Organic Mesquite Powder
Indigenous populations in the Americas have long used mesquite powder. It’s tasty as a sweetener, flour, or fermented into an alcoholic beverage. Mesquite has a unique sweet, dark, and nutty flavor.
Our organic mesquite powder is never heated and is considered raw.
How to Enjoy Mesquite Powder
Our organic mesquite powder has a sweet caramel-like flavor, with a hint of nuttiness. Mesquite can be used in breads, biscuits, baked goods, and dietetic desserts. Unlike white flour, mesquite powder does not cause spikes in blood sugar levels so it is an ideal sweetener for diabetics. When baking with mesquite, substitute up to 25 percent of the wheat flour in your recipe with mesquite powder. Since mesquite is naturally sweet, you may consider reducing the amount of other sugars and sweeteners in your recipe.
Mesquite can be added to drinks and smoothies for a boost of sweetness and nutrition. It can also be used to add a classic sweet flavor to savory dishes, baked beans, and smokey barbeque sauces. Experiment with mesquite powder to add the perfect touch of natural sweetness to your recipes.
Health Benefits of Mesquite Powder
Mesquite powder is a great option for diabetics because it prevents spikes in blood sugar associated with eating white flour and high-sugar foods. Mesquite's natural sweetness comes from fructose, which does not require the body to produce insulin and therefore helps maintain steady blood sugar levels. It is also high in soluble fiber, which takes the body longer to digest and prevents you from getting hungry again too quickly.
Mesquite powder is also rich in protein, particularly in the form of the amino acid lysine. Lysine helps the body's uptake of calcium and assists in the formation of new bone tissue. It also helps relieve stress and anxiety. Additionally, mesquite powder provides a boost of minerals like calcium, magnesium, iron, and potassium.

Mesquite powder is delicious (I love it for energy boost and for appetite suppressant!), and I could go on and on. Thanks for wonderful products, web site, and service. You are heads and tails above everyone else...I usually wait several weeks to get any edibles...”

“Wow! You guys are amazing! Great product, low prices, fast delivery, and the best online ordering experience ever. I just made a batch of raw chocolate with your cacao butter, mesquite, red maca, and carob powders. Absolute Perfection! The medjool dates were also fantastic. I will be ordering again and recommending you to friends. Thanks!”

“Mesquite Powder is usually expensive, since it is kind of I suppose, a more elite supplement that is harder to find. Nutsonline has so many of these elite powders, like ginkgo leaf, camu camu, Maca, etc. It stuns me how these prices are so low compared to others, but at the same time I cannot be happier.
The Mesquite I ordered smells soo delicious, have never smelled anything like it, and it doesn't overwhelm my smoothies either! Great source of Iron and other minerals, even calcium. Amazing anti-diabetic. This powder is smoky, and tasty, so good.”

“Received the products today as promised when I ordered -- very impressive. The mesquite powder has a unique taste -- haven't had a chance to use it but am hoping it lowers the blood sugar readings. The new orleans coffee has a wonderful aroma and am looking forward to my first cup in the am. Keep up the wonderful service.”
