Versatile – Kokonati organic condensed 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.This Organic coconut milk is evaporated with organic sugar to make this wonderfully thick condensed coconut milk. 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 decadent vegan condensed milk with the rest of the world!

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.
