So, what exactly is organic coconut milk powder? Essentially, it is coconut milk in powdered form, derived from the meat of mature coconuts. 

Through innovative spray drying technology, coconut milk is transformed into a fine white powder, retaining its natural flavor and texture. This powder form extends its shelf life and broadens its culinary applications, making it a versatile ingredient in various products.

Ever wondered how coconut milk powder is made? Let’s take a peek into the production process. 

Hand-selected organic coconuts undergo meticulous processing, from washing and grinding to extraction. The resulting coconut milk is mixed with organic additives, spray-dried, and meticulously packaged for consumer use. 

These organic additives are used not as fillers—they are incorporated to prevent the product from clumping and ensure smooth flowability throughout the production process. The Coconut Cooperative uses the minimum amount of excipients necessary to provide the most stable product and we are constantly working on ways to use less.

Shelf life

Coconut milk powder boasts a longer shelf life compared to its liquid counterpart. Due to its reduced moisture content and rigorous production techniques, it remains free from undesirable microorganisms and ensures freshness for up to 24 months.

To maintain the freshness of coconut milk powder, it’s best to store it in a cool, dry place away from sunlight, heat, or moisture. It is vital to note that storing them in very cold conditions can cause the product to clump or harden. Thus, it is essential to store them in cool storage but not in the refrigerator. When ready to use, allow the product to gradually come up to room temperature, and avoid quick heating.
