Reviewing the latest discoveries made through the collection, cultivation, production, processing, marketing, and commercialization of African botanicals, this compendium provides case studies on several new plants used as supplements and nutraceuticals. It provides a background in the botany and ecology of the indigenous plants in Africa and examines products such as plant-based butters and edible oils used in foods, cosmetics, and lubricants. It discusses gums and resins, aromatic plants as sources of essential oils, and the principles necessary for sustainable cultivation.
