Navitas Naturals Mesquite Power Mesquite Powder Certified Organic -8 oz. (227 g)

Navitas Naturals Mesquite Power Mesquite Powder  the Superfood of the Americas.  Mesquite is a traditional food of indigenous cultures from the arid regions of the Americas. Today, mesquite’s distinct flavor and aroma continue to be enjoyed in many culinary applications, and it’s health benefits widely respected. Navitas Naturals offers this food in its traditional and organic powder form, which carries a sweet, smoky flavor that is similar to carob and caramel. Its inviting taste lends a delightful maltiness when used in sweet treats such as chocolates, as well as creamy concoctions like ice cream or shakes. With naturally low sugars derived from fructose; high amounts of dietary fiber; and notable quantities of protein, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and zinc, it’s easy to see why this Native American staple is a modern-day superfood.

Source and Processing
Navitas Naturals Mesquite Powder, also known as “algarrobo,” is a whole food that comes from the high desert plains of northern Peru. The ripe pods are picked, low-temperature dried, and milled into a fine soluble powder. This product has only one ingredient, mesquite, which is raw, gluten-free, kosher, vegan, and 100% organic.

Mesquite (mes-keet ) the edible bean-like pods of the spiny trees or shrubs belonging to the genus Prosopis (of western North America), having bipinnate leaves and often forming dense thickets.

Native American Sweet Tradition
Mesquite is a traditional staple food of indigenous cultures from the arid regions of the Americas. Native to South America, the mesquite tree produces large seed-filled pods, which are collected, ground into a delicious flour, and used in recipes. Desert dwellers often relied upon the sweet pods as a staple food, and would even use them as a bartering tool with neighboring tribes. Today, mesquite’s distinct flavor and wonderful smell continue to be enjoyed in many culinary applications, with it’s health benefits widely respected. Navitas Naturals offers this food in its traditional and organic powdered form.

The Power of Mesquite
Mesquite is of particularly great value to those looking to balance blood sugar levels. Mesquite flour offers a naturally sweet flavor to recipes, but its sugars are derived from fructose (which does not require insulin to digest and is readily metabolized). Additionally, the flour is an excellent form of fiber – meeting almost a quarter of daily needs in just two tablespoons – which not only improves digestion but further benefits sugar metabolism. Mesquite also contains lysine (an amino acid), as well as notable quantities of digestible protein, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc. As such a balanced food, it is easy to see why our Native American ancestors relied so heavily on mesquite as a staple form of delicious nourishment.

Malty Magic
Navitas Naturals Mesquite Power carries a sweet, smoky flavor that is similar to carob, with caramel undertones. It’s rich taste and aroma pairs well with both vanilla and chocolate, and it lends a delightful maltiness when used in sweet treats. Mesquite blends beautifully with any plant or animal-based milk, is an excellent addition to smoothies, and is fantastic when sprinkled into ice cream. Exquisite malty chocolate can be concocted with this ingredient, and mesquite can also be used as an aromatic partial flour substitute. This is a wonderful food to experiment with.

DID YOU KNOW?
The mesquite tree provides a powerful source of nourishment in arid environments where food sources are scarce. Such is the case in Mesoamerican cultures, where mesquite meal has been used as staple baking flour for over 2000 years. Native animals have also been known to benefit from consuming this nutrient-rich food. Recently, scientists discovered that goats found nibbling on mesquite pods showed an increase in appetite, growth rate, and digestion.

Suggested Use

Chef's Notes:

  • Mesquite has a sweet and nutty flavor, similar to carob.
  • Use this powder in baking, mixed in with other flours for extra sweetness and nutrition.
  • Mesquite adds a wonderful maltiness when added to smoothies and nutmilks.
  • Cacao and mesquite make for a complimentary flavor profile.
  • Mesquite has a strong flavor and can overwhelm a recipe – always start small (1 tsp at a time) and increase as desired.

    Many places mention that it tastes smoky, but its anything but that. The taste may surprise you if you haven't tried it yet. There's just one way to find out!

    I use this in my smoothies to add sweetness--it is just mesquite pods ground up, so it's a natural form of sweetener which has a caramel type of flavor.
