Mesquite powder or ‘flour’ is made by grinding the tree-ripened seed pods of the Mesquite tree, a relative of Acacias that grows in southern America. Mesquite has been a staple food of many Native American people for thousands of years. This single origin powder from Peru is certified organic and fair trade. It is made using the whole seed pod and contains no additives. Mesquite has an absolutely delightful flavour and aroma – naturally sweet, slightly nutty with yummy caramel notes. Enjoy it in dessert and baking recipes, raw food treats, hot and cold beverages, sprinkled on breakfast cereals, or in sauces and marinades.
