  • Coconut milk?

    hey guys and gals got question on canned coconut milk.
    I went to the store today and got some but as i looked at the ingredients it said it had corn starch in it and in a different one it did not (cheap one had corn starch expensive one did not) so my question is am i better off sticking with the one without corn starch?

    I would buy the coconut milk that has the fewest ingredients.

      To be honest there wasn't that many ingredients in either just thought corn starch can't be to healthy

        You don't want to ingest corn starch. You can get coconut milk for much cheaper off of or Amazon. I got mine off of Vitacost, I think it was around 1.50-1.70 per can, and it's organic and the can is BPA free. Unfortunately for me, I can't use coconut milk anymore, lol!! But either way, it's much cheaper to buy that way than in the store. Same with coconut oil. You can get a 54oz jar on Vitacost for 20.00.

          The brand I got from Vitacost is called Native Forrest.

            I have a coconut milk question, too. I have two brands available to me; one is organic but contains guar gum, the other is conventional but contains nothing but coconut milk. I'm inclined to go with the latter but wouldn't mind input from others.

              I would say go with the latter. The more pure you can get it, the better.
