"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! 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!"
What we thought: Another slam dunk from Tropical Traditions! This coconut flour was super versatile and it smelled absolutely divine! It was great for muffins and cookies and since it naturally has a slightly sweet flavor we were able to add less sugar than usual which is a definite plus! We also added it into our chocolate milk shakes after seeing that it was great for adding a little protein and fiber to shakes and smoothies and I was pleasantly surprised! The combination of the chocolate and the light coconut flavor was so yummy! I love finding delicious ways to supplement the kid's snacks with a little extra of these important nutrients and the milkshake was a perfect example of how something could be improved nutritiously without altering the taste to where the kiddos wouldn't eat it.
