Tropical Traditions organic coconut flour is fiber from the coconut meat after most of the oil has been extracted to make Virgin Coconut Oil. It is certified organic, unsweetened, and has not been treated with sulfites. Tropical Traditions organic coconut flour is high in dietary fiber and protein, and is gluten-free. It has more fiber than gluten-based grains. Tropical Traditions organic coconut flour can be added to standard wheat-based recipes to add extra fiber, by substituting 10-30% of the grain-based flour with our coconut flour. Some recipes, such as muffins and quick breads, can be accomplished with 100% Tropical Traditions organic coconut flour and therefore be 100% gluten-free! (See some free recipes below.) Since organic coconut flour contains natural sugar from the coconut meat, baked goods need less sugar added. The organic coconut flour has a mildly sweet coconut taste!
Tropical Traditions organic coconut flour also contains over 19% non-gluten protein! Therefore, it makes an excellent addition to shakes and smoothies where fiber and protein are needed. Or simply dissolve a spoonful in water as a high-fiber drink with a coconut flavor! This organic coconut flour is very versatile and very tasty. Sprinkle it over your favorite dishes to add a wonderful coconut flavor, use it as a thickener in soups and sauces - the possibilities are endless!
I love Tropical Traditions. I have not tried a bad product from them yet!!!
I am a huge coconut fan. Anything coconut to me is yummy!!!
When I was given the chance to try their Coconut Flour, I instantly started thinking of interesting recipes to use it in!
I first started by making brownies. I used the coconut flour, and added extra coconut on top. YUMMY!!!
Then we tried mixed fruit muffins with fresh strawberries and blueberries. Again delicious.
We have a little bit of the flour left, so Ben is going to try it with a main dish. He hasn't figured out what yet, but I can't wait!!
Tropical Traditions is offering one of you the chance to try the coconut flour as well!!!
