Kokonati organic coconut milk is made from freshly grated coconut meat from mature kernels. The finely grated meat is steeped in purified hot water and strained through layers of cheesecloth in a purely mechanical process to extract the milk content. Our coconut milk is not a brilliant white color. A bit of brownish liquid, which comes from the coconut shell, may naturally appear in some cans when the milk settles. This just goes to prove our product is 100% natural and not standardized by chemical processes. Any coconut milk that looks pure white may have been processed with bleaching additives. As we do not use preservatives, we do have to flash pasteurize the milk to be able to preserve, package and ship it from our tropical shores to cooler countries with climates not suitable for growing coconuts. How else can we share such a wonderful superfood with the rest of the world!
Uses: Coconut milk can be used as a dairy-free alternative, to add a rich flavor to sauces, stews, and curries. It pairs well with most breakfast cereals, hot-cold beverages, smoothies and can even be frozen and whipped into a light creamy soft-serve ice cream! Keeping to our ‘Inside & Out’ policy, you can even use Kokonati coconut milk to moisturize your skin and hair. A quick remedy for hair nits. Add a tablespoon of Kokonati coconut cider or coconut water vinegar to an appropriate amount of coconut milk ( depends on the thickness and length of hair) before massaging into the scalp. This remedy will keep nits at bay while also imparting a healthy shine! A 100% natural remedy even for school-aged children. Please do a patch test before using this remedy. As each of us is special and unique we cannot possibly know if you may have a reaction to using this natural remedy. There is a consequence to choosing healthy natural cruelty-free products. You and I are the test subjects!
Before use: Contents may separate naturally. Before use, shake can or stir well to get an even texture. In cold weather (under 22 Deg C) place the can in a warm water bath for a few minutes and then shake well before opening. If needed strain through a sieve for extra free flow, using a spatula to force through any unmelted coconut milk fat through the sieve. This separation happens as our coconut milk and cream are free of any emulsifiers and stabilizers. So a little elbow grease is needed to use this 100% natural product!
Flavor: Aroma and taste is freshly coconut. Depending on the harvest and season every batch of milk can vary in color and to a minor degree in taste as it is a natural cottage-industry product that does not use any chemical refining, additives, or preservatives to standardize the product like with large-scale commercially standardized coconut milk.
72% coconut kernel, 28% purified water.
Storage: Keep in the pantry while unopened. With a best before of two years from the manufacture date, coconut milk remains safe to use for even longer periods if it is stored with minimal exposure to light and air. Refrigerate on opening in a non-metal airtight container. Use within 3-4 days of opening. Freeze in ice cube trays for prolonged use. Kokonati coconut milk is packed at the origin, in the very plantations, the coconut is harvested from, to seal the freshness and reduce exposure from day one.
