A hardy legume that can be found in many arid parts of the world, the mesquite tree has long been treasured by desert peoples for its rich source of nutrition and medicinal benefits. The Pima people of the Southwest refer to it as the ?tree of life,? while the Bishnoi of North India consider it holy.
Zint Organic Mesquite Flour is made from mesquite trees grown on the northern coast of Peru. After being washed and dehydrated, the organic pods and seeds are milled to a smooth, fine powder for easy consumption. The flavor of our mesquite flour is complex and delicious, with a sweet, smoky, nutty taste and undertones of caramel and maple. The powder can be added as a nutritious seasoning to dishes and drinks such as smoothies and coffee. Because it mixes exactly as wheat does, it can also be used as a gluten-free flour substitute for baking and cooking. Discover all the wonderful health benefits and flavors of mesquite!
