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 have used a couple of brands Dunns River being one of them, I usually find them in the asian cooking section of the supermarket. Are these coconut milk products ok? Is there a certain brand I should be buying & is it available in the UK?

Thanks Guys :)

Another advantage of Native Forest is that they don't use BPA to line their cans. Reviews on Amazon, however, say that their product quality (at least in the U.S.) has been uneven.

preferably ingredients should read: coconut (extract), water. (possibly organic. nothing else)

& preferably in a bpa free can (usually need to email the company to find out)

Hi zoedehaan, I've only just seen your question so you probably have an answer by now, but have you tried Koko dairy free from Tescos? It contains 8.4% coconut milk and is cholesterol, lactose and soya free, Comes from the fridge and tastes delicious. In the plant milk category "free from" food awards 2013, it received highly commended

I personally like Native Forest's, which only has guar gum as an additive. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001HTJ2BQ/ref=rcxsubs_mys2_product_title

Simply take a look at the ingredients; there ARE coconut milk products out there that consist of nothing more than coconut extract and water. My local grocer carries several coconut milk products and I've managed to find one without any preservatives, thickening additives or sweeteners. If no luck at your grocer, maybe order off the internet?
