Did you know that non-dairy milk sales have grown by 61% in the USA since 2012? Yep, that’s a huge jump in just 8 years! People are going crazy for dairy-free products.
If you’re looking for a source of nutrients that’s delicious, sustainably grown and its production was in no way cruel to animals, you’ll want to look at organic vegan coconut milk powder.
There are a lot of brands of coconut milk and coconut milk powder on the market today that are not vegan friendly. Some of them aren’t organic either, and many of them are definitely not what we can call pure and natural.
So please, read on to learn more about coconut milk powder that is vegan, organic, non-GMO, additive-free, gluten-free, and allergen-free. And, all this in just one product!
What is Coconut Milk?
Here at Essenzefruits®, we’re nuts about coconuts! And how could we not be when it’s a top superfood!?
This fruit (or sometimes known as a tree nut) has too many health benefits to count!
It can help with:
- Weight loss and maintenance
- Reducing the risk of heart disease
- Improving digestion, diabetes, chronic fatigue, and nutrient absorption
And on top of all of that, it boosts your immunity and energy!
While milk is a great source of calcium for vegetarians, demand for vegan and dairy-free products has surged. Why? Well, people are looking to reduce fat and cholesterol intake, support brands that care about the environment and animals, or they are simply allergic to dairy or are lactose intolerant.
Coconut milk is an especially good alternative to cow milk, as it’s thick and creamy. You can use it in recipes but it adds a distinct flavor, so be careful! Make sure you use either the canned or ready-to-drink coconut milk. Canned milk is much thicker and has a higher fat content than the ready-to-drink one. The recommendation is to only use canned coconut milk if the recipe calls for it, especially if you’re up for some Indian curry!
If you’re on Keto or Paleo diets, coconut milk is probably your best friend. Mmmm, hungry?
What is Coconut Milk Powder?
When you reach for your favorite milky drink, all you want is to taste that sweet coconut. But where does it come from and how is coconut milk powder produced?
First, we take the coconut flesh - the white part - then we grate it and soak it in hot water. The coconut cream rises to the top and we skim it off. Then the remaining liquid goes through a cloth and the white liquid we extract is actually coconut milk. Coconut milk powder is what we get when we dry the raw, unsweetened coconut cream. You get a pack of it, mix a spoon or two of it in hot or cold water… And voila! You got yourself a creamy, milky beverage that soothes your tastebuds.
Although it’s a powder, it retains a lot of the enzymes and nutrients, and is delicious even when you mix it with water!
What is Vegan Coconut Milk Powder?
Now that you know what coconut milk powder is, you should have a good idea of what vegan coconut milk powder is. Not a single drop of vegan coconut milk powder contains any extracts from cow, goat or sheep milk, or any animal-derived products! Animal cruelty: 0, sweet deliciousness: 100%.
Dairy-Free Coconut Milk Powder
In addition to vegan coconut milk powder, there’s also dairy-free coconut milk powder. Some manufacturers use dairy to produce coconut milk powder. Obviously, this is not suitable for the lactose intolerant! Nobody wants an upset stomach (and quite possibly a ruined day thanks to it)!
So, if you want to enjoy coconut milk and support brands that use no dairy in products, check the label for “dairy-free”.
What is Pure Organic Coconut Milk?
Pure organic coconut milk has no additives. It can also contain raw coconut milk powder. You see, dairy-free and vegan coconut milk or coconut milk powder aren’t necessarily pure. Sometimes they can have additives for shelf stability. Among them is maltodextrin, a type of polysaccharide, so it’s not usually stated as added sugar on the label. It’s hard to find coconut milk without maltodextrin in refrigerated cartons. But don’t be quick to think that completely pure coconut milk powder doesn’t exist! There are brands that can proudly boast pure organic vegan coconut milk powder! (hint hint, check out Essenzefruits® awesome products!)
What is the Best Coconut Milk on the Market?
Considering the popularity of coconut milk and coconut milk powder, it’s not surprising that a bunch of brands offer them. But how do you choose the best one for you?
Compare the nutritive values, consider your needs, and of course the taste and what you can use the milk for. There are lists of the best brands on the market but not all of those brands can boast pure, organic, vegan, non-allergenic products!
Many products on the market contain dairy and cannot be classified as being organic. But not Essenzefruits®!
We offer completely pure organic vegan coconut milk powder with no maltodextrin, dairy or any artificial substances. All our products are suitable for the lactose intolerant, and for those who seek non-GMO and gluten-free products.
