Mesquite Meal Raw Organic 500g

Mesquite is a very hardy and drought-tolerant plant because it grow wide-spreading and deep-reaching root systems that host colonies of bacteria that can fix nitrogen, one of the minerals most important to plant germination and growth. Therefore it can draw water from the water table through its long taproot or from the upper part of the ground, depending upon availability.

Scientific researches have found that mesquite is a good blood sugar balancer therefore it is safe for diabetics. This is because its sweetness is from its fructose content, which doens’t requires insulin. Mesquite has high content of fibres, thus requires a longer time to digest and absorb then many other grains. The digestive time for mesquite is to 4 to 6 hours by comparison with the 1-2 hours digestive time of wheat. This feature prevents fluctuations in blood sugar and therefore can also prevents the feeling of hunger. Therefore mesquite is a food that supports the diabetic’s diet and helps maintain a healthy insulin system.

The bean pods of the mesquite can be dried and ground into flour, adding a sweet, nutty taste to breads, or used to make jelly or wine. When used in baking, the mesquite flour is used in combination with other flours – substitute 1/4 cup-to-1/2 cup mesquite flour for each cup grain or rice flour. Mesquite is used in breads, pancakes, muffins, cakes and even cookies. Mesquite can also flavour steaks, chicken, pork & fish. It can be added to vegetable stir-fries, scrambled eggs, soups, even ice cream.
