We do cow milk and have no problems, but I have seen this in stores and wondered about it. One thing about it is that it has very little in the way of calories.
They have to call it a beverage b/c of the dairy industry as far as I know. It doesn't taste like coconut and it is not pure coconut. We drink it all the time. It doesn't have a lot of calories but it has a lot of fat, good fat.
Ingredients (from my label): Organic coconut milk, organic dried cane syrup (we drink the original one not unsweetened), calcium phosphate, magnesuim phosphate, carrageen, guar gum, vitamin A palimate, Vitamin D-2, selenium, zinc oxide, folic acid, vitamin b-12
sat fat 5g (from the coconut so it's GOOD sat fat/brain power)
vit A 10%
vit D 30%
vit B12 50%
vit C 0%
My DD is allergic to dairy so we use this for cooking, drinking, etc
Of course a good can of coconut tasting coconut milk is good once in a while too and so good for you! It's just really rich!
