If you know Carob, you'll love its protein-rich cousin, Mesquite. Mesquite is a hearty tree that survives in the driest climates, and its bean pods have been used as a power food for centuries by the desert-dwellers of South America.

Our sweet, low-glycemic Mesquite powder adds fiber, protein, and sweet caramel flavor to smoothies, desserts, and baking recipes. It's perfect for gluten-free flour mixes, and its sweet, earthy flavor blends well with cacao and maca drinks.

Mesquite contains calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc, and is also rich in the amino acid lysine. With 15% protein, it satisfies hunger, and its high fiber levels (30%) make Mesquite is a slow-acting carbohydrate meaning it absorbs into the blood slower than high-glycemic carbs, so it won't spike your blood sugar. It's also very low in fat only 3%. Mesquite also contains a host of phytochemicals and antioxidants, including Quercetin, which is being studied for a wide variety of health benefits, and Mesquite's high levels of lysine are a perfect balance to the higher arginine levels found in wheat, nuts, and cacao.

  • Gluten-free flour, perfect for baking (usually blended with other flours)
  • Adds thickness, nutrition, and unique sweet flavor to smoothies, desserts, soups and more
  • Sweet, earthy flavor, goes well with cacao, cinnamon, and a wide variety of fruits and nuts.
  • Sustainably grown by indigenous desert communities

5 of 5 Tastes great in smoothies! April 30, 2018
Reviewer: Kim from London, ON Canada  
I am not sure what other people use mesquite powder for, but I love it in smoothies. Blend 2 frozen bananas, 2 fresh ripe bananas, 1 tbsp of mesquite + water. Yum! It is hard to describe the flavor; sweet, caramel-ish, almost reminds me of malted milk.
