What are the benefits of coconut flour? It’s high in nutrients, high fiber, and low in calories and can be used in so many recipes. It’s also very uncommon for coconut flour to cause any digestive or autoimmune responses as other grain flours can (aids in metabolism and high beneficial fiber prevents constipation)
It is lower in carbs than other common flours, such as wheat and corn, so it’s a better choice for diabetic, those watching their carb intake, and other people looking to maintain healthy blood sugar. Unlike higher-carb flours, coconut-derived flour has a much more mild effect on blood sugar levels. Plus, it comes with all of that beneficial fiber, fat, and protein, making it a very well-balanced flour that can help you to feel full longer and make you less likely to overeat.
A great choice for people looking to lower their cholesterol. As an excellent source of both soluble and insoluble fiber, this type of flour significantly reduced “bad” LDL cholesterol levels, total cholesterol, and triglycerides.
Naturally free from gluten, it makes it a great choice for anyone struggling with following a gluten-free diet due to celiac disease, gluten intolerance, or a personal preference to avoid gluten. It can be hard to follow a strict diet that truly contains no gluten, but coconut flour is a versatile ingredient that can make following these diets that much easier.
