What benefits does coconut flour have in reference to other wheat substitute flours?
Coconut flour is gluten free and high in fiber - double the amount found in wheat bran. Coconut flour is 58% fiber, and what bran is only 27% fiber.
It is high in protein, more protein per serving than white, rye or cornmeal flours and just as much protein as wheat flour.
A while ago I asked a question about uses and got some great answers. Am still a huge fan of it and sprinkle it on a lot of food because of the fiber content. And I love the flavor it imparts.
