Note: in colder weather Coconut Cream Concentrate will become hard, due to the high amount of natural coconut oil and fiber. It needs to be warmed to liquefy. But this is a food, not a cooking oil. If you use high heat, it will burn.
How is Coconut Cream Concentrate™ different from canned coconut milks and creams?
Commercial coconut milks and creams are generally sold in cans, or sometimes boxes and tetra packs. The main ingredient in these products is water.
If the fat content is 17%, it is called "coconut milk." If the fat content is 24%, it is called "coconut cream."
But most of what you are purchasing is water.
Coconut Cream Concentrate, on the other hand, has NO water, and is pure coconut.
Unlike the commercial varieties, it also contains ALL the fiber of the coconut.
Pure, dried coconut contains more fiber per gram than even oat bran! This fiber has been stripped out of commercial coconut milks and coconut creams.
Also, almost all commercial coconut milks and creams have additives to prevent the water from separating from the coconut oil, and also have sulfites added to keep it white longer.
Sometimes these additives are so small, that the FDA does not require them to list them on their labels as ingredients.
Coconut Cream Concentrate, however, contains NO additives and NO preservatives at all: it is 100% natural coconut made from Philippine coconuts grown without pesticides or fertilizers.
Coconut Cream Concentrate comes packaged in 1 pint or 1 quart glass jars.
