I just got some of this yesterday, very good coconut milk.

Not entirely sure the 9 cent savings is worth a thread of it’s own in a HOT DEALS forum to be quite honest though.

The "regular" price varies ( it was at $1.19 ). It's also 'hot' relative to the more expensive brands (~$1.50). The cheapest coconut milk at Superstore is selling for $1.08 right now ( the Walmart one taste better to me and has no preservatives ). Coconut milk preservatives may cause stomach problems for some people.

For can food stuff, I usually buy in set of 6,12, and 24. This one has a Nov 2022 best before date.

I usually buy Aroy coconut milk. Apart from this not being in stock at the moment, it’s more expensive. How does this compare? I tend to like a thicker coconut milk for Panang Curry and various other dishes. Thanks

FYI for everyone: Sulphites ARE in this one and they ARE a preservative that some react bad to.

AroyD is the pinnacle coconut cream for me... I've actually got 4 different brands in-house now (Wal-Mart and Loblaws carried brands, plus one from co-op so, 5 brands?) Lots of stores have it on sale right now.

The higher end brands tend to have much thicker product, less (or no) added water and Polysorbate, for some reason. Look at the fat and protein content before you buy. Higher end ones dont use Guar Gum either, but just pure coconut extract. Guar gum is a thickener/filler.

pikysorbate is an emulsifier. Because people would get upset when their coconut milk is separated water and solid, so adding this keeps everything in solution (well mostly keeping the water and oil mixed, but the oil is in the coconut extract).

Any idea if these folks use slave monkeys for grabbing the coconuts?

It says "may" contain sulphites. It is natural in a lot of food products. RoyD may have it too.

Sulfites also occur naturally in a number of foods such as maple syrup, pectin, salmon, dried cod, corn starch, lettuce, tomatoes, soy products, eggs, onions, garlic, chives, leeks and asparagus.

Considering my main grocery store (atlantic superstore) has coconut milk at 3 and $5 per can, as well as the fact that it’s not actually good quality, I’ll take this thread thankfully.

I was thinking the same thing, but RFD is getting antsy with me lately posting negative stuff (censored a lot), so.... lol

Yeah, I use the stuff for Thai-style cooking all the time, but am a little concerned about monkey welfare as well on anything coconut now... :P
For this price, I'm guessing third-rate slave-monkeys were used.. I'll let your mind imagine what those are....


'Member when hip wierdos were using this stuff (well, coconut oil, by the gallon) to brush their teeth? I 'member... Smiling Face With Horns

Guar gum is a thickener. Generally used to make a more watery substance be thicker. Cheaper to add this than more coconut.
Polysorbate is an emulsifier, keeps the oil (coconut) and water from separating.

Aroy-D has a lot more coconut in it than this one, which you can see from the nutritional information (3.5g vs 8.5g fat, 40 vs 80 calories, all per 1/4 cup).
