Ever wonder where coconuts come from?

Coconuts, originating from Southeast Asia and nearby islands, have been known for centuries. Named "Coco" by Portuguese sailors, they're famed for their smiling, face-like holes. Today, coconut milk enriches South Asian and Thai cuisine, lending creaminess and nutrients like vitamins C, E, and B, and heart-healthy fats to dishes, like Thai curry.

 Let’s find out how Coconut Milk is made! 

Coconut milk is made by grating the flesh of mature coconuts and then squeezing it through a cheesecloth to extract the liquid. This creamy liquid is coconut milk, which can be used in various dishes and beverages to add flavor and richness.

How do we, at Hye Foods, make our Coconut Milk Powder? 

At Hye Foods, we use spray drying to create our Coconut Milk Powder. We start by spray-drying mature coconut meat, then add emulsifiers to turn it into a fine powder. This method ensures freshness. To enjoy, simply mix 2 tablespoons of our powder with 200ml of warm water.

How is Coconut Milk Different from Coconut Water?

Coconut milk is made by grating the flesh of mature coconuts and extracting the liquid, resulting in a creamy, rich substance used in cooking and beverages. Coconut water, on the other hand, is the clear liquid found inside young, green coconuts, known for its refreshing taste and hydrating properties.

Why do we recommend Coconut Milk?

Coconut milk is recommended for its rich flavor and versatility in cooking. It adds a creamy texture to dishes, particularly in South Asian and Thai cuisines. Additionally, it offers health benefits such as being lactose-free, rich in nutrients like vitamins C, E, and B, and containing healthy fats beneficial for heart health.

Coconuts help maintain the ecological balance since the amount of water, energy, and fertilizer required to grow them is way too little compared to other plants.
