Organic Mesquite Powder (AKA Algarroba)

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 powder, 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.
