4 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD SWITCH TO COCONUT FLOUR

The coconut is one of the most amazing super-foods in nature. You can make from it a gluten-free flour that is very healthy. With coconut oil, you can do things you can’t do with any other oil and it has many health benefits. The coconut juice (milk) has many benefits for health, nutrition, and diet.

This post covers the benefits of the coconut flour. In the future, there will be posts about the oil and milk. At the end of the post, there is a list of recipes with coconut flour.

Why Should You Switch To Coconut Flour?

1. Coconut Flour Is Gluten-Free

In common grains such as wheat, rye, barley (groats), etc., there is a certain kind of vegetable protein called gluten. Gluten has some adverse effects on the human body, including arthritis, infections, organ damage, weight gain, and carb addiction.

Wheat is the most harmful of the lot.

There is a famous research that was done on the subject and published in the book “Wheat Belly”. If you care about yours and your family’s health, I strongly recommend reading this book. Isn’t it better to just make a gradual transition to something very healthy and nutritious?

Coconut flour, on the other hand, has no gluten and you can make almost all the things you make with these other flours.

2. Coconut flour is very rich in dietary fiber

In terms of its fiber content, a cup of coconut flour has the same amount of fiber as two cups of wheat bran!! (That you actually eat because it’s fiber).

A fiber-rich diet has some notable benefits:

  • Low cholesterol levels or help lowering cholesterol levels for people who already have high cholesterol.
  • Reduced absorption of sugar and maintaining uniform levels of blood sugar. It helps prevent type 2 diabetes or keep it balanced with a diet, and without pills, if you already have diabetes.
  • And there are even studies that prove that a fiber-rich diet can prevent colon cancer.
  • In addition, a fiber-rich diet prevents many unpleasant gastrointestinal effects, such as bloating, gases, irregular bowel movement, constipation, etc.

3. Coconut flour is very rich in protein

Coconut flour contains more vegetable protein than popular grain types such as wheat, rye, buckwheat or cornmeal, but does not contain gluten that part of them contain (wheat, rye) or the pure starch in others (cornflour, just pure starch = empty calories that the body immediately processes for sugar and fat), so it actually contains all the benefits but without the downsides.

4. It has a unique flavor that adds a special flavor to the food

While you can’t work with coconut flour as you work with gluten-containing flours, it’s impossible to knead it and most of the breads with it are more like a cake when they go into the oven, it’s flour with a very special flavor. After making a few things with coconut flour, you get addicted to the taste and it becomes a regular member of the kitchen.
