Mesquite Bean Health Benefits
July 06, 2022
What we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action. And believe me, there’s been some action since this year has been the largest harvest ever! Do you know what this means? It means we can now supply you with more of the locally sustainable super food your body craves in order to help you manage your weight, regenerate muscles, regulate digestion, lower blood pressure and better control diabetes. With more people learning about the benefits of our Texas Mesquite Beans, the demand has exploded and we’re grateful to say so has our harvest.
We’ve been working round the clock to bring you more of our healthy and tasty mesquite beans better known as the "Southwest’s Superfood”. Did you know they are actually part of the legume family? Though this has recently become news to most of us, native American Indians have relied on this important food source forever by drying and grounding it into mesquite flour. Our very own Mesquite Bean Flour is rich in protein and micronutrients such as magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc, and calcium. If you’ve never tried it, it tastes sweet and nutty, making it perfect for low-glycemic breads, pancakes, tortillas and can basically be added to any recipe that calls for traditional flour. It is also gluten-free and packed with antioxidants, healthy fats and fiber. Knowing that, it’s worth noting that due to it being gluten-free, one part Mesquite Bean Flour works best mixed with one part traditional flour when making dough.
But wait, there’s MORE! Mesquite bean pods don’t end at baking. Not only do Cappapdona Ranch Mesquite Beans offer a great, low-acidity alternative to traditional coffee grounds, but Mesquite Bean Coffee, in particular, provides a natural pick-me-up that is also naturally sweetened. Mother Nature provides it all.
Mesquite beans can also be used in both jellies and sauces to add a nutty sweetness to any dish. Our Mesquite Bean Jelly is the perfect companion for pouring over cream cheese, rimming margaritas, spicing up your baklava and taking all your other tasty treats to the next level.
