The mesquite powder is produced from tree ripened seedpods which have been compressed and slowly dehydrated into a sweet, fine powder. The seedpods offer valuable fiber and protein to this deliciously satiating powder. Among the other nutrients, there are beneficial minerals present such as potassium, calcium, and iron.
Mesquite powder has historically been used as a thickening agent in soups, hot cereals, puddings, and beverages offering a sweet, nutty flavor. It can be added in salads, soups, smoothies, breads and other baked goods as a flavor enhancer or for light sweetness.
