Made from dried, ground coconut meal, Coconut Flour is a force to be reckoned with. No longer found in the depths of health-food stores collecting dust, Coconut Flour is making a name for itself due to its health benefits and flavor. With its airy texture, this superfood is used in baked goods for a lower-carb, high-fiber, and gluten-free alternative to white flour.
Clocking in with 5 grams of fiber per tablespoon, Coconut Flour is superior to the alternatives (whole-grain flour with only .8 grams per tablespoon, and white flour with only 2 grams per tablespoon). Being high in dietary fiber, Coconut Flour helps you feel full for longer, deters constipation, and enhances your colon health. In addition, 100 grams of coconut flour contains 19.3 grams of protein, (38% of our Recommended Daily Intake). Did we mention that due to its protein content, Coconut Flour is also a valuable ingredient for vegan/vegetarian bodybuilders looking to repair cell growth.
