Why you should use TIANA Organic Coconut Flour
TIANA is the only Certified Fair trade Organic Coconut Flour available
TIANA Organic Coconut Flour is creamy in colour with a slight deliciously nutty taste and odour.
Organic Flour Certified in the UK, EU and USA
TIANA Organic Coconut Flour is made from finely ground organic coconut meat with most of the moisture and fat removed.
TIANA Coconut Flour is 100% pure, not bleached or treated with sulphites or any other chemicals, which is why it has a slightly creamy colour and rich in important nutrients. Coconut flours that are available on the market are mostly white colour because they were treaded with chemicals; the texture can also be very varied.
Some people avoid wheat and grains to cut down on their carbohydrate intake to improve their health or to lose excess weight. TIANA coconut flour is ideal for low carbohydrate diets as it primarily contains indigestible fibre and is a low carbohydrate product.
Suitable for low carbohydrate diets
Low in calories
There are two types of carbohydrates in foods: digestible and non-digestible. Digestible carbohydrate consists of starch and sugar and provides calories. Digestible carbohydrates are of concern to most people as the starch and sugars turn into fat within our bodies and when eaten in excess, contribute to insulin resistance, obesity and diabetes.
TIANA Organic Coconut Flour consists mainly non-digestible carbohydrates, which is dietary fibre. Fibre is not broken down or digested in humans and provides no calories, promoting good health.
Since you cannot digest dietary fibre, you do not derive any calories from it. Dietary fibre is calorie free.
High in Fibre
Enjoy a healthy eating lifestyle with TIANA Coconut Flour: only 3 - 4 tablespoons of our organic flour a day provides 100% Recommended Daily Allowance of fibre.
It is the finest flour, which has a nice taste therefore it will be very easy for you to increase your Daily Fibre Allowance by sprinkling it on your breakfast cereal or added to porridge, soup, stews and casseroles.
TIANA Coconut Flour is very easy to mix with other flour when cooking or baking; just add 10% to 20% of our coconut flour and follow your recipe as usual.
Why you should rigorously maintain your high fibre intake?
Our intestines contain a lot of bacteria – most of which is very beneficial to us. Good bacteria flourish when we eat high-fibre foods. Fibre is their primary source of nourishment. When your diet contains an adequate amount of fibre, the good bacteria are happy and they dominate your digestive tract. If you do not eat enough fibre, the good bacteria decrease in number. Harmful bacteria and yeasts flourish as they thrive on sugar and refined carbohydrates and damage the intestinal wall and produce toxic by-products that can be absorbed into the bloodstream and sent through the body. These can lead to food allergies, nutrient deficiencies, abnormal growths, candidacies and an assortment of health problems that appear unrelated to the digestive function such as arthritis, dermatitis and depression.
Good source of protein
TIANA Organic Coconut Flour is rich in protein and it has as much protein as whole wheat flour. It has 19g of protein per 100g product.
Naturally Gluten Free Flour
Some people cannot tolerate gluten, which damages the gut lining and prevents normal digestion and nutritional absorption and as a result your body will have deficiencies of vitamins and minerals – this is known as coeliac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis.
Gluten and wheat intolerance give you symptoms such as bloating, cramps, diarrhoea, constipation, chronic fatigue (ME), depression, chest pain, anaemia, thyroid problems and others.
TIANA Organic Coconut Flour is naturally gluten free and is perfect for those on a gluten or wheat free diet.
Not all gluten free baked food which is available on the market tastes good but now you will be able to make your own delicious gluten free baked foods using TIANA Coconut Flour, which can also provide you with good source of protein.
Why Gluten Free diet is a healthy diet
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, barley and oats, which is a very sticky, elastic substance. Gluten is important component in making soft breads, as it holds the flour together; it gives a smooth texture and is used making sauces, dressings and tinned meat.
Although we eat food containing gluten every day, it is not essential for our health. There are many countries where populations eat mainly cereals such as rice, maize and millet, which do not contain gluten and people having food without gluten are healthy. Many foods are naturally gluten free such as meat, fish, all fruits and vegetables, beans, rice, eggs, dairy products, soya, sugar, oils and fat and fresh and dry yeast, which people enjoy eating, therefore a gluten free diet is regarded as a healthy diet.
Gluten Free alternatives to wheat – What is the difference?
There are many naturally gluten free alternatives to wheat such as rice flour, tapioca flour, potato flour, corn flour, soya flour, chickpea flour, buckwheat flour, millet flour, linseed and sago.
Most gluten free alternatives to wheat do not taste good, unless they are loaded with flavour enhances and sweeteners. The problem with most of these products is that if they are gluten free, they are usually high in carbohydrates, if they are low in carbohydrates, they usually contain added gluten.
Most people want to avoid certain foods but the alternatives aren't much better.
TIANA Organic Coconut Flour is a naturally gluten free alternative to wheat that is delicious, 100% pure, organic, high in fibre and low in digestible carbohydrates.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans
TIANA Organic Coconut Flour provides good source of protein and important nutrients, which are important for vegetarian and vegan diets.
Due to the high content of fibre that increases the yield of baked products up to 50% (dough weight) TIANA Coconut Flour is very economical in use, for example, only 35g will make 6 muffins or only 3 tablespoons makes 8-10 pancakes.
