Raw Mesquite Powder has a sweet, rich, molasses-like flavor with a hint of caramel which blends well into smoothies or other drinks, especially those made with cacao and maca.

Mesquite meal is a traditional Native American food produced by gathering ripened seed-pods from the mesquite tree and grinding them into a fine powder. Used as a staple food for centuries by desert dwellers.

Serving suggestion:
Add a dessert spoonful to your favorite dessert or smoothie.


About mesquite and diabetes:
Researchers report that mesquite is highly effective in balancing blood sugar. The natural sweetness in the pods comes from fructose. Fructose does not require insulin to be metabolised -- making it safe for diabetics. The high rate of dietary fibre, pods are 25% fibre, causes the nutrients in mesquite to be absorbed slowly preventing the spikes and valleys in blood sugar.

With a low glycemic index of 25, mesquite requires a longer time to digest then many grains. The digestive time for mesquite is between 4 to 6 hours unlike wheat that digests in 1 to 2 hours. These factors result in a food that maintains a constant blood sugar for a sustained time and as a result prevents hunger.

Here is a food that supports the diabetic's diet and helps maintain a healthy insulin system in those not affected with blood sugar problem.
