Storing Coconut Flour

I just opened my bag of Coconut Flour and was wondering what is the best way to store after opening to maintain the freshness? Refrigerator? Freezer? Pantry shelf tightly wrapped?

TIA for all advice!

chef i keep all my flours in a container in the freezer. same thing with nut flours (which i can't eat, but make occassionally for my dh). it sure keeps em fresh. i would imagine coconut flour would be the same. although i keep my coconut flakes in the refrigerator. i don't like to keep anything other than the most recent spices, dried chilis, teas, canned goods, vinegars, and oils in the pantry cuz i think the heat and humidity in texas is too hard on them.

I agree with Pooti. Coconut flour goes rancid pretty quickly, so I keep mine in the freezer, as well as all my lc flours.

If you develop any good recipes using the coconut flour, please post them. I haven't had a lot of luck with mine. I'm looking for sucessful recipes.
