Coconut Products for the Food Services Industry

Coconut Products for the Food Services Industry

Coconut is such a versatile ingredient. From coconut cream to coconut water and even desiccated coconut, the uses for this ingredient are endless. It is easy to see why many businesses in the food services industry use coconut and coconut products in their menu offerings.
Not only is coconut a versatile ingredient, but it is also extremely healthy. Low in carbs and high in healthy fats, coconut also contains protein, several important minerals as well as B vitamins.

Franklands Foods supply a variety of wholesale coconut products to the food services industry. We specialise in wholesale coconut products ranging from coconut milk to coconut oil. Below are some examples of the uses for coconut products in the food services industry.

Coconut products crucial to the restaurant industry

Coconut products are widely used in a range of different restaurants. Coconut milk is especially popular in Thai restaurants. Aside from curry paste, coconut milk is the second most important ingredient when preparing a Thai curry dish. Restaurants using such large quantities of coconut milk benefit from purchasing through a wholesale supplier such as Franklands. Franklands Organic Coconut Milk is 100% additive free and does not separate like store-bought brands of coconut milk do.
Some examples of delicious Thai dishes which showcase coconut milk as the hero ingredient include Massaman Beef Curry, Thai Green Chicken Curry (Gang Keow Wan), and Steamed Red Fish Curry (Haw Mok Plaa)

Other kinds of restaurants such as Malaysian, Indian, Sri Lankan and Vietnamese also use coconut products in their menus. Coconut milk is not only used in curries but also in desserts and can even be used to make rice. Coconut rice can be made using Franklands Organic Coconut Milk and is a delicious alternative to regular rice, which adds an extra depth of flavour to the dishes that it is paired with.

Coconut products for cafes: Delicious Coconut Beverages

Cafes are benefiting from the health benefits and rising popularity of coconut and coconut products.
The uses for coconut products in the café industry are endless. Coconut smoothies healthy, filling and delicious. They are also a great Ketogenic menu offering to cater to customers who follow a Keto diet. By combining fresh strawberries and organic coconut cream along with the optional addition of a natural sweetener, you can create a beautiful but healthy “strawberries and cream” smoothie.

Another rising trend hitting the café industry is superfood lattes. Cafes are striving to create unique variations of the regular caffe latte. This includes turmeric lattes, beetroot lattes and purple ube lattes. Coconut milk can be used to create a deliciously nutty and creamy coconut latte. This can either be served as a warm drink or can even be created as an iced coconut latte.

Coconut Milk Supplier: A Vegan Superfood

Coconut Milk Supplier: A Vegan Superfood

What is Coconut Milk and what is it used for?

Coconut milk is the liquid that comes from the grated meat of mature coconuts. Coconut milk is widely used in the food manufacturing industry due to its versatility and beautifully unique nutty flavour. Wholesale organic coconut milk is also a key ingredient in the vegan food industry, as it is a nutritious dairy-free milk alternative.

Wholesale coconut milk: Vital for the Vegan food industry

As the demand for vegan friendly food products is steadily increasing, it is important for food manufacturers to consider creating products for the vegan food market, if they aren’t doing so already.
According to recent market research, Australia is one to watch when it comes to the demand for vegan friendly products. It is projected to continue as the third-fastest-growing vegan market in the world.

Wholesale coconut milk is a vital ingredient when it comes to producing high quality, nutritious vegan food products. Coconut milk and cream can be used to produce a wide variety of food products including dairy-free yoghurts and ice cream, nutritious and creamy vegan curries and soups, as well as dairy free smoothies and other vegan desserts.

There are many benefits of adding coconut-based products to your product offerings. For example, ice cream manufacturers who opt to add a vegan coconut ice cream to their range are not only expanding their reach to target the growing number of vegan consumers.  These manufacturers are also creating a product that can be marketed as a more nutritious alternative to regular ice cream, as coconut is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. When adding coconut products to your product range it is important to choose the right coconut milk supplier. Here at Franklands we are committed to working with our customers on new product development, so you can get your coconut-based products to market with confidence.

