Mesquite: Natural Blood Sugar Balance

Sunfood Organic Mesquite Powder

Mesquite: Natural Blood Sugar Balance

It is estimated that over 25 million adults and children in the U.S. have diabetes. That’s over 8% of the population! Another 79 million people have blood sugar sensitivities that many consider to be pre-diabetic (according to the American Diabetes Association). Mesquite can be a delicious tool to help balance blood sugar and deliver a healthy dose of nutrition.

What Is Mesquite?

Mesquite (Prosopis pallida) is a leguminous tree that makes its home in some of the driest climates on Earth. Mesquite powder is made by grinding up these seed pods into a fine meal, which is often used as flour. All over the Americas, from Chile to California, mesquite has been used by native populations for centuries as a reliable source of food in the harshest of climates.

Benefits of Mesquite

Mesquite has great value in its ability to help balance blood sugar levels. The sugars in mesquite come from fructose as opposed to glucose. Fructose does not require insulin for the body to use it. The soluble fibers found in mesquite cause it to be digested more slowly than foods like wheat or corn, which can cause spikes in blood sugar levels.

Plus mesquite contains a phytochemical called Quercetin which displays anti-diabetic properties. Mesquite also boasts impressive protein content and a solid variety of minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, zinc and potassium.

Mesquite’s combination of calcium and magnesium makes it a great food for bone health. But native populations did not just use mesquite as a food. This sacred tree’s pods were also used medicinally, a practice supported by mesquite’s ability to enhance the immune system.

The Sunfood Difference™

Our certified organic, non-GMO mesquite is processed at low temperatures to preserve delicate enzymes and nutrients. The raw powder has a sweet, rich, molasses-like flavor with a hint of caramel and blends well into smoothies and recipes, especially those with cacao and maca.
