fantastic pure coconut milk

Guar gum is the only 'stabiliser' in this coconut milk. What some previous reviewers have failed to appreciate is that despite being a stabiliser this is actually a very natural product derived from real food. The only side effects it is though to have are positive (as it is a soluble fibre it promotes weight loss and lowered blood glucose). So I'm quite happy to have it in my food! The same cannot be said of most other tinned coconut milk which use all sorts of processed thickeners to get that thick and creamy consistency. That is not what coconut milk should look like. I would much rather have it the natural way, even with some separation of the product (which combines when cooked anyway). Also, and more importantly, I actually think this tastes better more natural, less processed taste and with a thinner consistency which make more authentic Thai curries (which are not supposed to be in thick sauces). I personally wouldn't buy any other coconut milk!

quality item

Clearly, a lot of people are not aware of what makes a healthy, quality can of coconut milk. The brands which offer consistently creamy milk in their can, are the brands that also put unhealthy stabilisers in. I like the fact that biona's milk separates as this is proof that they have not put an unnecessary amount of stabilisers or other junk ingredients in. I'm very happy with this brand. It has a thick layer of cream at the top and it takes only 2 cans to make a decent amount of dairy-free ice-cream. Yummy.

Simply Awful

Compared to the 5 star Thai branded coconut milk, this was extremely disappointing. Large content of water, guar gum and stabiliser turn what should be a fantastic organic product into a watery grey substance which does not thicken in curries and is rather tasteless. I usually have positive reviews for Biona products, but the coconut milk is definitely an anomaly and I shall not purchase, use or recommend this item to anyone.

Recipes

Coconut Rice

Coconut Rice

Lisa's Tip: This recipe is so simple but gives a huge flavour boost. The rice gets a slightly sweet and nutty flavour so its a perfect complement to Asian cooking. If you are making a curry, fish, spicy stir fry or even a roast chicken, this rice will be a great side!

Fragrant Thai Duck Curry

Fragrant Thai Duck Curry

This fiery dish makes full use of duck's rich, powerful flavour, calling on a number of spices to create a stunning curry. Serve with steamed rice.
