Coconut: Gluten-free and delicious too
Over the last decade, the hairy coconut has become wildly popular and thankfully, it’s naturally gluten-free! You can buy coconut as an oil, butter, flour, sugar and flakes... and it’s packed with nutrients! In gluten-free baking, coconut flour is used most often in blends of other flours. It’s made from dried, defatted coconut meat and is packed with fiber but low in carbohydrates. Coconut flour gives baked goods a rich texture and adds natural sweetness, which allows you to cut down on the amount of sugar. Or use coconut milk in soups, stews, curries, beverages and baked goods.
