Flour and Flour Blends

A great gluten-free alternative!

What Is So Special About Coconut Flour?

Coconut flour is uniquely different from wheat alternatives. It is naturally low in digestible carbohydrates and contains no gluten. It has less carbohydrates than soy or nut flours, but is high in fiber and a good source of protein. Coconut flour is 4 times higher in fiber than oat bran, 2 times higher in fiber than wheat bran, and 3 times higher in fiber than ground flaxseed. Unlike other fibers, coconut flour/fiber can be used as a flour to make delicious bakery products and main dishes that are much tastier than their wheat alternatives. Coconut flour also contains more protein than white, rye flour or cornmeal. It has as much protein as buckwheat or whole wheat flours. Breads made with coconut flour are light and soft and have a wonderful taste and texture.

Coconut Flour vs. Wheat Alternatives

Wheat alternatives are commonly based on flours made from rice, soy and potatoes. Even though these products do not contain gluten, most substitutes for wheat are still high in carbohydrates. Unfortunately, the taste and texture of products made with wheat alternatives are not nearly as appetizing as the products they replace. In addition, these products are often loaded with flavor enhancers and sweeteners to help make them more palatable. Normally, products made with wheat alternatives are "enjoyed" only by those who are forced to do without wheat and have no choice.

How is Wilderness Family Naturals' Coconut Flour different from other brands?

Wilderness Family Naturals' Coconut flour is produced similar to other coconut flours with a few exceptions: The organic coconuts are dried at low temperatures and when the dried coconut is pressed it is pressed slowly and carefully so no heat is generated and no "toasting" of the flakes occurs. You will notice that this organic coconut flour is white rather than the beige or light tan of other brands. Because of this gentle process, which generates little or no heat, there is slightly more oil in the coconut flour and more flavor. We find this preferable when making baked goods or making gluten-free mixes.


FYI: Coconut Flour and Sulfites

A person can search the web and find companies who claim their coconut flour and coconut flakes are "sulfite-free." In the strictest sense, however, this is simply not true. Companies that do this, I can guarantee, have never checked the sulfite level on the products.

How to Use Coconut Flour in Your Kitchen:

As a rule, you need to add approximately 6 eggs for every ½ cup of coconut flour you use in your recipe and will need to increase liquids because the fiber greatly absorbs liquid. Eggs will take the place of the gluten found in wheat, and help the fiber to stick together. Other people who want to increase their fiber intake, but do not want to bake or make anything, add coconut flour to smoothies. Coconut flour is more palatable in smoothies than any other fiber, even though it supplies significantly more roughage than any other source.

Adding Coconut Flour to Your Favorite Recipe:

Because Coconut flour does not contain any gluten, it will fall apart if you substitute it 100% for another flour in a wheat based recipe. You can, however, substitute up to 25% (15-20% is best) of that flour with coconut flour. In addition, whatever amount of coconut flour you use, you need to increase the liquid in your recipe by that same measure. So, for example, if your recipe calls for 2 cups of wheat flour, you could use 1 ½ cups of wheat flour, ½ cup of coconut flour, and ½ cup of additional liquid such as milk, water, or juice. This will greatly increase the fiber content of that food.
