What is mesquite? This mineral-rich superfood is actually the ground bean pods of the mesquite tree. Grown across North America, the tree has been used for centuries for a wide range of purposes. Mesquite powder contains essential minerals including calcium, magnesium, iron, and zinc. It’s also high in fibre and considered a source of protein helping to make mesquite powder low GI. Meaning it won’t spike your blood sugar! It’s lower in carbohydrate than other similar superfoods too, and with a taste resembling a nutty caramel, it’s quite an irresistible addition.
How to use mesquite powder? Enjoy a little mesquite with breakfast, blend into your favourite smoothie, mix into homemade ice cream, or add into cakes, cookies and other baked goods. It makes a great gluten-free flour replacement!
