Organic coconut, water, guar gum
Many historians believe that the coconut was first grown in Malaysia and Indonesia before spreading to across all countries south of the equator. Coconut milk is especially used in South-East Asian cooking (Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia, etc…), as well as in Africa and the South Pacific.
In French Polynesia, coconut milk is called haari when pure. Haari Miti is a condiment made from mixing lemon juice with sea water or coconut water. Coconut milk is used as a hair treatment to keep it strong and the scalp healthy in Polynesian and Tahitian cultures.
In India, coconut was once known as kalpa vriksha, which means "the tree which provides all that is necessary for life."
Coconut milk can be used both in savory and sweet dishes. It is an essential ingredient in Indian, Thai, Hawaiian and African cooking. It provides a creamier texture and a sweet and exotic flavor to your purees, soups, sauces, smoothies, and desserts. You can also just add it to your cereal in the morning or as a sweetener in your coffee or tea.
Once opened, coconut milk will last about 3 days if it is covered and kept in the fridge. The expiry date is visible on the can.
Coconut milk is a great for making hair silky, and also for strengthening the scalp!
