    Yes looked it up.
    Ingredients: Coconut Extract (56%), Water, Stabiliser: E466, Emulsifier: E471, Antioxidant: E330.
    Do you know how that compares to the Dunn River one? The Dunn River cans are only 80p at my local health food shop, as opposed to 1.30 for Blue Dragon - and that's at the bigger stores. I'll switch to Dunn River if it's good stuff.

    Would like a way of thickening it though, gives it a feel of quality..

    I buy all my coconut produce from them, oil aswell. You can get it from Planet organic(Essex road or Torrington place) or Whole foods as far as i know.
    I really like the Biona brand, but their coconut milk does contain guar gum:

    Biona - Biona Organic Coconut Milk - 400ml

    Ingredients

    Coconut* (50%), water, stabiliser: guar gum

    *= certified organic ingredients

    I'd love to find one which is without gum!

    The aroy d brand packaging is bpa free and generally gets the nod from lots of people, it's not organic but then that's not a massive issue with coconuts cause of the thick outer shell, plus given where they have come from by the time they reach the UK shores and the different people and companies that have handled them, can you really be sure that the organic label provides that much confidence

    Ayam Coconut milk

    Hi

    I thought I would add this brand of Coconut milk, I buy it for 1.19 per tin and it's been very good so far. I have attached some photos for information. I get it from my local Oriental/Asian store when they have a BOGOF promotion.

    Hope this helps!
