Health Benefits of Coconut Flour
Even those without gluten sensitivity can significantly improve their health by eliminating wheat flour from their diet.
Here are some of the major health benefits of coconut flour:
Contains no gluten
Unlike wheat flour, coconut flour is naturally gluten-free making it a great option for those with celiac disease or anyone with a sensitivity to gluten. Even those without gluten intolerance can benefit by eliminating gluten from their diet.
Low in carbohydrates
Coconut flour contains extremely low levels of carbohydrates (less than any other flour). For this reason, it's perfect for individuals following a paleo / low carb diet.
Contains lauric acid
Like coconut oil and coconut meat, coconut flour also contains lauric acid (although in smaller amounts). Lauric acid is a unique saturated fat that plays a number of beneficial roles in the body including increasing the strength of the immune system.
High in protein and fiber
Coconut flour contains much higher levels of protein and fiber than wheat flour. This will help you stay full longer, and potentially act as a natural weight loss aid.
High in manganese
Manganese is a trace mineral that helps improve the absorption of a number of nutrients. It also aids thyroid function, and helps with the regulation of blood sugar.
Baking With Coconut Flour
Coconut flour can be used to make essentially anything that you would traditionally use wheat flour, however, since coconut flour contains such high levels of fiber, baking recipes require more liquid in order to achieve the right consistency. For this reason it cannot be used as a direct substitute in recipes that call for wheat flour.
Fortunately there are an abundance of recipes available on the web that call for coconut flour only. Muffins, pies, bread, cookies , pancakes, and all kinds of desserts can be made with coconut flour. There are even cookbooks devoted to coconut flour recipes!
