What is Coconut Flour?
Coconut flour is a delicious, gluten-free alternative to traditional grain flours, with a distinct coconut flavor and naturally sweet taste. It is made by drying the sweet pulp of fresh coconuts, where it is then finely ground into a soft, nutrient-abundant powder-like flour.
Key Highlights of Coconut Flour
Low Carb and High Protein:

Viva Naturals Organic Coconut Flour provides a wholesome 2g of protein per 2 tablespoons.
Studies have shown that a diet low in fiber may increase the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and gastrointestinal conditions over the long-term. Viva Naturals Organic Coconut Flour provides 5g of dietary fiber per 2 tablespoons, helping you achieve your recommended daily fiber intake.
