Coconut Flour Info

A Good Choice for Many Reasons


Coconut flour is low in carbs, so it is great for those following a low carb lifestyle, including diabetics. It doesn't contain gluten, so it's also a great choice for those who are gluten intolerant or want to avoid grains for other reasons. It is also high in fiber and protein.

Coconut flour is more than ground up coconut; it is made by defatting and drying the coconut before grinding it. Some people have tried grinding unsweetened coconut themselves and have had mixed results with it.

Because it doesn't contain gluten, coconut flour behaves differently than flours that are made from grains. Some recipes use eggs for leavening; other recipes use no eggs at all. With some experimenting, it isn't difficult to get good results with coconut flour in many different recipes.
