really curious ...view middle of the document...
Then, I found it very interesting. So the next day, I told it to my group mates and also became curious about it.
So now, we would like to introduce to you the very nutritious and delicious food made by one of the most recommended food of the FNRI (Food and Nutrition Research Institute), the Moringa Oleifera Balls or simply Malunggay Balls.
