Plant Based Coconut Milk Powder- An Alternate to Dairy Milk
Coconut Milk Powder- Whats all the fuss about?
Increasing awareness of veganism, animal torture, animal rights, plant-based options is revolutionising the way people live, eat and purchase. Dairy milk in some ways is being replaced by a wide range of different kinds ofvegan/plant-based milk, and coconut milk is the most widely used plant based milk. Vegan / Plant Based cooking has made so many items, mandatory shelf items in kitchen, which were earlier unknown to most of us, like the humble coconut milk powder. Coconut milk is used in cuisines of South East Asia, India, China, Sri Lanka, etc.
In this blog, we would talk about Vegan Coconut Milk (Some non-vegan options are also available in the market. Be cautious of them) powder, its applications and why do you need it your shelf.
First, let’s take a look at Coconut Milk.
Coconut milk is the extract of a grated mature coconut. It can be used as an alternative to dairy milk. It is a cruelty-free option and healthier too especially if you wish to lose weight.
As a result, coconut milk has gained popularity in the healthcare community and as an alternative to dairy milk. You can add it to your smoothies, curry, soups, oatmeal etc. It is rich in macro and micronutrients.
Coconut powder is made up of the dried, ground-up meat of a mature coconut. We will talk about the industrial process in the other blog.
WHY COCONUT MILK POWDER?
Now you would ask when we can have coconut milk then why do we need coconut milk powder to add to our pantry items. Well for primarily the same reasons you needed milk powder earlier.
In this fast-paced world and life. At times many of us do not have time and access to fresh coconut or coconut milk, sometimes due to lack of time and sometimes due to lack of resources, we need an alternative to fresh, liquid coconut milk and coconut milk powder can be that alternative.
Plus not everyone has the time or luxury of breaking, scraping and then squeezing fresh coconut milk every day, in pursuit of the freshest coconut milk.
Without compromising on nutrition, you can carry your stock of coconut milk powder to enjoy your vegan tea, coffee, smoothie and what not.
COCONUT MILK POWDER has many cooking and baking related applications as well.
Few reasons as to why you should keep coconut milk powder in your pantry.
Convenience: It is convenient to use. You don’t have to take the pain of removing coconut flesh and extracting mylk out of it. All you have to do is just add warm water to Coconut Milk Powder and you can use it. Especially when you need a slight amount of it for some recipe.
Easy Storage: It is easy to store. Unliked the canned coconut milk which can’t be stored for long. This can be stored for long and used for months if stored under the right conditions.
Wide Range of Applications: Vegan cooking requires plant-based milk ingredients often and not always it is so easy to make or access them. You can use this for a wide range of cooking and baking related applications starting from morning tea to lunch tofu curry and dinner smoothie.
Nutrition Rich: Coconut powder contains high levels of healthy saturated fats like MCFAs (medium-chain fatty acids). MCFAs assists in supporting a more healthy metabolism and balancing your blood sugar levels, among many other things.
And for the same reasons and gap in the market, Plantmade is coming up with its own COCONUT powder that you can buy and put in your pantry for a healthier, more versatile and convenient vegan cooking.
