Coconut Milk Questions
Spare me the lectures about whether BPA is really unsafe or not--as far as I'm concerned, it doesn't belong in our bodies, safe or not, and they are finding it in our bloodstreams, urine, breast milk, etc. And yes, I'm aware that other... (more)

Let's keep it simple... So fat inhibits absorption of protein. Coconut milk has a lot of fat. If I made my protein shakes with coconut milk, would the fat from the coconut milk inhibit the absorption of the protein powder? I KNOW it's better to... (more)
What are your recommendations for thick coconut cream or milk? I feel like as soon as I start to love a brand, it becomes extremely low quality. I used to buy Native Forest coconut milk in the cans and skim off the cream and use that in tea. The... (more)

So, I make my own coconut milk and it separates after time once it cools. I've considered using the wonderful top layer in something instead of mixing it back in. What I want to know is what to do with the leftover water. Does it contain vitamins... (more)
So I found an awesome coconut milk (below). It's 100% coconut milk and is utterly delicious. The liquid version of bacon. I might become addicited to this! Only problem is it's UHT. There's nothing else in it because there doesn't need to be.... (more)
I went shopping at Trader Joes recently and saw they were selling coconut cream. Typically I buy the lite version but I figured I'd give this a shot. Unfortunately I forgot to read the ingredients before purchasing. 'coconut, xanthum gum, and... (more)
I just opened a can of Goya coconut milk, and it is much more runny/thin than any other canned coconut milk I've ever had. In the past, I've used Thai Kitchen and Whole Foods brands, and they were always very thick. I figured that that was just... (more)
Hello, I have been on the paleo diet for 28 days now. At the beginning i lost quite a few pounds but for the last two weeks i've remained the same. It seems the reason for this was me introducing nuts, both as snacks and nut butter. Since I... (more)
I just bought a bunch of Aroy-d 16.5oz cartons of coconut milk. Anything wrong with drinking like one a day (on top of my regular mealplan)? I'm trying to gain fat/weight.
I want to limit my fructose intake to under 50 grams a day. I use a can of full fat coconut milk in our smoothies every morning. Curious if it is high? I have scoured the internet for an hour.... no success.
Hi my can of coconut milk say that 100g has 169 kcal, proteins 1.8g, carbs 6.8g, fat 15g. but this is for whole can, water + separated part. I love eating separated part alone, do you know how should I count it? I dont know where to find it. Thanks (more)
I just started my paleo experience 5 days ago! I went to the store, and couldn't find a coconut milk that didn't have preservatives. Mind you, I was getting a little testy and just wanted to get out of the store...I ended up buying Oh So Delicious... (more)
I find all of the refrigerated coconut milk will have preservatives and other stuff added. I go for the canned stuff, which usually shows up in the "ethnic" or "asian" sections of the grocery stores I shop at. You can also buy it online.
Alrighty, I live in the UK and it seems over here it is pretty hard to find an affordable, BPA-free coconut milk so I've been looking around and am thinking about making my own from unsweetened shredded coconut. Would this still contain all of the... (more)
making coconut milk on your own from unsweetened shredded coconut will definitely be way nutritious than the ones processed. You will have quality control in your own hands, and fresh coconut milk. your storage time will be less than the time the... (more)
Whats are the differences between the coconut milks? I've been using the canned coconut milk, but I have also seen coconut milk in cartons in the refrigerated section and also in the middle of the store on the shelf. So whats the difference?
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.