Choosing a Coconut Milk Supplier

At Franklands, we supply bulk organic coconut milk and cream to food manufacturers in various sizes ranging from 20kg bags in a box to 1000kg IBC tanks. As a coconut milk wholesaler we can guarantee very competitive prices while not compromising on quality.

Desiccated Coconut

Desiccated Coconut

At Franklands Foods, we are passionate about coconut. It is such a versatile ingredient and can come in many forms such as oil, milk, water and powder – just to name a few.
Desiccated coconut is another popular coconut product both in the food manufacturing industry and also as a household pantry staple. Desiccated coconut is made from coconut flesh and is finely ground, with most of the moisture removed. The coconut flesh is dehydrated and grated without the use of preservatives, additives or sweeteners.

Wholesale desiccated coconut is commonly used in the food industry due to its delicious nutty flavour and unique blending properties. Food manufacturers can use this nutrient-packed superfood to boost the flavour and nutritional content of their muesli bars, cereals, granola, biscuits and protein balls. Our organic and conventional desiccated coconut is rich in a number of essential nutrients, including manganese, copper, and iron.

Turn Desiccated Coconut into delicious coconut butter

Did you know that desiccated coconut can be used to make a luxurious coconut butter? Perfect as a vegan alternative to regular butter, coconut butter can be used on top of pancakes, waffles, banana bread, muffins and even in smoothies.

Coconut butter is made by adding desiccated coconut to a food processor and “churning” until it turns into a creamy butter. This can take some time but the result is deliciously creamy, nutty, rich and healthy coconut butter. This recipe can also be sweetened with your choice of natural sweetener or flavoured with a natural flavouring extract.

Wholesale Desiccated Coconut perfect for vegan food manufacturing

Organic desiccated coconut is packed with nutrients and delicious in flavour, which makes it the perfect ingredient in vegan treats. Franklands organic desiccated coconut can be used to make deliciously soft and chewy vegan coconut cookies or even vegan coconut macaroons. Regular macaroons use egg white to bind the ingredients, but the combination of desiccated coconut, coconut milk and corn starch bind these macaroons together to make the perfect vegan bite-sized delights.

More and more food manufacturers are entering the growing vegan market using coconut-based products. Contact us to learn more about our organic coconut products and to place a wholesale order today.

MCT (Medium Chain Triglyceride) Powder

MCT (Medium Chain Triglyceride) powder is made from 100% coconut oil and is a natural source of healthy fats that help to support performance and energy levels.

MCT powder is also used as a supplement that has become popular among athletes, bodybuilders and consumers that are health and weight conscious. It’s odourless and tasteless making it easy to add to drinks, coffee and smoothies. Our product is 100% Pure Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) that has been extracted from Coconut Oil and is gluten-free and vegan friendly.

Our MCT Powder can be used in a variety of ways including, protein bars and smoothies, or as an additive to sports drinks or nutritional supplement shakes.

  • Matcha Smoothie Bowls
  • Blueberry Almond Protein Smoothie
  • Coconut, Cacao and Date Energy bites
  • Vanilla Berry Acai Bowls

As the product name suggests, medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil contains medium-length chains of fats, these are called triglycerides. They have a shorter length and due to this, MCTs appear to be more easily digested than longer-chain fatty acids found in many other foods. As they are metabolised differently and broken down by the body more rapidly, this has made MCT powder a popular product for those who are interested in weight loss and maintaining healthy diets.

Keto diet and MCT powder

The keto diet is rapidly growing in popularity around the world and as “Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) can be converted to ketones in our liver quickly after ingestion, this has made MCT powder a popular product for those following a Keto diet. When compared to carbohydrates, ketones are considered to be a more rapidly metabolized because they are broken down by the body more easily so are arguably a better fuel for immediate use by the brain, muscles and other organs around the body.

The keto diet is being used for weight loss, cognitive health and as an overall lifestyle improvement.
