Many previous Franklands Foods blogs have focused on the health benefits of our delicious range of bulk coconut products. In this piece, we introduce the luxurious, decadent member of our coconut family – Coconut Cream!
Coconut cream is produced by extracting pure coconut milk from fresh, matured coconut kernels. It is similar to coconut milk, but the main difference is the consistency and fat content. Coconut cream has a thicker consistency than coconut milk, and averages a higher fat content of 24%. Commercial food manufacturers typically use coconut cream when a thicker, smoother consistency is required for the final product.
Coconut cream is a popular choice for food manufacturers seeking to inject a smooth, exotic flavour into their sweet or savoury dishes. Coconut cream can be used to “cool down” the heat of a spicy curry, to appeal to consumers who prefer milder dishes. It can also be used as a substitute to dairy cream in a wide range of sweet dishes and desserts.
Coconut cream is a great dairy-free alternative to cow’s milk-based products. Coconut is rich in fibre and packed with many beneficial vitamins and minerals. Coconut milk contains lauric acid which is a medium-chain fatty acid (MCFA). Medium-chain fatty acids are unlike other fats because they are metabolised differently by the body. These fatty acids increase metabolism and are not stored within the body, but used as a quick source of energy by the liver.
Bulk Coconut cream is also additive-free, and is processed via UHT (Ultra-High Temperature) to sterilise the liquid food and prolong its shelf life.
In order to ensure the high quality and purity of the raw coconut ingredients, it is essential to source a quality wholesaler of bulk coconut cream. Ask questions about whether the manufacturer meets international quality standards for food processing (e.g. ISO 22000) and that the products are packaged correctly to make sure the natural benefits of the coconut are not compromised. Franklands coconut cream is aseptically packed to preserve freshness and wholesomeness of the product.
