Native Americans of the Southwest ate the pods of the mesquite tree as a staple… today, they’re a superfood! A two-tablespoon serving of mesquite powder is jam-packed with 4 grams of protein, 25% of your daily vitamin C, and 8% of your daily calcium and iron. It’s also a good source of zinc, calcium, potassium, and magnesium and boasts three times the fiber content of whole-wheat flour, so our bodies digest it slowly and we stay full and satisfied. Best of all, it adds natural sweetness without causing blood sugar spikes.
It’s versatile, too. Mesquite powder’s mild, nutty caramel flavor enhances both raw and cooked dishes. Use it as a gluten-free flour in cakes and cookies, stir it into your next batch of raw energy bars or granola, or simply sweeten your tea with a spoonful. Sweet, nutrient-dense, organic, and gluten-free: you can’t go wrong!
FUN FACT! Livestock producers used to consider the desert-hardy mesquite tree a weed, but now they’re thinking twice: the spread of mesquite slows desertification and fortifies poor soil.
