Peruvian Mesquite



Add to basket

Peruvian Algarroba powder comes from the pods of the mesquite tree (Prosopis pallida), also known as American carob and considered a superfood and part of a staple diet in Peru, it is a similar colour to mesquite meal powder and can be used where mesquite is shown. It has a malt flavour, caramel quality, similar to carob, a little smokey. It works perfectly in protein drinks and smoothies and adding it to raw recipes, such as to sweeten treats, desserts, cakes, macaroons and fudge. Health benefits include dietary soluble fibre, protein, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and zinc and rich in the amino acid lysine, it's easy to see why this Native American staple is a modern-day superfood.

We recommend ½ tbsp (4 grams) of algarroba powder a day mixed into daily into a smoothie or drinks, cakes and treats. I enjoy this with 1 tsp maca, 1 tbsp cacao powder, ½ tbsp. algarroba mixed with almond milk. This is a really luxurious superfoods drink.
