BetterBody Foods Organic Coconut Flour, Gluten-Free, 2.25 lbsCategory: Irish FlourOrganic coconut flour is a healthy, delicious alternative to traditional wheat or grain flours. Many people rave about the health benefits of coconut flour and how great it makes them feel from eating just a few tablespoons per day. And if you're interested in cooking with coconut flour, you should know it's extremely versatile and can be used in a number of tasty recipes. Coconut flour is made from the meat of dried coconuts. Coconuts are usually harvested for their milk or oil. After these are taken, the dried coconut is then carefully ground into a fine, light, white powder, giving it a flour-like texture. Most types of coconut flour are organic because no chemicals are needed to process the coconut meat or dry it out. The coconuts are sometimes dried in an oven to remove any remaining moisture-this gives coconut flour a light toasted taste, complimenting the slight flavor of coconut. Even if you don't care for coconut, the taste of coconut flour is very mild and blends seamlessly with your baked goods. Ditch the empty carbs and reach for organic coconut flour instead. It's gluten free, low-glycemic and lightly textured, making it an appetizing alternative to standard grain-based flours. Since it's made from ground coconut, coconut flour retains some benefits of coconut oil. And you get 23% dietary fiber in every 16g serving-great for low carb and paleo diets. When using BetterBody Foods Organic Coconut Flour in your recipes, substitute it for 20%-100% of wheat flour. For every 1/2 Cup of Organic Coconut Flour used, add 2-3 eggs and 1/4 Cup extra liquid. Consider using a binding agent such as chia, flax, tapioca starch or xanthan gum to keep your end product from crumbling. BetterBody Foods sources the coconuts used in our Organic Coconut Flour from the Philippines, Sri Lanka, India. The final product, however, is processed and packaged in our company headquarters in Utah.
