Introduction to Our Ingredients

We at The Happy Belly use several high quality ingredients in our gluten free grain free mixes.  Among them are organic coconut flour, arrowroot flour, Real Salt (sea salt), organic coconut palm sugar, and gluten/grain free baking soda. 
Our products offer a nutritious and delicious alternative to gluten free products that are often filled with cheap grains, starches, and  refined sugars which are damaging to the digestive tract and raise blood sugar levels to an unhealthy high level. 
We use a low amount of natural unrefined coconut palm sugar (about half the amount in a traditional recipe), which is much lower on the glycemic index than other sugars and contains many trace minerals.  
Coconut flour is a low carb high fiber flour which is derived from coconut and has a mild coconut flavor.   It has been shown in studies that it does not interfere with the absorption of nutrients and also contributes to maintaining stable blood sugar levels.
Arrowroot flour is the only starch product with calcium ash, making it easy to digest and useful for maintaining proper acid and alkali balance. It also helps add a great texture to gluten free baked goods.
Our mixes are suitable for a gluten free diets as well as grain free diets such as Paleo and Primal.  Replacing traditional baked goods with our products may also help contribute to weight loss as part of a healthy lifestyle change. 
 Please contact us with any questions or suggestions.  We are a work in progress and will never stop trying to improve the quality of our product!
