Did you know you can make coconut milk from unsweetened coconut flakes? If you want to avoid the BPA in cans, you can make your own coconut milk at home.
Bisphenol A (BPA) is an industrial chemical that is in many hard plastic bottles and metal-based food and beverage cans since the 1960s.
Both the National Toxicology Program at the National Institutes of Health and FDA have some concern about the potential effects of BPA on the brain, behavior, and prostate gland in fetuses, infants, and young children. (Source)
Canned coconut milk also usually has additives including thickeners (such as cornstarch), stabilizers and emulsifiers. Carrageenan, guar gum and carboxy methyl cellulose are common additives.
If you are on the GAPS Diet, you need to avoid all additives in coconut milk. It is best to make your own at home. You’ll be surprised at how easy it is!
