Here are a few answers to some commonly asked questions regarding organic flours:
Is buying organic flour worth it?
Organic flour is most definitely worth the purchase! It’s common to find that many regular flours are bleached, which makes them artificial and less great in the taste department. Organic flours come with fantastic flavor and are all natural which means no chemicals or artificially processed ingredients!
You can even experience new flavors with organic flours with anything from nutty to sweet. Seasoned bakers and cooks will be excited to explore the flavor combinations and possibilities that organic flours have to offer!
Are your organic flours gluten free?
Our organic coconut flour and cassava (tapioca) flours are all gluten free which makes them great alternatives to regular flours. We know that many have gluten sensitivities and allergies, which is why each of our naturally gluten free batches are still individually tested.
How is organic coconut flour made?
Organic coconut flour is made from ground coconut meat. The coconut meat is soaked and then dried to be ground in to a powder consistency. No additives and no bleaching – this flour is the way to go!
Is organic coconut flour keto friendly?
Organic coconut flour is not only naturally sweet and rich in texture, it is also keto friendly! Coconut flour is actually quite ideal for those who follow the keto diet as it is low in carbs and high in fiber. Organic coconut flour is also naturally gluten free and more nutritious than many wheat-based products.
How much coconut flour can I substitute with regular flour?
When it comes to baking and cooking, you can substitute anywhere from 10-30% of regular flour with coconut flour. Some recipes can also be made with 100% coconut flour.
Keep in mind that coconut flour can be quite absorbent which means that a little can go a long way when it comes to the absorption of liquids in your recipes. You can play around with increasing liquids or lessening the amount of flour.
Overall, organic flours are a great option for making a healthy swap in your day to day cooking
