Coconut milk

COCONUT MILK – THE VITAMIN ELIXIR

A valuable product for vegans/vegetarians, lactose intolerant, and exotic food lovers.

For the first time, coconut milk originated in Thai cuisine, where it was used as a substitute for dairy products of animal origin since the local population neglects them. Coconut milk should not be confused with coconut juice or water, which is a natural liquid that occurs naturally in the fetal cavity. Unlike this liquid, coconut milk is obtained artificially - the coconut pulp is grated, and then the pulp is squeezed through cheesecloth. The final product can be both thick and liquid - it depends on the number of squeezes. The first spin produces thick coconut milk. The used pulp can be soaked in water and squeezed a few more times to form liquid coconut milk.

Most East Asian dishes are not complete without coconut milk, which is their main ingredient. The homeland of this product is Thailand, where coconut milk soup served in the coconut itself is especially popular. In Malaysia, Brunei, and Indonesia, coconut milk is called santan, and in the Philippines, it is known as gata. Coconut milk has a rich, soft and delicate taste that Europeans also adore: it is very popular in France. In French cuisine, this product is called "Asian cream" - it is a great alternative to cream, as thick coconut milk contains a large amount of fat and oil.
