What makes Mesquite such an amazing Superfood?
- The natural sweetness in the pods comes from fructose which doesn’t require insulin to be metabolised, making it safe for diabetics.
- Rich in dietary fibre, the nutrients in mesquite are absorbed slowly, effectively balancing blood sugar and preventing hunger.
- Mesquite is an excellent protein source at 17% protein, higher than nearly every grain and many nuts or seeds.
- The presence of L-Lysine supports the reduction of anxiety.
How to use Mesquite Powder:
Mesquite has a sweet, slightly nutty flavour, with a hint of molasses. It can be used as a natural and nutritious sweetener in recipes and is an excellent flavouring for raw chocolates and smoothies. It can also be used in baking or as a seasoning on food.
Our Mesquite Powder is a whole food that is sustainably grown and harvested in the high desert plains of northern Peru. The ripe pods are picked, low-temperature dried, and milled into a fine soluble powder.
100% Pure Mesquite Powder, contains no harmful toxins and is organic and RAW.
