This is a delicious gluten free, low glycemic alternative flour to wheat and other grain flours. Ground from dried, partly defatted organic coconut meat, coconut flour is high in fiber, high in protein and low in digestible carbohydrates. A single 2 Tbsp serving of coconut flour delivers 5 grams of fiber, 2 grams of protein and 8 grams of low glycemic carbs. This makes it ideal for those following gluten free or paleo diets and for all who wish to reduce their weight and improve digestive health.
WHY USE COCONUT FLOUR?
The light coconut flavor allows coconut flour to blend seamlessly into sweet or savory baked goods. It makes a wonderful coating for chicken, fish or other proteins in place of regular flour or cornmeal. Because of its high fiber content, baking with coconut flour is a unique experience. Coconut flour requires slightly more liquid when cooking and is often used in an equal ratio of liquid to flour for best results. We recommend following a recipe designed for coconut flour when getting started. Many of these recipes for cakes and cookies will use additional eggs to improve the binding properties. Coconut Flour is excellent also when used in conjunction with other gluten free flours, such as from nuts, tapioca, sweet potato and so on.
