Mesquite Powder is a delicious and nutritious powder with a sweet, nutty flavor. The powder is ground from the seed pods of the mesquite plant that grows in South America and the South Western US.
Mesquite Powder lends a depth and rich flavor to sauces, stews, and baked goods. Its particular texture and sweetness make it ideal as a gluten-free flour in cakes and cookies. However, watch out: it is high in fructose sugars, and about 85% carbs – almost as high as table sugar. I just add a tablespoon or so for a rich flavor.
