Organic Coconut Flour is a delicious, healthy alternative flour that can be used to replace up to 20% of the flour called for in a recipe. This high fibre flour is a terrific ingredient for gluten free, grain free and low carb baking.
Organic coconut flour is a delicious, healthy alternative to wheat and other grain flours. Ground from dried, defatted coconut meat, coconut flour is high in fibre and low in digestible carbohydrates. A single 2 tbsp serving of coconut flour delivers 5 grams of fibre with only 8 grams of carbs. This makes it ideal for those following the paleo diet or who need to be carb conscious for their health. Coconut flour is also gluten free and produced in our gluten free facility where it is batch tested using the R5 ELISA Gluten Assay.
The light coconut flavour allows coconut flour to blend seamlessly into sweet or savoury baked goods. It makes a wonderful coating for chicken, fish or other proteins in place of regular flour or cornmeal. Because of its high fibre content, baking with coconut flour is a unique experience. Coconut flour requires an equal ratio of liquid to flour for best results. Coconut flour can replace up to 20% of the flour in a recipe, but you will need to add an equal amount of liquid to compensate.
We recommend following a recipe designed for coconut flour when getting started. Luckily, we have many recipes to experiment with in our recipe section.
