Organic Mesquite Powder is an ACO certified organic ingredient that has been cultivated for thousands of years by the prehispanic people of South America. Mesquite is typically grown on the north coast of Peru and is grown by the local farmer’s community, Ignacio Tavara Pasapera. Mesquite is known to be a natural source of energy and soluble fibre. The Organic Mesquite powder is sweet and with a hint of caramel taste, making it an ideal ingredient in any food or beverage applications.
