30 Bananas a Day!

Hi all!

I would appreciate pros and cons on coconut flour. I use it occasionally in some recipes because where I live we don't get young, good coconut. It is not like I really need it, but sometimes when I make something for other people, who don't really care about whether food is processed or not, I use it. To me, coconut flour seems to be so processed and doubtfully raw. I would like to hear if anyone knows more about it.

Thanks!

No experience with it, but your initial reaction as being super processed seems reasonable

Thanks Windlord! Yap... seems like it is. :)

Coconut flour is a soft, flour like product made from the pulp of a coconut. It’s actually a by-product made during the coconut milk making process. When making coconut milk, you have to soak coconut meat. That pulp is then dried out and ground into this powdery flour.

It has a lot of fat, but it's not obvious fat because it's a powder so it's easy to eat too much fat.

You can find raw.  http://www.iherb.com/Coconut-Secret-Raw-Coconut-Flour-1-lb-454-g/24097

 When you click on this site, scroll down for loads of info.  Also, the reviews are helpful.

Hi Ali! Thanks for the explanation. However, according to cronometer it is pretty low in fat... 

Yeah, you're right.  Higher in protein.

Still not good - high protein no good. :)

So don't eat it. 

So easy. Done! :) I still have some in the kitchen and my sister would love to get that. :)

They do go rancid, but not right away. 

Also, a friend of mine makes coconut milk (with a juicer I think) and then uses the fiber to make coconut flour.

I also believe it is rancid. 

ok, ok, you've talked me out of it! :)

Probably don't give it to your sister then :-)
