Gluten-free:Unlike regular grain flours, coconut flour is gluten-free. Gluten is a known inflammatory protein that causes serious digestive issues and other health conditions.
Aids metabolism:Coconut flour is a rich source of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs)—a type of fat that can cause weight loss. Its fibre and proteins give a sense of satiation, reducing food intake. This makes coconut flour ideal for people trying to lose weight.
Better digestion:Coconut flour has the second highest fibre content of most natural flours. Fibre or roughage assists the passage of food through the gut, reducing the pressure on the intestines. Its soluble and fermentable fibres also promote the growth of good bacteria in the gut.
Maintains blood sugar level:Coconut flour has a low glycemic index, which means it will not spike your blood sugar level. Fibre-rich foods also help slow down the rate at which sugar enters the bloodstream, thereby regulating blood sugar levels.
Promotes healthy heart:Consuming coconut flour prevents the rise of bad cholesterol LDL (Low Density Lipoproteins) and keeps your heart healthy.
For every cup of regular flour, use ¼ cup of coconut flour or increase the quantity of liquids in the recipe.
