Zint Mesquite Raw Organic Powder
Flour From The Tree Of Life
The mesquite tree has long been treasured by desert peoples for its nutrition and health benefits. The Pima people of the Southwest refer to it as the "tree of life," while the Bishnoi of North India consider it holy. The seed pods, traditionally ground into flour by mortar and pestle, offer a full gram of protein per tablespoon. Despite its low glycemic index, its natural sweetness makes it a perfect ingredient for those on sugar-controlled diets, and its fiber and protein support a controlled appetite for stable energy levels.
The Zint Difference:
Our organic mesquite is grown by local farmers on the northern coast of Peru in accordance with fair trade values. After being washed and slow-dried at low temperatures, the raw seeds and pods are milled to a fine powder. The flavor of our mesquite flour is complex and delicious, with a sweet smokiness and hints of caramel and maple.
