Can I eat nut flours?

Nut flours are not BLE-friendly. People frequently ask why they can’t use nut flour in baking or breading when nut butter is allowed. The reason is that there’s no blood sugar spike with nut butters as there can be with ground flours. The act of mastication (chewing) is important for the digestive process, and chewing activity is greatly reduced by eating flour of any kind. If you are compelled to use nut flours, proceed with caution. It may be worth an inquiry around whether the addition of that food would be in one’s best interest. Of course, the higher you are on the Susceptibility Scale, the more difficulty you may have with these food items. Both nut butters and flours can be triggering, and we need to draw a line somewhere, so that’s where it’s been drawn for now.
