Overview

Real • Organic Coconut Flour is a unique grain-free, gluten-free, an alternative to wheat-based flours. It is high in fiber, plant protein, various amino acids, trace elements, calcium and an excellent source of iron. With no preservatives, additives, or chemicals, this single-ingredient flour is simple and pure. The coconut flavor is subtle, making this flour an excellent choice for either savory or sweet recipes. Because it is so high in fiber, it is quite absorbent, so you will want to add more liquid to your recipe if using coconut flour as a replacement for wheat flour. A general rule of thumb when replacing regular flour with coconut flour, is to use only 1/3 or 1/4 of coconut flour.  Certified Organic by Pro-Cert.

Benefits of Coconut Flour

 Gluten and Wheat-Free  - Coconut flour is a gluten-free alternative to wheat flour. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye, making traditional bread and baked goods off-limits for people sensitive to gluten. Coconut flour enables you to bake some of your favorite cookies, pancakes, and cakes without the serious side effects that may come from ingesting wheat. Coconut flour does act differently in batters than traditional grain flours, though, so you'll need to seek out recipes that adjust the other recipe ingredients accordingly.

 High in Fibre  - With 5 grams of fibre per tablespoon, coconut flour has far more of this indigestible carbohydrate than whole-grain flour, which has 0.8 gram per tablespoon, or white flour, which has just 0.2 gram per tablespoon. Most of this fibre is insoluble, meaning that it adds bulk to your stool. This helps you feel full while deterring constipation and enhancing colon health. Add coconut flour to baked goods, sauces or smoothies to help you reach the recommended 25 to 38 grams of fiber daily.

 Moderate Effect on Blood Sugar  - Due to the high fibre content, coconut flour doesn't spike your blood sugar as quickly as grain-based flours. A study published in the British Journal of Nutrition found that substituting coconut flour for some of the wheat flour in traditional baked goods lowers the glycemic index -- the measure of a food's impact on blood sugar -- of the finished product. This moderate blood-sugar effect could be a positive for diabetics who need to carefully control their blood sugar. A later study published in a 2006 issue of "Innovative Food Science & Emerging Technologies" confirmed these findings.

 Good source of Manganese  - It helps you to better utilize many nutrients including choline and biotin (found in eggs), vitamin C and thiamin.  Manganese also supports bone health, nervous system function and thyroid health 

 Higher Protein and Healthy Fats  - Coconut flour also contains a significant amount of protein, especially when compared to wheat flour. A 100 gram serving of coconut flour has 19 grams of protein while wheat flour has just 10 grams. Although this protein doesn't contain all the essential amino acids, it does contribute to your total daily protein intake to help with cell repair and growth. Coconut flour also contains about 9 grams of healthy fats per 100 grams. These fats are called medium-chain triglycerides. They are easy to digest, provide instant energy, offer antiviral, antimicrobial and antifungal properties, and may boost your metabolism.
