Résumé

Morinda citrifolia est un arbuste des régions tropicales dont le fruit donne un jus comestible plus connu sous le nom de jus de noni. Autorisé dans la CEE depuis décembre 2002 comme nouvel ingrédient alimentaire, celui-ci a mauvaise presse dans les milieux scientifiques occidentaux car un trop grand nombre d’allégations santé nuit à sa crédibilité. De nouvelles recherches ont cependant mis en évidence des propriétés antioxydantes et immunostimulantes qui pourraient bien faire du jus de noni un véritable alicament.

Abstract

Morinda citrifolia is a bush from tropical regions whose fruit gives an edible juice more commonly known as noni juice. Since December 2002 the EU has authorized it as a new food, but the credibility of its healthy properties has been tainted by bad reviews within the field of western science. New research has however shown the antioxidant and immunostimulant properties that make noni juice a real alicament.
