Coconut, Oil, Milk & Water

Coconut, Oil, Milk & Water


I love coconut, it was a treat when my dad got us a whole, fresh, coconut from Ridley Road Market in E. London.  So all of these coconut products are tested regularly in my kitchen at home.

Coconut has a significant amounts of saturated fat, but unlike other nuts (it's actually a fruit), they provide fat that is mostly in the form of medium chain saturated fatty acids (MCFAs) in particular, one called lauric acid. Lauric acid is converted in the body into a highly beneficial compound called monolaurin, an antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial that destroys a wide variety of disease causing organisms. It is therefore thought that consumption of coconut milk and other coconut derived foods may help protect the body from infections and viruses.

At the moment we only have organic coconut milk in stock.
