Nutiva - Organic Coconut Flour - 1 lb (454g)
Nutiva Organic Coconut Flour is an excellent, gluten-free, non-grain alternative. This versatile flour is finely ground from dried coconut meat, with a lower glycemic index than most traditional flours. Its rich texture and natural sweetness make it great for baking. Nutiva Coconut Flour is certified gluten-free.
Coconut flour can be substituted for up to 1/3rd of wheat flour in standard recipes. Due to its high fiber content
it absorbs lots of liquid, so increase the liquid in the
recipe by an equal amount. Because it is gluten-free, it is necessary to add egg, chia gel, or even substitute a small amount of tapioca flour to assure that it binds properly.
Once a central part of the traditional Pacific Islander diet, luscious coconut is fast becoming a staple in modern healthy diets as well. Coconut contains lauric acid, a medium-chain fatty acid also found in human breast milk. Lauric acid makes up about 50% of coconut oil. Nutiva's coconut products come from Southeast Asia, where the coconut oil is processed immediately upon harvesting. The creamy, white meat of the coconut is scooped out of the shell by hand. What you get is simply the creamy, fresh flavor of pure coconut.
