Ever wondered how natural coconut milk and cream is made? Normally, the coconut is peeled, and its flesh cut into pieces before being crushed. The extract obtained is then boiled, homogenised, filtered, canned and sterilised. For cream, the process is carried on for longer, which allows the product to be more concentrated. Coconut milk and cream in its natural state has a slightly grey shade and will solidify under cooler temperatures.
These are the hallmarks of what makes AYAM™ Coconut Milk and Cream different to other brands. AYAM™ Coconut Milk and Cream are 100% natural, and therefore do not contain preservatives, thickeners or artificial whiteners. Contrary to its name, coconut milk and cream are also dairy-free! This makes AYAM™ regular Coconut Milk and Cream the perfect choice for natural food advocates, vegans and those who are lactose intolerant.
Use coconut milk when cooking light curries or thinner gravies, and use coconut cream to give a thicker consistency or a final creamy touch to a dish. Remember to give AYAM™ 100% natural coconut products a decent shake before enjoying it in your curry, soup or dessert.
