This rich and creamy organic coconut milk comes from the finest Sri Lankan coconuts which are simply shelled, shredded, pressed and filtered. With its mildly sweet flavour it is ideal for use in Oriental and Indian dishes such as curries, soups and stir-fries as well as a dairy alternative in desserts and baking.
No additives, preservatives or thickeners
Clearspring coconut milk has been packed in cans which have not been coated with BPA – known as with BPA n.i. (non intent). This means that PBA has not been added to the plastic lining in the tin but it is not BPA free as the manufacturer cannot guarantee that cross contamination has not occurred. Most other brands have not taken this step as it is more expensive to produce.
What is BPA?
Bisphenol A is a chemical used to make plastics including materials that come into contact with food such as refillable drinks bottles and food storage containers. It's also used to make protective coatings and linings for food and drinks cans. It is permitted for use by the European Commission under Regulation 10/2011/EU but not for use in infant feeding bottles.
Is BPA in food harmful?
Minute amounts of BPA can transfer from packaging into food and drinks, but independent experts have advised that these levels of exposure are not considered to be harmful. Independent studies have shown that, even when consumed at high levels, BPA is rapidly absorbed, detoxified, and eliminated from humans and, therefore, is not a health concern even though there have been unsubstantiated claims that BPA may have the potential to interact with our hormone systems, also referred to as 'endocrine disrupters'.
