Organic Coconut Flour (Gluten Free)
Our organic coconut flour is one of the most savory wheat flour alternatives you can find. Low in carbohydrates and high in fiber and protein, coconut flour's high nutritional value makes it a part of many diets, including low-carb and gluten-free.
About Coconut Flour
Made of ground-up, dried coconut meat, our coconut flour is organic and unsweetened, although the natural sugars in the coconut make the flour mildly sweet. Some consider coconut flour just as tasty as wheat flour, if not tastier, and it has the advantage of being completely gluten-free. Also, organic coconut flour contains more fiber than any other flour, making it especially filling and a popular choice for those trying to lose weight.
Baking with Coconut Flour
Baked goods made with organic coconut flour are light and soft, with rich textures. Coconut flour can be substituted for up to 20% of the wheat flour in a recipe. Many gluten-free recipes use it as a base, including for coconut flour bread, cakes, and muffins. For a boost of fiber and protein, you can add organic coconut flour to smoothies and shakes, or try it as a thickener for sauces and gravies. On the lower right-side of the page, you can find several delicious coconut flour recipes.
Our Registered Dietitian's Top Pick
Our Registered Dietitian and Health Nut likes to swap about one-quarter of the flour in quick breads and cookies for coconut flour. This flour is made purely from organic coconut and has more fiber than other flours! Each tablespoon has about 6 grams of fiber, that is triple the amount compared to whole wheat flour which has only 2 grams of fiber per serving.
Coconut Flour Health Benefits
1) 100% Gluten-Free: Coconut flour is naturally gluten-free, making it a popular ingredient for those who have gluten allergies or want to eliminate gluten from their diet. It has a naturally high nutritional content which makes it an excellent substitution for wheat flours.
2) Protein Powerhouse: With 14 grams of protein per 100 grams of flour, organic coconut flour contains more protein than white, wheat, rye flour, and cornmeal flours. Protein is an important component in building and maintaining healthy muscles.
3) Full of Fiber: Organic coconut flour contains 43 grams of fiber per 100 grams of coconut flour, double the amount found in wheat bran. Fiber helps sustain the feeling of fullness and helps slow the absorption of sugar into our bloodstream.
4) Heart-Healthy: A 2006 study published in Innovative Food Science & Emerging Technologies found that the fiber content present in coconut flour is effective at lowering cholesterol levels and reducing the risk for chronic diseases such as diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease.
5) Helps to Regulate Spikes in Blood Sugar: Fiber-rich foods such as coconut flour tend to have a low glycemic index because they are better at regulating blood sugar levels. A 2003 study published in The British Journal of Nutrition found that using increased amounts of coconut flour in baked goods lowered the glycemic index of the foods.

“How fun are these people! Life is too short to deal with crabs and these people sure aren't crabs. I ordered on a Tuesday and got my package in MI on Thursday. I've only opened a couple of the items but everything looks fresh and delicious. I'm thankful for the option of finding healthy, organic and raw options for my new "natural" diet that I've embarked upon!”

“You'd have to be NUTS not to do business with Nuts Online. This is my first order and one of the best, most user friendly experiences I've ever had. We WILL be back for more!”

“Hi I used to get nuts, etc. from you when you were in Newark to put in my baskets. I had a gift shop across the street in the Towers. Glad to have found you again. Your products were also great. I ordered on Friday and my package arrived this morning (Monday). I was not expecting it for a few days. I have been telling folks about your site and have referred some friends. ”

“Wow!!! Delivery was exceptionally fast! I'm a happy girl! Thank you!”
Bren, San Jose, CA April 20, 2011
“Great Service and products! Thanks for the free sample of Turkish Figs; delicious! Very impressed with your products, packaging and delivery. Love the trial sample option. Always nice to know you love something before investing in a large supply. I can't believe how reasonably priced your specialty items are. Some name brand stores charge nearly twice as much as you charge and your products are just as good or better! Great to know I can shop online for hard to find items without having to pay a premium price. I'm looking forward to a long relationship....”
