Our factory in Sri Lanka is BRC A grade certified, our production process is UHT or ‘Ultra High-Temperature processing’, it is a way of sterilising liquid food, like coconut milk. The liquid is heated for 2-5 seconds at 135°– hot enough to kill bacteria. The product is aseptically packed, you can keep our organic coconut milk/cream in ambient temperature when storing. The 20-litre bags come in a bag or in a box format or in 200-litre bags in drums.

Organic Vegan Gluten-Free Coconut Milk Powder

Organic Vegan Gluten-Free Coconut Milk Powder

Organic Vegan Coconut Milk Powder (dairy-free) is fast becoming a popular product for many food businesses.

Organic Vegan Coconut Milk Powder Benefits

With the growing number of Australian’s following a vegan and gluten-free diet these days, Organic Vegan Coconut Milk Powder is fast becoming a ‘must-have’ ingredient.  It contains ‘good fats’ (Medium-Chain Fatty Acids). This means your liver can metabolise coconut milk more efficiently, which lets your body use more of the energy and store less of the fat.

It is reported that the acids in coconut milk may reduce inflammation and have anti-viral and anti-bacterial effects. The minerals in coconut milk (magnesium, potassium, iron) may improve circulation and lessen muscle tension, as well as increase hair and skin health from the inside out.

What does this mean for your business? Vegan Coconut Milk products can be offered to your consumers as a health food and as a dairy alternative.

What makes our Coconut Milk Powder, organic and vegan?

Simple ingredients:

  • Organic Coconut Milk – extracted from mature coconuts and spray-dried into powder form.
  • Organically Certified Tapioca maltodextrin
  • Traditional Coconut milk powder contains sodium caseinate aka casein. Casein is commonly found in animal and human milk, but  Franklands Organic vegan coconut milk powder does not contain sodium caseinate.

Wholesale Vegan Coconut Milk Powder and your business:

Coconut Product Packaging : Life On A Shelf

Coconut Product Packaging : Life On A Shelf

The importance of packaging and storage for retail coconut products

The health benefits of coconut and their related products have been widely espoused over a number of years. Coconut is naturally rich in fibre and packed with many beneficial vitamins and minerals. It is important to correctly package and storage of coconut products so that the aroma, quality and freshness of the product is maintained. This helps to “lock-in” the health benefits for consumers and extends the shelf life of coconut products in a retail environment.

 

Coconut food packaging – Why is it important?

Food packaging plays a vital role in maintaining coconut food quality and safety during handling and transportation. It helps to protect the coconut product from the following, which could contaminate or degrade the product:

  • Harmful chemicals
  • Air
  • Moisture
  • Microorganisms
  • Leakages

Ineffective packaging can result in the coconut product spoiling after a short period of time. If packaging procedures are not completely hygienic, consumers face a risk of coming into contact with bacteria or contaminants.

The life span of food packaging begins from the point of production and packing right through to the eventual disposal by an end-user. Consumers are increasingly demanding a wide range of dry and liquid coconut products throughout the year in various package volumes. Packaging has become essential to ensure coconut products are safe for consumption, and as a way to extend the product shelf life.

One method used by Franklands to ensure the highest qualities of food safety is aseptic processing and packaging. Using this method, food is sterilised outside the container, placed in previously sterilised containers, and then sealed in an aseptic environment. This system uses ultrahigh temperature (UHT) sterilisation, which as the name suggests, is a treatment delivered at extremely high temperatures.

 

Coconut food storage tips

Coconut food packaging is an important element of extending the shelf life of the product – as is the correct storage of both dry and liquid foods. Franklands offers helpful tips on optimal storage methods across our range through product specification sheets. Here are some coconut storage tips:

Coconut oil – Store in a dry place at an ambient temperature, away from direct sunlight. This product will solidify and become cloudy below 25 degrees Celsius. Before dispensing, gradually thaw above the melting point.

Coconut milk – Store and transport in a clean, dry environment away from sunlight or other direct heat sources. Ideal storage temperature is 25 + 5 degrees Celsius to ensure quality, safety and stability during shelf life.

Coconut chips – Store in odour free area, out of sunlight and away from walls. Avoid storage in high moisture areas.

