Anyone have a source for coconut milk in tetra pacs or other non-BPA containers? Glass ware, etc?

If it's an issue, Native Forest contains guar gum.

Thanks, Kat. How much water do you mix in to dilute it?

My co-op says Native Forest has definitely swtiched to BPA-free cans. You can find them in just about any health food store.

Dirk, did you mix it with hot water? I should dissolve pretty quickly especially if at room temperature to start with.

I have tried this product and liked it but didn't quite know what to do with it. It seemed not to mix with water as promoted.

Yikes- this product could have been so good-why do they have to add all those synthetic vitamins and additives? I would avoid products with synthetic Vit A and D like this one personally.

In the Southwest, I can get a 1/2 gallon of Coconut Milk http://www.purelydecadent.com/products/coconut_milk_beverage.html at the Sprouts Market. http://sprouts.com/home.php $4.59/ half gallon.

And here is a blog for making your own coconut milk. http://nutrition-and-physical-regeneration.com/blog/533/how-to/how-to-make-coconut-milk/

You can get 100% coconut milk in 12 paper cartons for $13. Well, there's shipping too but that's the cheapest I've found for ready-made coconut milk that has no preservatives, guar gum, or metal can packaging.

I used coconut cream concentrate to make my own coconut milk. http://www.tropicaltraditionscanada.com/coconutcreamconcentrate.html Comes in a glass jar and is quite concentrated, much cheaper than buying cans of coconut milk.

Yeah, Native Forest is supposedly BPA-free. Some Whole Foods stores carry it. Or you can get it online: http://www.naturalgrocers.com/coconut_milk_organic_by_native_forest_13_5_oz_item_115257-p-14080.html

Coconut milk is mostly water, doctored with emulsifiers, and highly processed to keep it from spoiling. However, the good news is that coconut milk is quite easy to make yourself from dried coconut pulp. More good news is DIY coconut milk is considerably cheaper since you are not paying for all the extra processing or shipping of water.

The raw coconut butters sold here and here in glass jars are basically creamed coconut. Kinda pricy, but high quality.

I have heard that Native Forest brand does not use BPA in their cans, but I don't know for sure. I'll try and investigate it today.
