Description

Natural source of amino acids, minerals and fibre

 

Mesquite can be found in the high desert plains of Peru and Mexico where the still winds and dry weather establish a stable atmosphere for the tree to thrive.

The ancient superfood’s history dates back to Mexico 6500 BC, where it was first harvested as an essential food and used as a currency to trade within Indigenous cultures.

Due to its environment, the tree has adapted and developed a special mechanism to gather water and nutrients from deep within the earth. Mesquite powder is low in sugar but has a natural sweet exotic flavour. It also contains many nutritious properties including, calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium, zinc, amino acids and dietary fibre.

Harvesting consist of the pods being picked when they are entireley ripe. They are then dried at a low temperature and milled into a fine powder.
