Carrot powder/flour is a great alternative to traditional high carb, heavily processed white flours. Because of its high fiber content, carrot takes longer to digest and satiates appetite effectively. Heirloom carrot powder is made by cutting the whole carrot and drying it. The dry carrot is then milled into this fine flour/powder that has excellent cooking and baking applications. No sweeteners, No preservatives, No added sugar. Keep a shelf-stable supply of carrot in the pantry and toss into everything from pasta sauces, smoothies, cakes, cookies, gravy, batter, crumb-coats, bliss-balls, desserts, and soups!
Can be used savory or sweet. Carrot flour can be used to make bread, pasta, cakes, waffles, pies, and other baked goods. It can even be used in dessert crusts, crumbles, smoothies, protein bars, and energy balls. Normally 1 cup of wheat/ regular flour can be substituted entirely with carrot flour but note that it will depend on the recipe and the end product you are making too. Or you can reduce the amount of wheat flour used by replacing 1 cup of flour with 1/4 cup of carrot flour, plus any suitable grain-free flour for grain-free baking.
Try making: Carrot Fettucine and spring pasta ( with pasta (wheat) flour, replace the beetroot powder with carrot powder), Carrot bliss balls, Smoothies, Macaroni and cheese with carrot powder as the thickener.

The mill also organizes religious and cultural events to inculcate a sense of belonging to a bigger cause, bringing a sense of pride and community to the villagers who are using age-old knowledge, treading lightly, and making a living for their families, sustainably.
Priced for quality
Our products are not mass-produced in vast industrialised factories. So we do not enjoy the economies of scale that supermarket brands do. We pay the millers and farmers a fair price. Specifically, batch-crafted for New Zealand, Kokonati & Heirloom products are made with multigenerational expertise and knowledge to be the best quality they can be and so easily justify the premium price for the premium quality you are getting.
Packaging and recycling
200g. Dispose of the soft plastic bag in the supermarket collection bin. The reason we use a clear front and aluminum-backing bag for fruit flour is so you can see the product in the clear window before you buy it and because the product potency is preserved without exposure to air or moisture.
Precautions: Carrot is very healthy and considered safe for most. It is advisable to consult your healthcare provider or registered dietitian to make sure it’s safe to consume along with any prescription medications or existing medical conditions.
