Ingredients Glossary > Glossary > coconut flour

Gluten-free, allergy-friendly, and whole foods ingredients are sometimes confusing. Everyone knows what carrots are.  But what about arrowroot starch, coconut oil, umeboshi vinegar, or miso?  Here is a growing glossary of ingredients that may be slightly off the beaten path. 

Keep checking back for updates!

Search the glossary for entries containing:

A high fiber, low carb, grain-free flour made from finely ground coconut flesh.  Adds good body to baked goods.  Coconut flour is highly absorbent, and can not be used 1:1 as a replacement for other flours without modifying liquid in recipe.  Adds a light coconut flavor.  I have tried Bob's Red Mill, Wilderness Family Naturals, and Tropical traditions, and I like Tropical Traditions brand the best - it has a wonderful texture and flavor.
