Versatile Kokonati organic flour is made from the defatted coconut meal leftover after cold-pressing virgin coconut oil. A healthier alternative to flour from grains, research suggests it is naturally rich in dietary fiber.
Uses Use in grain-free baking, crumbing, even as a porridge for a nutritious high fiber breakfast. Can also be used as a thickener for sauces, curries and soups. Great to mix and set in raw food and slices. For baking, as a rule of thumb use 1 egg for every 1/4 cup of coconut flour. 1 cup wheat flour can be replaced with 1/4 to 1/3 cup of coconut flour.
Flavor Aroma and taste is mildly coconut. An off-white flour free of sodium caesinate.
Ingredient 100% powdered defatted coconut meal.
Storage Keep airtight in the pantry, away from sunlight and damp. Use a dry spoon to scoop out. Use within 3-4 months from opening. With a best before of two years from the manufacture date, coconut flour remains safe to use for even longer periods as long as it is stored with minimal exposure to light, air, and moisture. This is why Kokonati coconut flour is packed at the origin, in the very plantations the coconuts are harvested from, to seal the freshness and reduce exposure from day 1.

Benefits Coconut flour contains more protein per serving than the many white flours, rye, or cornmeal and about the same protein content as buckwheat. It contains just as much protein as whole wheat flour, even though it doesn’t contain gluten protein. The high fiber content of coconut flour helps provides a feeling of satiety and ideal for low-carb eating plans.

100+ years of coconut expertise Our Coconut flour is made by a third-generation coconut miller an engineer by profession who has fine-tuned the process of extracting the best quality cold-pressed virgin coconut oil leaving behind raw coconut meal which makes this fine flour. Backed by generations of coconut expertise, and certified with ISO and Organic standards, the mill plays a vital role in the employment, welfare and wellbeing of the village community. The children of our workforce are provided with school books and stationery for the entire school year! The mill also operates a not-for-profit brick and tile factory and a metal workshop that provides work for the villagers, building material for the community, and keeps the factory equipment ship-shape! Staff quarters are also provided for those who travel far from home. What’s more, we even grow our own organic vegetables onsite so the factory kitchen can provide a wholesome healthy lunch buffet for all at work.
Price for quality Our products are not mass-produced in vast industrialised factories. So we do not enjoy the economies of scale that supermarket brands do. We pay the millers and farmers a fair price. Specifically, batch-crafted for New Zealand, Kokonati products are made with multigenerational expertise and knowledge to be the best quality they can be and so easily justify the premium price for the premium quality you are getting.
Loyalty Just as we are fiercely loyal to the millers and families we work with, we also want to reward you, our customer loyalty. So every time you purchase a Kokonati product you also collect rewards points that can be redeemed for a discount at checkout. Remember to sign up for the reward points (the tab on the far mid-right edge of this screen).
