Health Secrets of Coconut Flour
Our raw coconut flour is made in small batches from unheated coconut meat and dried using proprietary tumbler-dry method. Coconut flour is gluten-free, very low carb, actually lowers the calorie content of food, contains 40% dietary fiber, promotes lipid oxidation (helps burn fat), aids in digestive health, and helps balance blood sugar levels.
Use for baking, to thicken gravy, or as a supplement to super-boost fiber content in smoothies and any recipe! Coconut flour readily absorbs moisture, so we suggest that you blend with other flours at a ratio of 1 cup coconut flour to 1 cup alternate flour. A second popular option for those wishing to use 100% coconut flour, is the addition of eggs at a ratio of 4 eggs to 1 cup flour. Since coconut flour is gluten-free, eggs act as a gluten substitute in any recipe. It can also be helpful to increase the liquid content in coconut flour recipes by adding an extra 1-to-1 ratios of liquid per equal amount of flour.
Certified Organic Raw Coconut Flour
"I buy your raw coconut flour thru the raw food world and really like it. Is it safe to eat it this way tho, I had read that coconut flour HAS to be heated becuz of e coli or something like that? I obviously have had no problems as of yet but don't like the idea of that. Thanks for your help. ~ Annette"
Thank you so much for your support of our products! You can rest assured that the Coconut Flour is tested for pathogens, so there is no possibility of E-coli. The only difference between ours and other coconut flours is that our drying method involves spinning (tumbling), rather than high heat, in order to preserve its nutrient profile. The end result, however, is still fully dried. E-coli needs somewhat of a moist environment in order to thrive. Also, generally E-coli comes from meat and poultry that haven't been handled properly. The Flour is produced and packaged in dedicated facilities that make nothing other than that specific product. In addition, the organic and kosher inspectors thoroughly check for pathogens and the cleanliness of our facilities. Blessings ~ Zoe @ Coconut Secret
