What is Organic Coconut Flour and Why You Choose It??

Coconut flour is a soft flour produced from dried coconut meat. It is gluten and grain-free flour that can be used as a substitute for traditional grain based flours.  Natural coconut flour is high in fiber, a very rich source of protein and low in carbohydrates. It also distinctively has a naturally subtle sweet taste, especially beneficial when making bakery items and desserts.

How is Coconut Flour Produced?
  •   Producing coconut flour is traditionally a family business. Organic Coconut flour is extracted from the whitish kernel residue excreted after the extraction of Virgin Coconut Oil, which is why its protein and fiber content is especially rich.
  •  The process starts when handpicked coconuts from the Coconut Triangle in Sri Lanka are brought to our CPU’s and quality guaranteed facilities. Our farmers carefully inspect the coconut piles for imperfections and those that do not necessarily meet quality criteria are removed.
  • Workers use a mechanized grinder to remove the husk until only the kernel and brown paring are left. Another member of the farmer’s team relies on a heavy duty peeler to clear out the brown paring from the coconut.
  • The remaining white nut is cracked open and washed to remove foreign material. The cracked nuts climb a conveyer belt until a shredding machine, and then immediately oven dried to remove all moisture.
  • The rest of the shreds are used in a wet-mill, where, as soon as the coconut milk and coconut oil is extracted, the remaining meat is squeezed into small, tube shaped oil cakes, which the flour is ultimately produced from. Volt magnets and also metal detectors eliminate any metal contaminants, and the final product is flour. 

Organic Coconut Sugar… What Is It and Why Use It???

At Pancake Organics, coconut sugar is traditionally produced, starting with our farmers in Central Java, Indonesia. Coconut sugar is made from the sweet sap of coconut flowers.  This sugar contains natural minerals that support a healthy lifestyle for people who are active. Our bulk organic coconut sugar is 100% natural and non-GMO, which means the sugar is chemicals free and has no genetic modifications commonly seen in western food products. Coconut sugar also tastes great, with a slight hint of caramel, which enhances the flavor, especially when making bakery goods. Most importantly, Organic coconut sugar’s nutritional content is richer than any other sweeteners available commercially.
As the harmful effects of white sugar and high fructose corn syrup become increasingly more evident, people are turning to natural alternatives.Organic Coconut Sugar, with its very low glycemic index and superior mineral content has rapidly become one of these alternatives.You can use this sugar in the same way as you used white sugar, in a one-to-one ratio. Regular white table sugar does not contain any vital nutrients, and has been linked to heart disease, high blood pressure, and of course diabetes.
