Coconut flour contains almost double the amount of fiber found in wheat bran. Fiber has numerous health benefits, from reducing the absorption of sugar into the blood stream, to lowering cholesterol.
Coconut flour does not contain the gluten protein and is a significant protein content. Coconut flour contains more protein per serving than the other leading flours, such as white, rye or cornmeal. It contains just as much protein as wheat flour, even though it doesn't contain the gluten protein.
