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.

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.

This recipe can also be sweetened with your choice of natural sweetener or flavoured with a natural flavouring extract.

Franklands organic desiccated coconut can be used to make deliciously soft and chewy vegan coconut cookies or even vegan coconut macaroons.
