Mesquite is a sweet and nutty superfood that doesn’t cause blood sugar spikes, and helps to boost your immune system.
Most people don’t know that mesquite is a healthy, natural sweetener because they’ve only ever heard of mesquite associated with grilling meat. But Native Americans used the ground up pods from the mesquite tree for flour and as a natural sweetener.
Mesquite has a low glycemic index of 25, so it’s a great alternative to regular, less-healthy sweeteners. And it also has measurable amounts of calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, and zinc.
