Coconut Flour – Gluten-Free and High in Fibre
Coconut trees have been cultivated for at least 3000 years. The nutritious coconuts rich in good fat and high-quality protein made tropical islanders enjoy a good health over many generations, before they often changed their eating habits due to exterior influences.
Coconut flour is made from fresh coconut meat, which has been de-oiled and dried and then ground into fine flour.
With 40% dietary fibres coconut flour is one of the highest fibre foods. Fibres promote digestive and intestinal health, bind toxins, reduce blood lipids, regulate blood sugar levels and help to keep you slim.
Unlike grains coconut flour is free of gluten and phytic acid and great to use in baking recipes, bread spreads, sauces, desserts and more.
Since fibres absorb liquid, coconut flour is an excellent binding agent for soups and sauces and gives dishes a more smooth texture than is possible with normal flour.
Coconut flour contributes to a balanced, high-grade protein supply as it contains about 20% protein with all eight essential amino acids.
It is low in calories and perfect for a low-carb diet. Coconut flour contains approx. 11% coconut oil with its healthy medium-chain fatty acids, which are beneficial for heart health and weight control.
Why we love Coconut Flour
The coconut with its wonderful exotic flavour has become an integral part of our kitchen and many baked goods.
The gluten-free flour is a great alternative for people with celiac disease or sensitive digestive system, who appreciate the importance of a light diet for gastrointestinal health.
Coconut flour only has 25% of calories and fat left from the coconut and contains less digestible carbs than normal flours. Foods out of coconut flour are filling and ensure a longlasting satiety due to their high fibre content and rich amino acid supply.
SamaraNatura Coconut Flour
Our coconut flour from the Philippines is made from fresh coconut meat from organic coconuts that are locally processed within three days after harvest.
After oil extraction, the de-oiled coconut meat is dried in raw food quality below 40 °C, and afterwards finely ground like ordinary flour.
Our coconut flour is made from certified organic cultivation, contains no preservatives, no additives, is unsweetened and unbleached.
In baking recipes you can replace up to 30% of standard flours (containing gluten) by coconut flour. Due to its high absorbency add more liquid to the recipe. Sugars can be reduced as coconut flour has a slightly sweet taste.
To meet your fibre needs you can mix coconut flour into smoothies, shakes and juices and sprinkle it over cereals and fruit salads. It perfectly fits to the raw-food cuisine giving raw desserts and sauces a delicious flavour.
Coconut flour even in small amounts is an excellent binding agent for sauces, soups and spreads creating a pleasant texture of these dishes.
