Coconut Milk Questions
I am a type 2 diabetic, and I found that switching to Paleo over a year ago brought my blood sugar down from the 360~480 range to the low 200's. FANTASTIC, RIGHT? I've taken insulin before, but it caused a rapid, disgusting weight gain of 2.5... (more)
I am attempting my second Whole 30. Doing alright--I've been paleo/primal for over two months so this isn't brutal. I find myself having a few "go-to's" as foods to manage my way and am wondering if there are any potential pit falls. ... (more)

I live in Australia and I have two choices available to me: Aroy-D coconut milk and Ayam coconut milk Aroy-D coconut mik pros: all natural ingredients (60% coconut, water), BPA free cardboard carton, cheap price ($2.50/L). Concerns:... (more)
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
Morning, I am new to Paleo & have noticed that coconut milk is used a lot, which is great because I love it...however I am buying cans from the supermarket but I am not sure if they are suitable, how can I tell? I am based in the UK & I... (more)
Hi Everyone, I am new to paleo, day 4 as a matter of fact, and so far I am feeling pretty good about it. I am not a huge milk/dairy person as it is so I don't feel like cutting out dairy is going to be an issue for me. I am also trying to go as... (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)
I wamt to buy cases of Native Forest coconut milk, but have been unable to find a cheap source online... I can't purchase it from Amazon.com, or I would. Are there any suppliers in Canada who will ship to me? Or do you guys have any other ideas?... (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.
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.
