Mesquite powder is not only packed with vitamins and minerals, but is also gluten free and has a low GI index. Used in smoothies or as a substitute for sugar or flour, Mesquite is high in protein (16%) which promotes muscle growth and has a high soluble fibre content, which helps stabilise blood sugars, negating sugar spikes.
Use less sugar and flour and control those sugar spikes
Mesquite powder has a sweet caramel-like flavour and is used to replace sugar and substitute flour. Unlike sugar, Mesquite powder rates low on the Glycemic index (25) and its natural sugar contains fructose, which (unlike sucrose) doesn’t need insulin to be metabolized by the body. This means Mesquite is an invaluable tool for diabetics or those trying to maintain their blood sugar levels.
When substituting flour, it’s best to use ¼ Mesquite powder to ¾ flour. That is if a recipe calls for one cup of flour, use ¼ of a cup of Mesquite powder and ¾ cup flour.
A fantastic nutritional profile
Mesquite powder is made up of 16% protein, which the body uses to make and repair tissues and is the important building block of bones, skin, blood and muscle. It has good amounts of Calcium which is helps to maintain healthy hair, skin and bones and also high amounts of zinc, required for a healthy immune system.
Soluble fibre protects from diabetes and heart disease
Mesquite contains over 30% fiber which not only helps to promote regular bowel movements, but it also helps to prevent diabetes and improve heart health. As soluble fibre doesn’t absorb in the same way unsoluable fibre does, there are no blood sugar spikes that increase the risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease. For those with diabetes, soluble fibre can be used to regulate blood sugar levels
