Coconut Flour Brands

Commented on August 21, 2013

Hey does anyone have experience with different brands of coconut flour? I am looking at Coconut Secret and Tropical Traditions. You might say, "try both," however I live outside of the ever convenient USA and opinions would be super helpful before I make a bulk purchasing decision. Is one nuttier, more absorbent, better for frying, better for baking, than the other?

I'll be making "paleo" cake.

P.s. Yes I've made my own: Vitamix + dehydrator ??? commercially produced coconut flour. Nooot even close.

Ok, thanks. I live in Spain and in my internet searches for coco products I get lots of hits from South America. Maybe look south? check out some links here: https://www.google.com/search?num=20&safe=off&hl=en&site=webhp&q=harina+de+coco+precio&oq=harina+de+coco+precio&gs_l=serp.3..0i22i30.12179.13484.0.13709.7.6.0.1.1.0.161.592.2j4.6.0....0...1c.1.25.serp..2.5.305.flnpU-d06qc

Hi Eric, I'm in Mexico. Now logic would tell you that coconut products would be easily found here. however economics would remind you that the real market maker for these products is America. Thus most of the gest organics grown in MX are shipped north. Flour, meal and grated: depends on your use. Each is more refined than the next. Grated is good for adding chunkiness to baked goods or batters. Meal is just pulverized (like I can make in my Vitamix) it doesn't really rise or give a cakey texture. Flour, while vastly different from grain flours will make a really moist bread like pastry.

First, what country do you live in? There may be alternatives to shipping all the way from the USA. Secondly, I personally would like to know the difference between the flour, the meal and the grated.