Bulk Coconut Cream – Decadent, yet healthy

Bulk Coconut Cream – Decadent, yet healthy

Many previous Franklands Foods blogs have focused on the health benefits of our delicious range of bulk coconut products. In this piece, we introduce the luxurious, decadent member of our coconut family – Coconut Cream!

Bulk Coconut cream – What is it?

Coconut cream is produced by extracting pure coconut milk from fresh, matured coconut kernels. It is similar to coconut milk, but the main difference is the consistency and fat content. Coconut cream has a thicker consistency than coconut milk, and averages a higher fat content of 24%. Commercial food manufacturers typically use coconut cream when a thicker, smoother consistency is required for the final product.

Bulk coconut cream – How is it used?

Coconut cream is a popular choice for food manufacturers seeking to inject a smooth, exotic flavour into their sweet or savoury dishes. Coconut cream can be used to “cool down” the heat of a spicy curry, to appeal to consumers who prefer milder dishes. It can also be used as a substitute to dairy cream in a wide range of sweet dishes and desserts.

Coconut cream is a delicious addition to the following foods:

Sweet

  • Yoghurts
  • Ice cream
  • Coconut rice pudding
  • Cheese cakes
  • Pavlova
  • Cakes
  • Cocktails (eg. Pina Colada)

Savoury

  • Curries
  • Soups

Bulk coconut cream – What are the health benefits?

Coconut cream is 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.

Bulk Coconut cream is also additive-free, and is processed via UHT (Ultra-High Temperature) to sterilise the liquid food and prolong its shelf life.

Coconut cream suppliers – What to look for?

In order to ensure the high quality and purity of the raw coconut ingredients, it is essential to source a quality wholesaler of bulk coconut cream. 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. Franklands coconut cream is aseptically packed to preserve freshness and wholesomeness of the product.

Bulk coconut cream purchases can deliver your business sizeable savings over the long term. Bulk coconut cream can be purchased in 20 and 200 litre packages from Franklands, and all bulk products are competitively priced in the market. Franklands always strives for reliable and speedy delivery of products, Australia-wide, from our Melbourne warehouse.

Bulk Coconut Flour – A healthy injection to any recipe

Bulk Coconut Flour – A healthy injection to any recipe

Coconut flour is one of the lesser-known forms of coconut, but it acts as a versatile and highly nutritious alternative to wheat flour and nut-based flours such as almond. As a low carbohydrate flour, it is ideal for baking in both sweet and savoury dishes, and a great choice for food manufacturers who are seeking to create gluten-free, paleo food products.

Bulk Coconut Flour – What is it and how is it used?
Coconut flour is the dried flesh from a coconut, ground down into a fine powder. The coconut meat is removed from the coconut shell, strained and separated from the milk, and then baked at a low temperature until it becomes completely dry. The resulting product is then finely ground to produce a flour that is purely made of coconut.

Bulk coconut flour is highly absorbent, therefore extra liquid (eg. eggs or water) may be required if it is being used as a substitute for wheat-based flour. The upside is that only a small amount of coconut milk is required to produce a delicious sweet or savoury dish.

Here are some common uses for coconut flour:

Savoury
– Breadcrumbs substitute
– Pizza crust
– Wraps
– Thickener for soups
– Bread

Sweet
– Buns
– Pancakes
– Muffins
– Cupcakes
– Brownies
– Crepes

Why use coconut flour compared with other flour alternatives?

Coconut flour is widely considered as more nutritious than wheat-based flour as it is less processed and does not require fortification. Almond flour is another popular alternative, as it is high in nutrients and also gluten-free. Coconut flour is, however, higher in fibre and lower in calories than the almond equivalent. Plus it is nut-free, making it a safe choice for those with nut allergies.

Bulk coconut flour – What are the health benefits?

The health benefits of coconut flour are very impressive, and are increasingly sought-after by health-conscious consumers:

1. High in fibre – The meat of the coconut is extremely high in fibre. In fact, it supplies over 60% of dietary fibre. This fibre helps move toxins and waste along the digestive track.
2. Aids digestive health – Coconut flour is nutrient dense, to help maintain gut health.
3. Boosts metabolism – Coconut flour contains large amounts of medium chain saturated fats (MCFA), which the body can use for energy.
4. Assists in maintaining stable blood sugar levels – As a low glycemic food, coconut flour help maintain steady blood sugar levels. This is incredibly important for diabetics and people aiming to maintain a healthy body weight.
