For that nutty coconut flavor: Coconut Flour
Coconut flour is a soft flour made from dried coconut meat. Pure coconut flour is gluten-free and can be used as a substitute for wheat flour. Compared to wheat flour, coconut flour has more fat, protein, and fiber. Iron is the primary mineral present in coconut flour, making it a good option for people on vegan or vegetarian diets who are concerned about getting enough iron. Coconut flour can help people manage illnesses that respond positively to a gluten-free diet. The high amounts of fiber in coconut flour can help you feel fuller longer, increase your energy levels, and decrease your appetite. People who are obese might experience an even greater effect when eating more fiber.
• Healthier substitute for wheat flour
• High amounts of fiber help in weight loss
• Control blood sugar (lower glycemic index rating)
• When using coconut flour as a substitute for wheat flour recipes must be adjusted to account for its different composition. Coconut flour is thicker than wheat flour and retains more liquid. Because it is gluten-free, doughs made with coconut flour need to be mixed longer.
