Loving Earth Mesquite Powder Product Information

Mesquite was traditionally consumed as a staple food. It has an incredibly low GI and a high mineral content, and the reason why the GI is so low is partly because of that very high mineral content. Our mesquite is comprised 100% of whole ground pods. It has a high level of dietary fibre, meaning it’s difficult for the body to break down and digest. This is a good thing, and another reason why it has such a low GI rating: it takes a long time for the body to process it, giving you a long-lasting energy boost and reducing hunger for a sustained period. Mesquite is high in protein (16%) and contains significant quantities of calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc. It’s low in carbohydrate, low in fat and rich in the amino acid lysine.

Loving Earth Mesquite Powder Directions

Sweet and caramel-like, Mesquite makes a great addition to cakes, ice cream and lots of other desserts. It’s also fantastic sprinkled on your favourite breakfast cereal, or used in smoothies to give a certain depth and roundness of flavour.
