Mesquite powder is ground from the pods of the mesquite plant, a leguminous plant found in arid regions including parts of South American and the southwestern United States. The powder has a sweet, caramel-like flavor, making it an excellent addition to smoothies, raw and baked desserts, or hot/cold cereals.
Mesquite powder is rich in calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc, and has a relatively high dietary fiber and protein content. With a relatively low glycemic index, mesquite helps maintain constant blood sugar levels and is often recommended for diabetics.

Want to try it? Mesquite powder is available in the bulk or baking aisles of many natural foods stores, and is widely available online. Look for versions from Navitas Naturals and Raw Power Organics.
