Organic coconut flour is made from the shredded coconut left behind from the traditional methods used to make coconut milk. With so many people finding value in a gluten or grain free diet, coconut flour has become a healthy staple in baking and cooking. Organic coconut flour retains many of the benefits of pure coconut meat. It is high in protein and good fats, free of cholesterol and refreshingly low in carbohydrates, especially compared to grain based flours. Coconut flour is very absorbent, much more so than wheat or other flours, so a little will go a long way. The most successful recipes will use a conservative amount of coconut flour and an increased amount of eggs and other liquids like coconut milk. Pureed fruits or vegetables and nut butters added to recipes also help to increase moisture content when baking. Organic coconut flour is also low allergenic, making it a wonderful and well tolerated alternative to conventional flour.High in minerals, vitamins and antioxidants, organic coconut flour makes a nutritious addition to any meal.
