Coconut flour is made from fresh organic coconut meat. The meat is dried and defatted and then finely ground into a powder similar to conventional flour.
Coconut flour is a rich source of balance protein containing all 8 essential amino acids. With almost 20% protein it has far more than wholemeal grain flours and contains none of the gluten.
Coconut flour contains both soluble and insoluble fibre, both essential for a healthy diet.
