Fantastic News! Our awesome Organic Mesquite Bean Flour has been shortlisted in this year’s Free From Food Awards in the Free From Ingredients category!
This is not only great for us at The Mesquite Company, it’s great news for the 600,000 gluten intolerant people in this country, as well as millions more people who have yet to discover the joys of using mesquite flour in their daily lives.
Our aim is to bring the wonderful taste and aroma of mesquite flour to gluten free cooking and food connoisseurs across the country and beyond! Our involvement in the Awards will help us bring the South American Soul Food revolution to a pantry near you!
Mesquite flour livens up bland gluten-free flours and baking or pancake mixes, works fantastically well in cakes, puddings and treats of all kinds, and can be used to bring a sweet smoky flavour to meat dishes and savoury meals. The unique but somehow familiar taste and aroma of chocolate, cinnamon, mocha and coconut, along with excellent nutritional qualities and fruit sugars make mesquite flour a real contender for the superfood of the 21st century. For the purists out there, just do as I love to do and mix in a tablespoon of mesquite flour into a glass of milk for a real treat! Just like chocolate milk but without any of the bad stuff!
It is a real honour to be short-listed in such a prestigious competition, and we would like to thank Cressida, Michelle, and the team at FoodsMatter.com and freefromfoodawards.co.uk for their help and support, not to mention the judges for selecting our product as one of the potential winners!
We will be attending the Free From Food Awards ceremony and invitation only dinner at Kew Bridge Stream Museum on April 6th. The awards are sponsored by Juvela and will be presented by top celebrity chef Antony Worrall Thompson.
It will be a great opportunity to introduce our product to a host of industry professionals and hopefully potential customers!
