And that’s a good thing. Not only does this creamy delight taste great on its own, it can be used in a wide array of recipes.

Coconut Milk: BPA Dangers
Most canned coconut milk is contaminated with bisphenol-a (BPA). This chemical is a known hormone disruptor. It is also linked to chromosomal and reproductive system abnormalities, impaired brain and neurological function, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, early puberty and obesity… just to name a few.
And unfortunately, this insidious compound is used in the liners of almost ALL canned foods. That’s why it is found in many brands of coconut milk.
