Coconut Milk vs Coconut Cream
So what are the differences between coconut milk and coconut cream? They are essentially made from the same ingredients, but coconut cream has a higher fat content than coconut milk, therefore it is thicker. Your choice will depend on the consistency you are trying to achieve for your product.
Bulk Coconut Milk and Coconut Cream – What are the health benefits?
Coconut milk and cream are a great dairy-free alternative to cow’s milk based products. Coconut is rich in fibre and packed with many beneficial vitamins and minerals. Coconut milk contains lauric acid which is a medium-chain fatty acid (MCFA). Medium-chain fatty acids are unlike other fats because they are metabolised differently by the body. These fatty acids increase metabolism and are not stored within the body but used as a quick source of energy by the liver.
Coconut milk is also additive-free, and is processed via UHT (Ultra-High Temperature) to sterilize the liquid food and prolong it’s shelf life.

Ask questions about whether the manufacturer meets international quality standards for food processing (e.g. ISO 22000) and that the products are packaged correctly to make sure the natural benefits of the coconut are not compromised.
