Coconut flour is one of the lesser-known forms of coconut, but it acts as a versatile and highly nutritious alternative to wheat flour and nut-based flours such as almond. As a low carbohydrate flour, it is ideal for baking in both sweet and savoury dishes, and a great choice for food manufacturers who are seeking to create gluten-free, paleo food products.
Bulk Coconut Flour – What is it and how is it used?
Coconut flour is the dried flesh from a coconut, ground down into a fine powder. The coconut meat is removed from the coconut shell, strained and separated from the milk, and then baked at a low temperature until it becomes completely dry. The resulting product is then finely ground to produce a flour that is purely made of coconut.
Bulk coconut flour is highly absorbent, therefore extra liquid (eg. eggs or water) may be required if it is being used as a substitute for wheat-based flour. The upside is that only a small amount of coconut milk is required to produce a delicious sweet or savoury dish.
Here are some common uses for coconut flour:
– Breadcrumbs substitute
– Pizza crust
– Thickener for soups
Why use coconut flour compared with other flour alternatives?
Coconut flour is widely considered as more nutritious than wheat-based flour as it is less processed and does not require fortification. Almond flour is another popular alternative, as it is high in nutrients and also gluten-free. Coconut flour is, however, higher in fibre and lower in calories than the almond equivalent. Plus it is nut-free, making it a safe choice for those with nut allergies.
Bulk coconut flour – What are the health benefits?
The health benefits of coconut flour are very impressive, and are increasingly sought-after by health-conscious consumers:
1. High in fibre – The meat of the coconut is extremely high in fibre. In fact, it supplies over 60% of dietary fibre. This fibre helps move toxins and waste along the digestive track.
2. Aids digestive health – Coconut flour is nutrient dense, to help maintain gut health.
3. Boosts metabolism – Coconut flour contains large amounts of medium chain saturated fats (MCFA), which the body can use for energy.
4. Assists in maintaining stable blood sugar levels – As a low glycemic food, coconut flour help maintain steady blood sugar levels. This is incredibly important for diabetics and people aiming to maintain a healthy body weight.

Coconut Milk vs Coconut Cream
So what are the differences between coconut milk and coconut cream? They are essentially made from the same ingredients, but coconut cream has a higher fat content than coconut milk, therefore it is thicker. Your choice will depend on the consistency you are trying to achieve for your product.
Bulk Coconut Milk and Coconut Cream – What are the health benefits?
Coconut milk and cream are a great dairy-free alternative to cow’s milk based products. Coconut is rich in fibre and packed with many beneficial vitamins and minerals. Coconut milk contains lauric acid which is a medium-chain fatty acid (MCFA). Medium-chain fatty acids are unlike other fats because they are metabolised differently by the body. These fatty acids increase metabolism and are not stored within the body but used as a quick source of energy by the liver.
Coconut milk is also additive-free, and is processed via UHT (Ultra-High Temperature) to sterilize the liquid food and prolong it’s shelf life.
Australian Bulk Coconut Milk Suppliers – What to look out for, and why buy in bulk?
In order to ensure the high quality and purity of the raw coconut ingredients, it is essential to source a quality wholesaler of bulk coconut milk and coconut cream. Ask questions about whether the manufacturer meets international quality standards for food processing (e.g. ISO 22000) and that the products are packaged correctly to make sure the natural benefits of the coconut are not compromised.
Bulk coconut milk and bulk coconut cream purchases can deliver your business sizeable savings over the long term. Bulk coconut milk and cream can be purchased in 20 litre packages from Franklands, and all bulk products are competitively priced in the market. Franklands always strives for reliable and speedy delivery of products, Australia-wide.
One of the main benefits of coconut as an ingredient is its versatility and the wide variety of “forms” it is available in. Whether it is desiccated, flaked, flour, powder, milk or oil the possibilities for food manufacturers to add coconut to their final products are endless. Learn more in this blog about desiccated coconut – how it differs from other forms of coconut, it’s uses and the multiple health benefits.
Bulk desiccated coconut – What is it and how is it used?
Bulk desiccated coconut is made from coconut flesh and is finely ground, with most of the moisture removed. Coconut flesh is dehydrated and grated without the use of preservatives, additives or sweeteners. Desiccated coconut is widely used by food manufacturers as a product ingredient due to its uniquely subtle sweetness and blending properties.
Here are some typical dishes that desiccated coconut may be added to:
- Bliss balls
- Museli bars
Desiccated coconut wholesalers such as Franklands Foods also offer a low fat option, where the fat is removed from the white meat of the coconut before it is dehydrated. This is perfect for food manufacturers seeking to offer low fat product options for their customers.
Desiccated coconut versus Shredded coconut
The first main difference between desiccated and shredded coconut is moisture content – shredded coconut retains more moisture than desiccated due to the dehydrating process. The second difference is the shape of the coconut. Shredded coconut is processed into thin strips or strands, whereas desiccated coconut granules are much smaller.
Bulk desiccated coconut – The Health benefits
Desiccated coconut contains all the health benefits typically associated with coconut, as it is rich in a number of essential nutrients such as fibre, manganese, copper and iron. It is dairy free, gluten-free, cholesterol-free and has a low glycemic index, which helps to promote healthy blood sugar levels.
As Australian consumers become more health-conscious, coconut products are increasingly sought-after by vegans and people seeking out dairy and gluten-free products.
Desiccated coconut wholesalers such as Franklands Foods can offer food manufacturers excellent deals when buying in bulk. Franklands offers desiccated coconut in multiple packing sizes, from 200 gram through to 50 kg. Franklands has a local sales presence in Melbourne and is able to offer competitive prices and fast delivery Australia-wide.

Coconut Oil Spray – Convenience in a can
Coconut oil in a spray form is a highly convenient way to store and use coconut oil in food. Traditional coconut oil stored in a jar, for example, will solidify when stored in temperatures below 26 degrees celcius. Coconut oil spray always stays in a liquid form in a can, making it quick and easy to apply directly to food, a fry pan or a baking tray. As the coconut oil is in a spray form, there is also less wastage of the product. Franklands coconut oil spray comes in a 225g can, and can be ordered in bulk by food wholesalers and retailers.
Coconut Oil Spray – The health benefits
Coconut oil spray contains all the nutritional benefits of coconut, making it an increasingly popular choice amongst health-conscious Australians. Coconut contains medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) which are metabolised efficiently by the liver and create an energy boost. They are less likely to be absorbed by the body and stored as fat. Coconut oil spray also contains lauric acid, which lowers inflammation and is anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. Coconut also contains magnesium, potassium and iron; minerals that are vital for optimal health and also improve circulation, while reducing muscle tension and stress. Coconut is gluten and dairy free and suitable for people on a vegan diet.
Organic Coconut Oil Spray – A versatile alternative
Coconut oil spray is a highly versatile product and a great tasting alternative to oils commonly used in cooking. Some common uses for the spray are:
- Asian style cooking
- Salad dressings
