This versatile flour is finely ground from dried coconut meat, with a lower glycemic index than most traditional flours. Its rich texture and natural sweetness make it great for baking. Our coconut flour is certified gluten-free. Coconut flour can be substituted for up to 1/3rd of wheat flour in standard recipes. Due to its high fiber contentâ€¨it absorbs lots of liquid, so increase the liquid in theâ€¨recipe by an equal amount. Because it is gluten-free, it is necessary to add egg, chia gel, or even substitute a small amount of tapioca flour to assure that it binds properly.
