This 100% pure coconut milk in aseptic packs with no stabilizers, thickeners, gums, or preservatives has won many awards for taste and quality. Unlike most of the coconut milk products available in the US, Aroy-D coconut milk is not diluted, which means no additives are needed. The product is packaged in modern paper cartons to eliminate the issue of BPA contamination that comes with packaging in cans. The shelf life is one year. Consistency is nice and creamy. The 8.5 ounce containers also mean less waste when recipes call for smaller amounts of coconut milk.
