    • More Info

      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.

    • Growing and 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.
