at a glance:

This is, without any doubt, our quality manager’s most favorite product.  Coconut flour is won parallel to the pressing process of coconut oil.  For this purpose the fresh coconut pulp is grated, dried and subsequently pressed.  This to a large part deoiled pulp is then finely ground.  The end result is excellent gluten-free flour, full of fiber, minerals and a significant content of proteins.

Coconut flour offers the biggest nutritional diversity amongst all coconut products. Its extremely high fiber content enhances any meals prepared with it and can therefore specifically contribute to and cover the daily requirement of fiber intake. For example, the recommended daily amount of 30 g of fiber is already covered by the consumption of 70 g of coconut flour. In addition, coconut flour also supplies a substantial amount of various essential minerals, such as potassium, selenium, zinc and magnesium, which support many important functions of our body.  At the same time, coconut flour is low on sodium, which in effect balances off ideally the over-salted foods of our regular cuisine.
The natural content of coconut oil in the flour supplies quick and sustaining energy through its medium-chain triglyceride.
Apart from that, because of its vegetarian source of protein, coconut flour also offers a completely GM-free alternative to soya.
Because of its powdery form, coconut flour can be easily dosed and gives an aromatic nuance to many dishes.
It is not easy to find such a delicious product with such a high content of fiber! Just a relatively small amount of this flour, enables you to take in all the fibers your body needs.

Our coconut flour comes from the Philippines where the production of Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) is still done in accordance to the traditional art, which has been passed on from generation to generation.  Why the Philippines?  …this is a company story – learn more about it => links to about us (über uns  sub category: – our coconut expert and founder.

Coconut flour is produced in many Asian countries.  Very often, it is much whiter or considerably darker than our Tropicai coconut flour which has a slight sandy color. Dark flour exhibits too high and uncontrolled temperatures during the pressing process. Very white coconut flour generally has a relatively high content of fat remnants. Quality wise this type of flour comes closer to fat-reduced coconut flakes which makes proper handling and usage rather difficult. Not only is the coconut flour from our partners in the Philippines richer in valuable nutrients (due to considerably more careful deoiling- and pressing procedures), but it also upgrades every pastry, bread, muesli and pancake.

Coconut flour is gluten-free and therefor possesses no natural “binding components” like normal flour. However, it enhances every kind of food enormously due to its tasty flavor, its high minerals and fiber content, its noteworthy protein content and its light natural sweetness (less sugar needed in desserts and puddings) One can mix it well with spelt or wheat and even  reserve it  for the next cake, waffle, bread, or even quiche.  Mixing properties are 80% flour to 20-25% coconut flour.

For example, if you take 500 gr flour for a cake, just reduce the amount by 100 gr and replace it with coconut flour. You can bake or cook delicious meals with it.

Suggestion: Add more fluid to the dough as the coconut flour absorbs more fluid

There are many gluten-free recipes in which coconut flour functions as a definite enrichment due to its taste as well as its nutritive values. No other gluten-free flour tastes so good and additionally supplies so many nutrients. Of course, one can bake just with coconut flour. In such gluten-free recipes, one can use eggs, coconut mouse, chocolate or even cheese as a binding component.

Note: Cannot be used as a 100% replacement for regular flour.  However, as a thickener for gravies, for instance, it’s possible

 

Fibers are important for a healthy bowl movement.  The body hardly metabolizes them (indigestible) thus ensure that everything remains in motion.

 

No other flour has so much fiber content as coconut flour.  Average: 43gr fiber in 100 gr flour.

Which minerals are found in the exotic coconut flour?

15
K

Kalium

Der Mineralstoff Kalium wird vorwiegend über Getreide, Obst und Gemüse aufgenommen. Es unterstützt das Nervensystem und die Muskelfunktionen des menschlichen Körpers. Auch der Wasserhaushalt und der Blutdruck werden durch Kalium reguliert. Neben pflanzlichen Lebensmitteln sind auch Fleisch und Fisch eine beliebte Kaliumquelle. 

34
Se

Selen

Das essentielle Spurenelement Selen ist nicht nur in Schweinefleisch und Fisch enthalten, sondern auch in Steinpilzen und Nüssen. Mit seinen vitalisierenden Eigenschaften sorgt es für die Entgiftung des Körpers und die Abwehr freier Radikale. Genauso wie die Vitamine A, C und E gehört Selen damit zu den Antioxidantien, die schädliche Stoffwechselprodukte bannen. Selen beeinflusst außerdem die Arbeit der Schilddrüse positiv und stärkt die Abwehrkräfte. Dem Spurenelement wird sogar eine stimmungsaufhellende Wirkung zugeschrieben. Neben Kokosmehl sind auch die Milch und das Öl der Kokosnuss, Hirse, Sesam und Sonnenblumenkerne gute Selenlieferanten.

30
Zn

Zink

Der Alleskönner Zink ist ein wichtiges Spurenelement, das für den Stoffwechsel des menschlichen Körpers eine überlebenswichtige Rolle spielt. Es kann nicht lange gespeichert und vom Körper nicht selbst gebildet werden, weshalb eine ausreichende Zufuhr über die Nahrung unabdingbar ist.

12
Mg

Magnesium

Der Mineralstoff Magnesium hält Leib und Seele zusammen. Es ist verantwortlich für die Aktivierung von ungefähr 300 Enzymen im Körper und trägt maßgeblich zum Aufbau von Knochen, Zähnen und Sehnen bei. Jeder Erwachsene sollte täglich 300-400 Milligramm Magnesium mit der Nahrung aufnehmen. Für Schwangere, Sportler, Senioren und kranke Menschen können diese Werte abweichen. Wer schon einmal einen Wadenkrampf aufgrund von Magnesiummangel hatte, weiß wozu der Mineralstoff dient. Wer sich gesund ernährt und Lebensmittel wie Vollkorn- oder Kokosmehl, Haferflocken, grünes Gemüse, Sesam, Nüsse und Sonnenblumenkerne regelmäßig verzehrt, fördert die eigene Konzentrationsfähigkeit und den Energiestoffwechsel.
