On Whole 30 I made my own coconut milk because all the canned stuff has additives not permitted on Whole 30. It's not hard to do from flakes of coconut The boxed stuff has worse additives.

Aroy uses a high heat pasteurization process on the tetra pak coconut milk to give it a long shelf life. They don't add anything. So base your decision with some facts in hand. http://www.templeofthai.com/food/coconut-milk/aroy-d-small

Read the ingredients and the labels. The canned kind is more for cooking and has a higher percentage of fat. The carton kind is more for coffee or drinking.

Not sure what the differences are and it seems like you can control consistency better if you use the powder. That being said, seems more "processed" and likely to have less nutrients then having the milk. Any suggestions or clarifications?
