Product Description

Mesquite Powder - Raw Organic

Raw Organic Mesquite Powder from Peru. Traditional Native American food with a very low GI and a high mineral content.

What is it?

Used as a staple food for centuries by desert dwellers, this high protein meal contains good quantities of calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc, and is rich in the amino acid lysine as well. Its low GI of 25 helps maintain stable blood sugar levels.

Mesquite flour not only stabilises blood sugar but it also tastes great: sweet with a slightly nutty wild flavour and a hint of caramel. It blends well into smoothies or other drinks, especially those made with Cacao and Maca.

How to use

Sweet and caramel-like, Mesquite makes a great addition to cakes, ice cream and lots of other desserts. It's also fantastic sprinkled on your favourite breakfast cereal, or used in smoothies to give a certain depth and roundness of flavour.

Ingredients

Organic Mesquite Powder

Health Benefits

Mesquite was traditionally consumed as a staple food. It has an incredibly low GI and a high mineral content, and the reason why the GI is so low is partly because of that very high mineral content.

Our mesquite is comprised 100% of whole ground pods. It has a high level of dietary fibre, meaning it's difficult for the body to break down and digest. This is a good thing, and another reason why it has such a low GI rating: it takes a long time for the body to process it, giving you a long-lasting energy boost and reducing hunger for a sustained period.

Mesquite is high in protein (16%) and contains significant quantities of calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc. It's low in carbohydrate, low in fat and rich in the amino acid lysine.

Processing

Mesquite meal is a traditional Native American food produced by gathering ripened seed-pods from the mesquite tree (a relative of the Acacias) and grinding them into a fine powder.
