Things You Probably Didn't Know About Coconut Flour
What is coconut flour?
Coconut flour is a natural by-product of our factory's coconut oil production process. We cold-press fresh white coconut meat to produce extra virgin coconut oil. After removing from the cold-pressing equipment, dried coconut meat builds up and becomes coconut oil cakes. We then ground them up to make coconut flour. As a coconut product manufacturer, we use all parts of coconuts and turn them into valuable and healthy products. With a gift from nature like coconuts, nothing goes to waste.
The natural sugar in coconut meat is still retained and makes the flour mildly sweet. We can use coconut flour in various baking recipes, including bread, pancakes, cookies, muffins, and other baked goods.
Health Benefits of Coconut Flour

High fiber content supports digestion
Coconut flour is found higher in fiber than wheat flour. Consuming more fiber from foods helps improve digestion, grow healthy bacteria in your gut, and prevent diseases related to the digestion system.
Control blood sugar levels
It is another benefit of coconut flour resulting from its rich fiber content because it decreases the speed of sugar moving to your bloodstream. Coconut flour has a lower glycemic index than wheat flour, which is less likely to cause a spike in blood sugar levels.
