Did You Know?
Coconut is an excellent source of dietary fiber that facilitates healthy digestion and absorption of vitamins and minerals. It is also low in sodium, digestible carbohydrates, and very low in cholesterol. High in protein, Coconut Flour is a healthy, non-grain, alternative to wheat and other grain flours. Since it contains no gluten, Coconut Flour makes an excellent allergen-free baking ingredient for those with Celiac disease as well as a growing population of people with gluten sensitivity.
Coconut Flour can be a great alternative to traditional flours, at about half GI ranking (glycemic index) of Whole Wheat flour. Because it`s full of fiber and low in digestible carbohydrates, Coconut Flour has a more gentle impact on blood glucose. If you`re concerned about your blood sugar levels, Coconut Flour can be a great alternative to traditional flours.
Today's Whole Wheat flour is processed and genetically altered. Doctors like Dr. William Davis have found a clear link to improved health when his patients cut wheat out of their diets. Read more here.
Baking with Coconut Flour
Coconut Flour lends a rich texture and natural sweetness to baked goods.
It can be used as a substitute for up to about 1/3rd of the flour in most standard recipes. Due to its high fiber content, Coconut Flour absorbs a lot of liquid, and you`ll generally need to increase the liquid called for in the recipe by about 1/3rd as well.
To substitute the entire amount of traditional wheat flour in a recipe with Coconut Flour, you`ll need to do some recipe tweaking. Coconut Flour is non-glutinous and doesn`t rise or gel together like wheat flour. The easy solution for this is to use one egg or 3 tablespoons of Chia gel per ounce of Coconut Flour in a recipe. For the best results, we suggest you find recipes that were written specifically for Coconut Flour. Check out the Nutiva Kitchen for some delicious recipes.
