Description Ingredients & Technical Information

Coconut Milk Powder (Cocos nucifera) is an ingredient in most Southeast Asian cooking and is not the liquid inside a coconut. It is prepared by soaking the grated flesh of a coconut in hot water or scalded milk, then straining the combination. Coconut milk is classified as thick, thin, or coconut cream. Thick coconut milk is the result of the first soaking and squeezing. If this milk is refrigerated it separates, and the top layer is the cream. Thin coconut milk is what is produced when one steeps the coconut meat a second time and then strains. Canned coconut milk, which is mostly quite good, separates naturally.

The top layer can be spooned off for recipes calling for cream, the bottom poured into thin, or just shake it up to get the most commonly called-for thick coconut milk.

Powder-like, fine texture, and white, coconut milk powder is manufactured through the spray drying process of raw unsweetened coconut cream. Very different from the more widely available and coarser desiccated coconut made from the white coconut meat, coconut milk powder is a good substitute for fresh coconut milk.

Cosmetic Uses: Add coconut milk powder to milk baths, facials, soaps, body wraps, creams and lotions.

To Make Milk Soaps Using Powdered Milk:

Since you will be using the powder the soap will not turn brown.

Add 1 oz per pound of oils in the recipe. Mix the powdered milk with just enough water to form a thin paste, and add it to the soap after it is done cooking. Mix well. Make sure your soap is fully cooked and not still caustic before you add the milk otherwise it will turn brown. You may need to give the soap a couple of days to firm up if you are using this method.

Do not try to discount the water if you are using this method. It will make it very difficult to stir the soap at the end. Just give it a few days to dry out completely.
