Native to southwestern United States and Mexico, mesquite trees are hardy and deep-rooted, producing long seed pods. The pods are harvested and the beans removed, to be ground up to make powder. This powder can be used as a flour, and being gluten-free, it is a tremendous boon to anyone who must steer clear of gluten!
Mesquite has a rich taste, similar to that of caramel. High in protein and in solute fiber, using mesquite powder as a sweetener can help prevent blood sugar spikes and makes us feel fuller for a longer period of time after eating. (More Info)
