    Are there any brands of coconut milk without guar gum?

    Shop Now
    or would the amount in the brands I have access to, Thai Kitchen and A Taste of Thai, not even be worth worrying about?

    Trader Joe's light coconut milk only has coconut and water. If they have a non-light version, perhaps it is the same (we have the light leftover from long ago.) I've also found a number of unusual brands at Asian markets without guar gum.

    I use the trader Joe's light kind. $.99 a can. can't beat it. Coconut and water are the only ingredients like sbhikes mentioned

    Walmart(surprisingly) sells coconut milk that doesn't have any preservatives. Just coconut milk and water. I'm not sure if this is at all Walmarts across the country, but it's at all the Walmarts near where I live.

    This is also the most delicious tasting brand as far as I can tell. I have seen it at Walmart, but didn't think to check T&T!

    I think this is the brand I buy at Superstore here in Canada. I don't have any in the house right now but, I know it was a black can and had two ingredients. It's a really good tasting brand.
