•1/2 cup melted coconut oil or butter
•1-2 tablespoons honey (optional, I usually leave it out)
•1/2 teaspoon sea salt
•3/4 cup coconut flour
I at 1/15th of a loaf pan of this bread, yes very thin, slice of this faux bread with kerry gold butter and I have heartburn now. I havent had that since BEFORE Paleo 30 started in January. What could be the culprit. It happened last night too about 30 minutes of eating the bread.
I have had all sorts of coconut forms (except flour) since january and eat all the other ingredients.....So could it just be the dry bread not digesting well?
"So could it just be the dry bread not digesting well?"
Wondering the same thing; glad you asked the question. My guy and I had the same experience (plus super-bloating) after eating "Angry Bread" - not coco bread, but I'm wondering if it's the same principle - 1/4 c. almond flour, 2 tbsp. coconut oil, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 egg.
Is it possible that the bread is swelling up and absorbing the liquids out of your stomach, or some other reason to cause more acid creep into your stomach? It seems pretty obvious from your description that the flour is the cause, since it's the only new thing in you diet. Dry things (like flour) like to absorb wet things. While the eggs provide a lot of moisture, they cook at low temp, so probably not absorbed much by the flour. Don't forget that "normal" grain breads are allowed to sit for a long time, and more liquids are involved, so the grains can absorb those liquids instead of the ones in your stomach. Did you let the stuff rest for long, where it could perhaps absorb liquid from the eggs, or not?
I agree. I can eat every form of coconut except the flour. I've tried coconut flour several times with the same result of stomach pains. I wonder if there is something in the processing? Or perhaps because it is what remains after oil and milk are removed is just fiber? I think I read somewhere that it is mostly inulin which can cause gas in some people, but I just read the fructan comment above and that makes sense as well.
