Why coconut milk and oil are popular?

Coconut milk is made from the pulp and water of a coconut fruit (i.e. drupe, less precisely nut of a coconut tree). In another words, coconut milk is the liquid that comes from the grated meat of a brown coconut. A coconut fruit, a drupe with a very thick husk and a hard shell, is one of the biggest seeds in the nature’s realm. From its pulp are made many items, such as dried coconut meat, coconut milk, coconut cream, coconut flour or coconut oil.

Coconut milk is an alternative for people suffering from allergies with animal milk, people with lactose intolerance, people not considering animal milk healthy or people who do not consume animal milk because of various, such as philosophical, religious or ethical, reasons (e.g. vegans). But those who usually use cow’s or other mammals’ milk in cooking, may also highly value the different taste and aroma of coconut milk and make use of it to enrich the meal menu.

Consumption of coconut milk does not increase the risk of cardiovascular illnesses; on the contrary, it has many benefits to our health.
