Description

Where does the coconut milk base used for this red curry coconut milk come from?

Coconuts are naturally abundant in Ceylon and an integral part of the local cuisine. KOKONATI Organic Coconut Milk is made from freshly grated coconut meat from mature kernels. The finely grated meat is steeped in purified hot water and strained through layers of cheesecloth in a purely mechanical process to extract the milk content.

Our coconut milk is not a brilliant white color. A bit of brownish liquid, which comes from the coconut shell, may naturally appear in some cans when the milk settles. This just goes to proove our product is 100% natural and not standardized by chemical processes. If any coconut milk looks pure white, it may have been processed with bleaching additives….

As we do not use preservatives, we do have to flash pasteurize the milk to be able to preserve, package and ship it from our tropical shores to cooler countries with climates not suitable for growing coconuts. How else can we share such a wonderful superfood with the rest of the world!

Why Coconut Milk?

Coconut milk is naturally rich in saturated fats, mainly short and medium chain fatty acids (MCT’s). MCT’s 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 MCT’s, 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 a 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 level, lower blood pressure and reduce joint inflammation.

How to use coconut milk?

Coconut milk can be diluted to taste and used as a dairy-free alternative, to add a rich flavor to sauces, stews, and curries. It pairs well with most breakfast cereals, hot – cold beverages, smoothies and can even be frozen and whipped into a creamy soft-serve ice cream!

Precaution: Coconut milk is high in fiber, so if you are new to consuming it, best to increase intake gradually allowing the gut to slowly get accustomed to it.

Is Coconut milk better than dairy milk?

With evolving Ecological & 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 vegan ‘cheese’ options that are made from coconut flour and soy products

Eggs on the other hand may be a bit more difficult to substitute.

Cutting down on dairy milk intake could be a start.  Given the many dairy-free milks available nowadays; Coconut Milk, Almond Milk, Rice Milk, Hemp Milk etc it is easy to go dairy-milk-free at least!

Make a conscious decision; if you have read and made sense of this article up to this point; you are old enough NOT to be drinking milk from anyone’s mammary glands!
