Mesquite Powder — More Useful than you Think

Many people associate mesquite with barbecues because it’s commonly added to sauces and the wood from mesquite trees is often used to add a sweet flavour to meat from the smoke it produces. However, it has many more uses than that, including as a natural and healthy sweetener for other food and drink.

Mesquite trees are native to South America, where the wood was used to build boats and the south-west of the United States where Native Americans used the ground pods as a sweetener and for flour. The trees thrive anywhere that’s hot and dry, also being found here in Australia as well as in dry regions of Africa and Asia.

Where to Buy Mesquite Powder and its Benefits

Mesquite comes in three varieties, with flavours ranging from smokey to sweet and the sweeter types most commonly being used as health supplements. They’re produced from the pods of the mesquite tree, the beans inside being ground to make the powder that we sell.

For those needing to avoid gluten, mesquite powder is the perfect answer because it’s free of gluten and contains up to 30% protein in the form of lysine. It’s also high in soluble fibre that aids digestion maintains a healthy gut and boosts the immune system.

The presence of zinc also helps to boost the immune system while mesquite’s anti-fungal properties play a part in keeping your body healthy. There’s also omega-3 fatty acids to lower inflammation and help avert other problems, calcium to build strong bones, potassium for water regulation and magnesium that aids enzyme production as well as helping with relaxation and mental health.

Copper and iron are also present to prevent anaemia while the presence of lots of fibre slows the absorption of sugar and gives mesquite a low glycemic index of 25. Because of this, it does not cause spikes in blood sugar levels and so is perfect for diabetics and those with other blood sugar issues since it reduces or prevents the need for insulin.
