Hi Dee,

I went to Sprouts looking for coconut milk. I noticed that all their coconut milk products contain Carrageenan and sugar cane. I'm trying to avoid both of these ingredients if possible. What brand-name of coconut milk do you recommend?

thanks,
Joe

Thai Kitchen brand is what I get. It comes in a can, not a carton. You will find it on the shelf with the other Asian foods. Typically in the same area as the soy sauce. Trader Joe's also has cans of coconut milk.

Well im not a user of coconut milk because i live to use its oil in cooking and some sorts of drinks. So im not in a position to tell you about better brands. Why not you convert from coconut milk to coconut oil. Almost all the doctor advice to must use it with in a week.

Dee,
I am so excited I just received the new cookbook!!  I just made the pumpkin pie & it is fabulous from fresh pumpkin!  I have a question- it calls for coconut milk & I used unsweetened from a carton, but was I supposed to use canned or does it matter?  I have heard there is more fat in the canned, so i thought that could make a difference too.
thanks!

Oh, I'm so glad you like the pumpkin pie recipe!  If your pie turned out great, then it does not matter that you used the coconut milk from the carton versus the can.

The reason I don't recommend coconut milk from the carton is because the brands that come in the carton have additives in them like CALCIUM PHOSPHATE, MAGNESIUM PHOSPHATE, CARRAGEENAN, GUAR GUM, and synthetic vitamins and minerals like VITAMIN A PALMITATE, VITAMIN D-2, L-SELENOMETHIONINE (SELENIUM), ZINC OXIDE, FOLIC ACID, VITAMIN B-12.

I like the canned coconut milk that does not have any additives.  These are some of my preferred brands of canned coconut milk:

Yeah!    I always wanted to know which coconut milk was better to buy.  I was confused buy unhealthy questionable additives.  It was a question I always had in the grocery store but never remembered it when home on the computer.  PEACE
