Superfoods – Raw Organic Mesquite Powder
Superfoods – Raw Organic Mesquite Powder provides a steady supply of fiber in your diet, which helps in supporting digestive functions. A combination of protein and fiber in your diet offers a useful satiety effect when maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Mesquite powder is a source of protein providing the useful amino acids that our bodies need for numerous functions. These amino acids are the building blocks of healthy lean muscle and can help support an active immune system.** With adequate protein intake, our bodies are able to properly replicate our precious DNA and provide the needed energy to take on the day. Our bodies need large amounts of macrominerals such as calcium and potassium. These minerals offer support to properly maintain our structural systems such as muscle and bone health. In addition to being great electrolytes, potassium assists in proper fluid balance and muscle and nerve function while calcium supports in bone and immune system health. Iron is a necessary micromineral as it is involved with energy metabolism and is a part of red blood cells which carry oxygen throughout the body.

How It Works
The mesquite powder is produced from tree ripened seedpods which have been compressed and slowly dehydrated into a sweet, fine powder. The seedpods offer valuable fiber and protein to this deliciously satiating powder. Among the other nutrients, there are beneficial minerals present such as potassium, calcium, and iron.
Mesquite powder has historically been used as a thickening agent in soups, hot cereals, puddings, and beverages offering a sweet, nutty flavor. It can be added in salads, soups, smoothies, breads and other baked goods as a flavor enhancer or for light sweetness.
