ORGANIC COCONUT MILK, powder
Botanical name: Cocos nucifera
Ingredients: organic coconut milk powder, organic maltodextrin (derived from organic tapioca)
Origin: Sri Lanka
Qualities: Coconut milk powder has the scent of a coconut and a slightly sweet taste. It is produced from the creamy, rich liquid made from the meat of mature coconuts (not the liquid that can be drained out from a coconut that has been punctured). It is high in saturated fat, mainly lauric acid (also found in mother's milk), along with Vitamins B, C, and E and a multitude of antioxidants. Contains 42-52% fat.
Common Use: Coconut milk powder can be made into coconut milk by simply adding water. Adjust the powder to water ratio depending on the richness of the desired milk. This powder is ideal for recipes that call for coconut milk, such as curries, puddings, baking, ice cream, and it can be added to beverages like smoothies, coffee, or hot chocolate.
Storage: This product tends to clump when compressed or exposed to cold temperatures because of the high-fat content. Store in an airtight container in a dark, cool, and dry location, or in the refrigerator or freezer (well sealed) if buying a quantity that will take more than a month to consume. Clumping is normal and easy to break up when brought to room temperature or dissolved in warm water.
Safety: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
