If you’re planning on cooking with coconut milk, make sure that you’re using real Thai coconut milk by shopping at Thai Food Direct. Coconut milk is rich in saturated fats which is useful for lowering cholesterol and blood pressure, making it an ideal ingredient to be woven into much of your cooking. There are a number of excellent recipes that you can use coconut milk in, including a variety of different curries. When using such an important ingredient, it is important to make sure that you use only the highest quality real Thai coconut milk for the best possible flavour and benefits.


How is Coconut Milk Made?


Real Thai coconut milk is made by soaking the flesh of the coconut in hot water. The coconut cream will rise to the top of the water and be skimmed off before the remaining liquid is squeezed through a cheesecloth to extract the coconut milk. By repeating this process, you can get thicker or thinner coconut milk. By ensuring that you have high quality, real Thai coconut milk, you can make sure that it has been made to the highest quality. Due to the nature of coconut milk, you can’t get fresh milk here, but our canned coconut milk is made to the highest quality.


Is coconut milk like coconut water?


No, real Thai coconut milk is entirely different because coconut water is the clear liquid that comes from the centre of a coconut rather than something made from the flesh of the coconut. Although coconut water has a number of excellent health benefits, it is not usually used in cooking, which coconut milk is. Coconut water is full of electrolytes and is an excellent alternative to sports drinks, though.


What are the Benefits of real Thai Coconut Milk?


Because real Thai coconut milk is made from the flesh of a coconut, it is rich in fibre, and vitamins, including vitamin C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6, as well as minerals like iron, selenium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. This makes it a really great base for many sauces because it allows you to bring in all these nutrients without bulking out your meal. 


Additionally, coconut milk is lactose free, making it the perfect milk substitute for those with a lactose intolerance. Although real Thai coconut milk does certainly have a stronger flavour than more traditional cows milk, it is a great base for smoothies, milkshakes and as dairy alternatives for baking.
