Agro-Chemical Free


UK Trading Standards have now made mesquite meal (powder) into a ‘novel food’ under EU government law. “A novel food is defined as a food or food ingredient that does not have a significant history of consumption within the EU before 15 May 1997.” FSA. This means that mesquite, despite being a traditional Native American food that has been used for centuries, is now an illegal food throughout the whole of the UK and Europe.

As such, we are now selling this mesquite, not for human consumption and it is your responsibility, as the buyer, what you choose to do with this product. In purchasing this from Detox Trading we take no legal responsibility for your choice.

Traditionally mesquite powder has been used by the Native Americans as an important food source. It has an aroma and flavour of caramel and has been used as an alternative to brown sugar as well as being used as an important flour in baking.

We stock a range of alternative sweeteners including organic yacon powder, agave syrup and stevia.

How is mesquite powder produced?

Mesquite powder is dried and then ground from the entire bean pod of the wild mesquite tree, part of the Prosopis family found in desert environments across southeastern USA, Mexico and South America.
