Posted on April 17, 2015 by PBC Admin | 0 Comments

If you’re new to the Paleo lifestyle, you may be wondering what advantages Paleo Baking Co. mixes have to offer. Beyond the simplicity of adding a few wet ingredients, our mixes offer healthy yet affordable alternative to traditional baking. At the newly reduced price of $9 (and free shipping!) you don’t have to break the bank to create healthy baked goods for your friends and family.

With so many alternative flours in the marketplace, we wanted to break down some of the amazing benefits to our mixes and the health benefits our ingredients pack compared to traditional grain flours.

Organic Coconut Flour: This is the foundation for all our mixes. Certified Organic, Kosher and Non-GMO Project Verified, our coconut flour is derived from the Philippines where they thrive in their natural environment. These are some of our favorite benefits to utilizing coconut flour.

  • Rich in Dietary Fiber – reduces risk of heart disease, lowers cholesterol, and guards against cancer and diabetes.
  • High in Beneficial Fats (the majority being MCTs) – MCTs have been shown to boost metabolism, making coconut flour suitable for weight loss diets.
  • Packed with Protein – more than any other flour alternatives, making coconut flour an ideal source of protein for vegans and vegetarians as well as bodybuilders looking for cell repair and growth.

    Hazelnut Flour: Hazelnut flour is the next most prominent ingredient in our mixes. Interesting fact, hazelnuts come from two regions in the world; Turkey/Greece/Italy & fortunately enough, Willamette Valley, Oregon where we get ours from. Here’s why we love working with hazelnut flour.

    • Provides a rich nutty flavor! 
    • Contains heart healthy fats & good source of oleic acid 
    • Contains phytopchemicals known as flavonoids – which support brain health, improve circulation and reduce symptoms associated with allergies 
    • Rich source of vitamins & minerals

    Organic Cocoa Powder: Our Alkalized Cocoa Powder (also known as Dutch Process Cocoa Powder) is certified Organic, Kosher, Fair Trade Certification and Non-GMO Project Verified. The “Dutch Process” gives them their unsweetened flavor and a darker, richer shade of brown.

    Additionally cocoa powder contains;

    • Contains flavonoids that function as antioxidants to prevent inflammation
    • High mineral count – mostly made up of iron, manganese, magnesium and zinc

    We take pride in sourcing the highest quality ingredients for our mixes and continuously stay up to date on the latest research and quality control.
