Botanical Name: Prosopis Pallida

PODS FROM A MAJESTIC TREE THAT GROWS IN NORTH PERU AND MEXICO


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.

Mesquite is a superfood high in protein, amino acids, fiber, inositol, and minerals such as iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, zinc and iron. It contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, E, as well as folic acid.

Our raw organic Mesquite powder is low in sugar, but has a natural sweet, exotic flavour. Use as protein powder, or as a nutrient boost in energy drinks. Add nutrition value when baking cookies, cereals, and power bars.
