    This is their unsweetened version?? Sheesh.

    Yeah, besides the sweeteners the thickeners there's a bunch of artificial vitamins. Calcium and magnesium, um, ok. Folic acid - not really used by your body. D-2 - why? And I don't trust "natural flavors" - that could be anything these days.

    Yeah, get the cans. Even the 75 cent cans from the hispanic market. Or the more expensive and more tasty Thai Kitchen. Or order the BPA-free ones off Amazon. I put plain coconut milk from a can in my coffee all the time (along with a bit of stevia powder), it's yummy.

    Even better, make your own.

    I looked on Amazon for coconut milk and most of them contain the following: organic coconut, water, organic guar gum.
    Is there a pure brand of coconut milk in BPA free cans?

    Yes, Aroy-D in the cardboard box has no BPA, and it's just water and coconut. And the price is very good, for a very delicious coconut milk that can be drank straight or added to anything. I've tried some of the other brands from cans, and they taste grainy, or gummy and strange. But the Aroy-D is smooth and milky, and sweet - not bland like the other brands I've tried. I drink a box every day in my coffee.

    I don't trust tetrapaks either. Just because BPA has had numerous studies and not other chemicals involved packaging doesn't mean BPA is the only thing you should avoid.

    Yes, there are other chemicals. If I could make my own coconut milk I would. Not an option yet. Too poor. Someday, when I'm a billionaire, I'll be able to buy coconuts at $4.00 each, find out how many were moldy, and blend up the survivors for whatever measly amount of actual product I can squeeze out of them. What's it take, like three coconuts to get a nice thick cup of milk? So $12.00 for one morning's worth of coconut milk, plus $12.00 more for the other three that were moldy? I just can't do that right now. $24.00 for a cup of coconut milk makes no sense. I already spend $50.00 per week on groceries just on myself. Can't be almost x1.5'ing it for puritan coconut milk.

    I get 2 delicious cups from a $1.49 coconut at the Asian supermarket Way better than cartoned or canned stuff.

    Trader Joe's now sells a heavy creme full fat coconut milk that is double the fat of anything else out there, in a can! Woo hoo! And for just $1.49 a pop...

    Real Coconut Milk is sold in a can, and is only coconut meat and milk. You will find "low fat" versions where they have added water to it, ich... real coconut milk is much thicker than that stuff in the box and useful for many things - and quite yummy! You can also, of course, get it from a coconut as well

    Water, or squeezed milk? Can I use baby coconuts? With yield like that I might actually try this one...if I can find coconuts for less than $4.00. Asian market does have them, but I haven't priced the big ones.

    No, they don't. It's toxic sludge, I read the label myself.

    Squeezed milk. I don't think you can use baby coconuts. At least at the places I buy it, it's $0.69/lb, and each turn out roughly 2 lbs or so.

    Agreed.
