Coconut is Low Carb & Low Calorie: The term available carbohydrate refers to the portion of carbohydrates that have the potential to raise your blood sugar levels and provide calories, or energy. Available carbohydrates include both sugar and starches, but exclude dietary fiber. You can calculate the available carb content of any food simply by subtracting its fiber content from its total carb content. In the case of all-purpose white flour, the available carb content is 23.1 g per 1/4 cup and whole-wheat flour has 18.4 g of available carb per 1/4 cup, while coconut flour contains 7 g of available carbohydrate per 1/4 cup.
Because of its lower available carbohydrate content, coconut flour can prevent blood sugar spikes and help you maintain more even blood sugar levels after eating, which is especially helpful if you have diabetes or are trying to lose weight.
High Fiber Content: Coconut flour contains a lot more fiber compared to any other flour, with as much as 12 g per 1/4 cup, compared to only 3 g for the same serving of whole-wheat flour. You should get between 25 and 38 g of fiber a day, according to the “2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans,” to help you stay regular and prevent constipation. A higher fiber intake can also help you feel fuller with fewer calories, which is especially helpful if weight loss is a goal.
