Mesquite – It’s Not Just for Grilling

This Sweet, Organic “Superfood” is High in Health-Boosting Fiber, Protein and Omega-3s

Mesquite Powder Adds Sweetness and Potent Nutritional Value to Snack Foods, Baked Goods, Smoothies and Sauces

When most people hear the word “mesquite,” they immediately think of the sweet, smoky taste of mesquite grilled meats or poultry – a process that utilizes the wood and bark from this thick, leafy tree. Often ignored, at least until recently, has been the sweet caramel-like tasting pods this tree produces. These nutrient-rich pods can boost both taste and nutritional value of a wide variety of foods because they are:  

  • High in Fiber
  • High in Protein
  • Packed with Omega-3 Fatty Acids
  • High in B Vitamins (B1, B2, and B3)
  • Loaded with Essential Mineral (Calcium, Potassium, Iron, Zinc and Magnesium)

Sweet Tasting, but Low on the Glycemic Index  

Mesquite Powder Promotes Heart Health, Blood Sugar Balance and Healthy Digestion

Burst to the right:  

  • Organic
  • Low Glycemic
  • Natural Sweetener

The uniquely potent combination of nutrients contained in 100% natural Mesquite powder helps promote a wide array of health benefits including:

Blood Sugar Balance: The caramel-like, slightly nutty taste of mesquite powder makes it a great natural sugar substitute for those that have blood sugar issues or for anyone who just wants to cut back on the amount of sugar in their diet. Because the sugar in mesquite comes from fructose and it has a glycemic index of only 25 (regular sugar is 60 and corn syrup is 90), it does not contribute to the blood sugar spikes that can occur with other popular sweeteners

Heart Health: It’s a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids which help lower harmful inflammation and promote cardiovascular health

Muscle and Bone Health: The high protein content of mesquite plus the rich array of essential minerals it contains promote muscle growth and repair as well as overall physical performance, while also supporting bone health

Digestive Health:  Mesquite powder is rich in soluble fiber which helps promote healthy bowel function, minimizing the build-up of toxic bacteria in the body while promoting better absorption of health-boosting vitamins and minerals.

The Health-Boosting Natural Sweetener from the Peruvian Desert

Mesquite trees thrive in the desert regional of northern Peru, and Peruvians have been using ground mesquite pods as a naturally sweet flour for centuries. Now that modern science has confirmed the nutritional potency of mesquite powder, the wide-ranging uses for this “superfood” ingredient are just catching on in popularity. This provides a great opportunity to include mesquite powder as a natural, nutrition-boosting sweetener in all sorts of tasty treats.
