Coffee flour, gluten free flour made from discarded coffee cherries

Added on 17 Apr, 2014 . There are .

A new, gluten free flour will soon be available. It's made from discarded coffee cherry pulp, which is the starting point of the process enabling you to enjoy your espresso, latte, Americano, etc.

Coffee flour claims to contain 5 times the fibre of whole grain wheat flour, 3 times more iron than fresh spinach, 3 times more protein than fresh kale, and 2 times the potassium of a banana, as well as less fat and more fibre than coconut flour.

Although not quite available yet, commercial rollout is planned in 2015. It's already been trialled successfully in some food products such as bread, cakes and pasta.
