Biona Coconut milk comes from pressing coconut kernels (white flesh) of organically grown coconuts and collecting the juice within. The juice is a milky white colour and distinctively sweet. This is not the same as the coconut water, the clear liquid found inside the coconut upon opening it. As this is a natural, organic product without any artificial stabilisers or additives the coconut fat and water content can separate. This has no effect on the final quality of the product – simply shake the can or blend the contents to recombine.
Coconut milk is commonly used in Thai and Indian cuisine as the sweet creamy flavour and consistency combine perfectly with so many Asian spices and herbs. It balances a cooling mellow flavour against hot, spicy ingredients.
Coconut milk can also be used to flavour rice, custards and creams, cakes and batters.
