From what I understand the benefit of coconut milk is its MCFA which is a very healthy type of fatty acid. Apart from that, coconut milk contains some potassium which is good as well. But it also contains some sugar (around 5 g/100 ml, 50% of which is fructose) and zero vitamins. So it seems that is a good source for good fat and some carbs but hasn`t much to offer apart from this. While I do not eat a lot of dairy, milk products seem, on the other hand, at least quite high in micronutrients. Or did I miss something? Doesn`t coconut oil offer the same benefits without the sugar? Sure, the milk is great in some Asian dishes (because of the taste) but it seems to be a staple in many people`s diet...
