I do everything content.

Always check the label! Canned coconut milk has a lot of bad stuff in it, better not buy it.

Now that I’ve determined coconut milk to be my preferred alternative to lactose milk during my Low FODMAP diet, I’m facing the next obstacle: Where to buy it?

A check on the ingredients list has ruled out canned coconut milk completely: Simply shocking what is being added to the coconut milk, really such a shame to spoil a good product this way.

Healthy coconut milk, which contains just that, is very difficult to come by. But 100% coconut milk does exist, so it might be a matter of requesting your supermarket to stock better quality foods.

However, even if you find pure coconut milk in your store, if it’s in a can, chances are the tin is lined with BPA. And even if it’s BPA-free, it’s probably still not healthy.

So best is really to avoid canned coconut milk all together and either buy it in a carton box or make your own.

 

Homemade coconut milk is really easy! Watch this space for simple how to instructions coming up. 🙂
