If you’re new to coconut flour, then hopefully we can help you to realise why it should become a food cupboard staple. You see, coconut flour is pretty unique and is ideal for those on gluten free and grain free diets. It’s also Paleo-friendly and nut-free, too.
What’s more, it’s high in fibre, iron and potassium and a great source of protein, plus low in salt – just a few of the reasons why it became one of 2016’s hottest food trends.

Our raw and organic, Fair Trade coconut flour is created from dried coconut meat. This is then cold pressed to extract the oil and the meat, or kernel, that’s left is now known as ‘the white cake’. This cake is now pulverized, before being dried out at a low temperature (below 45C) and ground to produce a soft, fine powder, or flour.
Being unprocessed and unbleached, it retains its naturally creamy colour and coconutty aroma.
As with most things that are coconuts, coconut flour is packed full of goodness.

Our coconut flour comes from the Philippines and, like all of our ingredients, is certified Fair Trade by the Fair Trade Sustainability Alliance (FairTSA).
The Fair Trade premium that goes back to coconut farmers is used to increase coconut production; improve the lives of the coconut farmers and their families; help the community; and enhance the environment.
Specifically, the money goes towards:
Future ideas include crop and livestock insurance; membership in the government’s universal health care programme; members’ enrolment in the social security system; and intercropping of high-value crops in between coconut rows.
Part of being Fair Trade also means that organic farming methods are adhered to for a sustainable and environmentally-friendly coconut production.
