About This Food

Description

Coconut milk is the natural liquid made from the meat inside of a coconut (not to be confused with coconut water.) It is lactose-free and often used in Paleo or vegan diets as a milk alternative.

Coconuts are high in vitamins, minerals and a great source of fiber, but coconut milk should still be consumed in moderation due to its naturally high oil content. Coconut milk is a major source of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). These MCTs, unlike other saturated fats, are quickly used in the body as energy and have anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties.

However, most coconut milk comes canned, increasing your risk for exposure to the harmful BPA chemical. Look for coconut milk packed in Tetra packs as the safest option.
