The Sweet Tree
Mesquite (pronounced mess-keet), you’re sweet - this powder has a nutty, smoky and light caramel flavor that offers a low glycemic index compared to table sugar. This sweet tree is highly nutritious - it is rich in protein, fiber, essential amino acid lysine and minerals including calcium and iron. A powerful prebiotic, Mesquite aids in digestion and supports a healthy gut. The powder is a great compliment to cacao, maca and vanilla and can be added to sweet and savory foods for a boost in nutrition and flavor.
Our Mesquite is grown in the northern regions of Peru. The ripened mesquite pods are harvested, dried and gently milled at low temperatures to produce a fine and sweet powder.
