Mad for Mesquite

You've seen it in SuperChoc, you've tasted its wholesome sweetness, now, you can try some by itself and mix up your own creations with Gnosis' Bulk Ingredients!

Mesquite is a fine powder ground from ripened seed-pods from the mesquite tree. This traditional Native American food is a great source of protein and contains a large amount of the amino acid lysine. Mesquite is also high in fiber and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and zinc.

People who are sugar-conscious or diabetic may love Mesquite as a sweetener because with a glycemic index of 25, Mesquite requires a longer time to digest then many grains. The digestive time for Mesquite is 4 to 6 hours unlike wheat which digests in 1 to 2 hours! And while its sugar content is moderate, it has a sweet molasses-like flavor with a hint of caramel!

Here's an awesome mesquite recipe to get you goin'

2 tbsp Cacao Powder
1 Tbsp Mesquite Powder
2 Tbsp Yacon Syrup
1/4 tsp. dried chipotle, powder
1/4 tsp. dried chipotle, powder
