Benefits Why coconut milk? Coconut milk is naturally rich in saturated fats, mainly short and medium-chain fatty acids (MCTs). MCTs are usually not stored by the body as fats. Instead, it is metabolized by the body to provide instant energy. Almost a quarter of a portion of coconut milk contains MCTs, mainly Lauric acid. Lauric acid is believed to boost the immune system and has been shown to promote brain development and bone health. This is why one of the richest natural sources of Lauric acid is mother’s milk. Next to mother’s milk, coconuts are the richest source of Lauric acid. “Lauric acid has microbial properties, so it can help protect against bacterial infection” notes Paul May, a professor at Bristol University in England. Lauric acid may also help in maintaining the elasticity of the blood vessels and in keeping them clean, which in turn could also lower the risk for conditions like, atherosclerosis and heart disease. Coconut trees grow in rich volcanic soil, contributing to the high mineral content of coconut. About 22% of the recommended daily allowance of iron ( for women, it is lower for men) can be absorbed from a recommended serving of Coconut milk. With such a high level of iron, consuming coconut milk regularly could naturally decrease iron deficiency disorders. Apart from the beneficial MCT’s & mineral content, coconut milk also contains several antioxidant compounds, which can provide protection against harmful free radicals and their damaging effects on the body cells and tissues. Coconut milk can promote a healthy gut by relieving gastric symptoms, stomach ulcers, and even acid reflux. And if all those benefits aren’t enough. Coconut milk can even help to relax nerves and muscles, control blood sugar levels, lower blood pressure and reduce joint inflammation.

Is Coconut Milk better than dairy milk? With evolving climate-change and cruelty-free movements combined with results from scientific studies and research, touting the many inhumane aspects of dairy farming, health complications, and allergies caused by dairy; there is a little voice in every ‘conscious’ consumer’s mind to, at the very least, reduce the number of dairy products they consume. There are many dairy-free butter alternatives; seeds & nuts butter, even our raw creamed coconut butter, and toasted coconut butter are tasty alternatives. There are many vegan ‘cheese’ options that are made from coconut flour and soy products too. Cutting down on dairy intake could be a start. Given the many dairy-free kinds of milk available now; Coconut Milk, Coconut cream Almond Milk, Rice Milk, Hemp Milk it is quite easy to go dairy-free!
Make a conscious decision; if you have read this article this far and it made sense to you, you are old enough not to be drinking from anyone’s mammary glands!
Packaging and recycling Available in 100g, 300g, 1kg and 20kg aluminum foil bags. Dispose of with soft plastic bags (like you would chips bags) by taking them to your local supermarket and putting them into their green recycling collection bins.
Word of caution. Coconut milk is high in fiber, so if you are new to consuming it, it is best to increase intake gradually allowing the gut to slowly get accustomed to it.
