Description Ingredients
Our mesquite powder is wildcrafted from the 'velvet' variety of mesquite beans from the pristine wilderness of the Patagonia mountains in southern Arizona. They are hand harvested and hammer milled at low temperatures (under 115ºF) for a delicious flavor and optimal nutrition. This mesquite flour is made from the seedpods of the mesquite tree. Ground mesquite powder taste like an aromatic blend of cinnamon, chocolate, and coffee. For 2000 years, mesquite flour was a staple food of Native Americans from Texas to California, because mesquite trees thrive in arid climates where other crops wither. Mesquite pods were one of the most significant foods of the desert Apache, Pima, Cahuilla, Maricopa, Yuma, Mohave, and Hopi tribes. Like many other desert plants, the mesquite tree super concentrates nutrients in its seeds to compensate for the harsh environment. Consequently, it is so nutritious and mineral-rich that many consider it a superfood. Mesquite powder is very high in magnesium, potassium, iron, calcium, zinc, fiber, and digestible proteins (including lysine). It also acts as an antioxidant, and its glycemic index is low in spite of its sweet taste. It can be used as either a gluten-free flour or a superfood seasoning. The trees have small green leaves and yellow hanging seedpods. Mesquite flour is made by washing the pods with water, sorting them for quality, milling and sieving the pods to isolate the most flavorful portion of the pods in the same fashion that Indians did for centuries using stone mortars. The mesquite flour has a distinctive rich flavor similar to mocha coffee, cinnamon and chocolate.

I bought this to use for a recipe that Brandi at theVegan8 blog was testing out, and this is one that I will continue to purchase. My husband is Type 2 diabetic so I was happy to have found out about this little gem. Thanks so much!

Review from a new customer May 27, 2014
Reviewer: Hotch from , Georgia  
I actually have not tried this yet as I'm using fruits as sweeteners, and I am sure this will be as great as the other 4 in my recent purchase.  I look forward to using this in my own raw nut butters for that smokiness that is great in vegetable dishes !!!
