Mesquite powder is derived from trees of the Prosipis genus, native to desert regions of North and South America. Though commonly known for its wood (often used to make charcoal), these trees produce seed pods that have been used as a food by indigenous peoples for thousands of years.
Mesquite pods have a rich, nutty, naturally sweet, caramel-like flavor. They are good source of protein and have been traditionally ground into flour and eaten as a sustenance food. Mesquite powder makes a great sweetener because of its low glycemic index and high soluble fiber content.
Try adding to smoothies, cereals, raw treats, or baked goods. Integrity Foods™ Mesquite powder is certified organic, vegan, kosher, and gluten-free.
