Coconut Cream

Coconut Cream

When one thinks of Asian cuisine, their mind generally traces to savoury foods but there is one secret little ingredient that is commonly used in both savoury and sweet Asian cuisine... Coconut Cream.

Coconut cream is followed with a general stereotype that most foods with the word 'cream' are accustomed to. Yes, it is high in saturated fat, but that does not necessarily mean it is 'bad' for you and that you should avoid it. In fact, the saturated fat contained in coconut cream is actually good fat that your body can metabolise and quickly turn into energy without raising your cholesterol levels. Other health benefits include:

·         Scientists and researchers have been encouraging mothers to feed their infants with breast milk because the nutrients in it can help infants fight off intrusive viruses and bacteria

·         Coconut cream contains lauric acid -- the same type of saturated fat found in abundance in human breast milk

Not only does coconut cream have a vast range of health benefits, it also is a universal ingredient that can be used for a range of sweet and savoury dishes.  AHG Coconut Cream is a wonderful  quick mix that gives you the delightful taste of fresh coconut cream in seconds.  Ideal for use in Asian recipes such as curries, Asian desserts and even for westernised recipes replacing milk or cream.  All you need to do is add water and stir.
