What are the Health Benefits of Coconut Flour?

For those who are becoming more conscious of the foods they eat, look for healthy alternatives to foods that are nutritionally inadequate. When seeking a healthy flour alternative, coconut flour meets the requirements. Made from the meat of coconuts after the oil has been removed, coconut flour is loaded with nutrients that offer numerous health benefits.

High in Fibre

Coconut flour contains almost double the amount of fibre found in wheat bran. Fibre has numerous Health benefits, from reducing the absorption of sugar into the blood stream, to lowering cholesterol. In fact, according to a study published in the December 2006 issue of “Innovative Food Science & Emerging Technologies,” adding coconut flour to your food intake can significantly reduce your cholesterol levels. It can also reduce your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes and certain types of cancer. Naturopathic Doctor, Bruce Fife, explains that the recommended fibre intake is between 20 to 35 g per day, with very few people even coming close to that amount. He suggests that you add coconut to your daily routine in the amount of a few tablespoons per day. Adding it to your gravies, casseroles, baked goods, or even a dab to a smoothie will significantly raise your fibre intake.

High in Protein

Although coconut flour does not contain the gluten protein, it still has significant protein content. A report from the Coconut Research Center states that coconut flour contains more protein per serving than the other leading flours, such as white, rye or cornmeal. It contains just as much protein as wheat flour, even though it doesn’t contain the gluten protein.
