Our Certified Organic Raw Mesquite Powder (Flour) comes from the beautiful, mineral rich forests of Argentina. To produce this healthy whole food powder, ripe Mesquite pods are hand-picked, rinsed thoroughly and naturally shade dried. A special grinder is then used to crush both the pod and the seeds of the mesquite into ultra-fine powder. Mesquite powder has a mild, sweet, nutty, molasses-like flavor with a touch of caramel and a hint of chocolate. If you like carob, try mesquite!
Mesquite contains rich quantities of calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc and is an excellent source of the amino acid lysine. It is also high in dietary fiber and protein (about 17% by weight). Mesquite is a true superfood that satisfies hunger and stabilizes blood sugar levels. The soluble fiber and galactomannin gum in the seeds and pods slow the absorption of nutrients, resulting in a flattened blood sugar curve. The gel-forming fiber allows foods to be slowly digested and absorbed over a four to six hour period, in contrast to wheat flour, corn meal and other common cooking staples which are rapidly digested and consequently lead to a spike in blood sugar.
Mesquite is the perfect ingredient for diabetics, weight watchers or anyone who wants to eat healthier. Do you drink smoothies or meal replacement drinks for breakfast and find you are hungry long before lunch? Add Mesquite Powder to them to stave off hunger for hours
