Mesquite Meal, 6oz, Live Live & Organic
Our organic mesquite flour is a nutritious powder with a sweet, nutty flavor, suitable for use in baking or as a seasoning on food and in drinks. The flour is ground from the seed pods of the mesquite plant, also known as algorroba, a leguminous plant found in arid areas around the world.
In desert areas of the Americas, mesquite seed pods have long been used as a food source by the indigenous peoples. Today, mesquite powder is proving to be a versatile food with a high nutritional and flavor value. Because mesquite flour is ground from the entire pod, including the seed, it is high in protein (11-17%). It is also rich in lysine, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc, and dietary fiber. Mesquite is also highly effective in balancing blood sugar.
