Chestnut flour is a delicious, nutritious, gluten free flour alternative to wheat flour, almond flour, and others. Chestnuts are a starchy nut which makes it an ideal replacement to wheat flour because of their similarities in food chemistry reactions. In some ways it is healthier than white flour because it contains fewer carbohydrates and overall calories.
It is frequently used in French, Turkish, Corsican, and Italian cuisine as flour for cakes, cookies, breads, pastas, crepes, and more. The mild chestnut notes compliment flavors like coffee, sweet potato, sage, hazelnut, chocolate, fruits, prunes and figs.
Chestnut flour is made from whole, shelled, dried, ground chestnuts. The chestnuts for this chestnut flour were grown in Chile.
Chestnut flour should be stored in an airtight container in a refrigerator or freezer. If frozen, thaw at room temperature or in the refrigerator before using to avoid clumping and to release the best flavor notes.
