Oh, thanks for that. I just went to my co-op's website and see they carry the very same kind. I had to wonder just a little bit when I read the text next to the product:
"Powdered Coconut Milk. Naturally sweet. This natural coconut milk powder is made from the milk of the coconut with a simple spray drying process. It is naturally sweet and works wonderfully for curries, puddings, smoothies and other dishes. It is made for Wilderness Family Naturals in the Philippines.
INGREDIENTS: Coconut Milk, Maltodextrin, Sodium Casinate. "
Naturally my evil ducky mind wants to know why they put those other 2 ingredients in the mix. I thought it was interesting that it says "naturally sweet" but adds maltodextrin which is a sweetener...funny. And the sodium Casinate? Here's what Wikipedia says:
"Casein has a molecular structure quite similar to that of gluten. Thus, some gluten-free diets are combined with casein-free diets and referred to as a gluten-free, casein-free diet. Casein is often listed as sodium caseinate, calcium caseinate or milk protein. These are often found in energy bars, drinks, and packaged goods. A small fraction of the population is allergic to casein."
Darn! I wonder if there is a way to get coconut powder that doesn't have casein in it. Well, with these little tasty treats (halvah) you're not going to be eating them all the time. and besides, your daughter can probably eat them. I'll have to shop around and see if I can find something. Waahtdahyabet, with the popularity of coconut products someone will come up with a purer version of coconut powder. Maybe we should write Wilderness Family Naturals and ask them.
Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
