Best Brand: Native Forest Coconut Milk

by Kelley Herring on February 4, 2014

If you’ve gone dairy-free or adopted a Paleo style of eating, you may have added coconut milk to your list of culinary staples.

Coconut milk boosts fat-burning thanks to a special kind of fat called medium chain triglycerides.

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 is low in carbohydrates and provides a bevy of health benefits. It is a rich source of metabolism-boosting fats called medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) and the anti-fungal compound, lauric acid.

But there is something you should know…

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.

Native Forest Coconut Milk: Delicious, Organic & BPA-Free

But not Native Forest Organic Coconut Milk!

By choosing Native Forest, you can enjoy all the health benefits coconut milk… without the BPA.

So, look for it at your local health food store (or  or Whole Foods market) for around $3.29/can. You can also buy direct from their website – –  and get a discount of around 10 percent when you buy 12 or more.

  1. Hi,
    After I had bought all your books and confirmed my subscription to your newsletter, a pop-up asked if I wanted a free report about what could be dangerous in a low-carb diet (it could have been low fat). I clicked on it and was asked to confirm again, but never got the report. When I returned to the newsletter, there was the offer for the three downloads about low glycemic diets, budget organics and meal planning. I gladly took them, but am still wondering about the first pop-up. Where did it go and how do I get it?

    Thanks for all this information. I look forward to using it.
