Coconut flour is high in manganese which may support the absorption of many different minerals including choline, biotin, vitamin C and thiamine. It also helps promote a healthy immune system, thyroid health, and helps to promote and stabilize healthy blood sugar levels. Coconut flour is also high in lauric acid which is a healthy saturated fat and is essential for immune health. It is also known to possibly promote healthy skin and thyroid health. Since coconut is full of fiber and low in digestible carbohydrates, coconut flour has a gentle impact on blood glucose.
If you're concerned about your blood sugar levels, this type of flour can be a great alternative to traditional flours.
Our Raw Organic Coconut Flour can be used for baking, to thicken gravy, or as a supplement to boost fiber content in smoothies. To substitute the entire amount of traditional wheat flour in a recipe with coconut flour, you will need to do some recipe tweaking. Coconut flour doesn't rise or gel together like wheat flour. It readily absorbs moisture so the secret when using 100% Coconut Flour is to add one egg per ounce of coconut flour (on the average) or 4 eggs to 1 cup flour. You can also substitute 1 cup of applesauce per 1 egg for vegan recipes.
Coconut Flour lends a rich texture and natural sweetness to baked goods. Due to its high fiber content, it absorbs a lot of liquid and you will generally need to increase the liquid called for in the recipe by about a third. For extended freshness, refrigerate after opening.
