    • Coconut flour: This flour is prepared by grinding dry coconut meat. It has a dry texture and therefore should be used in combination with other flours. Coconut flour is rich in fibre and protein.

    • Chickpea flour: Also known as gram flour, it is a common ingredient in Indian cuisine. It has a moist texture and therefore goes well with baked food items. Chickpea flour has a unique nutty flavour. It is made from ground chickpeas and is therefore rich in protein and fibre.

    • Buckwheat flour: Buckwheat flour is gluten free and can create a dense texture in baked items. It is a pseudo-cereal and has become a popular health food recently. This flour has a nutty flavour and is quite suitable for baking, in combination with other flours.
