Think you know Coconut Milk? Well think again… sure ya might know the better-known basics about the many benefits of opting for coconut milks over dairy-based milks… but what about the nitty gritty specifics? We’re talking what goes into the packaging, how the coconuts are farmed and a closer look into the ingredients lists… just to name a few! Because sometimes it’s not just about the product itself – it’s what goes into the product that makes a difference! ENJOY!

What You DON’T Know About Coconut Milks

I know what you’re thinking… “oh great, another blog post on Coconut Milks… BORING”, BUT this isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill coconut milk post – I promise! Today it’s all about the company that actually produces the coconut milks and what goes on behind the scenes in the coconut milk industry! Because it’s 2018 & we are ALL about transparency! So without further ado… here’s a closer look into Cha’s Organics, the makers of Curry Masala Spiced Coconut Milk!

  1. 1% of sales go toward protecting Sri Lanka’s Wild Elephants – Talk about starting this list off with a bang! In comparison to one century ago, today in Sri Lanka there are over 75% less elephants due to poaching, illegal trading and poor living conditions. Cha’s Organics wanted to make a difference and decided to partner with the award-winning Sri Lanka Wildlife Conservation Society(SLWCS), donating 1% of all Cha’s Organics Coconut Milksales to help protect Sri Lanka’s wild elephants!
  2. The cans are BPA free – Okay so FIRST off… what exactly is BPA? We hear this term a lot, but I’m going to go ahead and guess that a lot of you don’t know what it means… I sure didn’t! That was until I did a little bit of research! BPA stands for bisphenol A, and is an industrial chemical utilized in the making of certain plastics! Some research has shown that BPA can seep into foods or beverages from containers that are made with BPA. Which in my opinion… is no bueno! The great news? Cha’s Organics cans are actually BPA free!
  3. They are certified Fair Trade & Organic – From the very beginning, Cha’s Organics has always pledged to partake in Fair Trade farming practices; AKA all of Chas Organics Products have been Fair Trade from day one! That’s pretty incredible! And not only do their partner farmers benefit from ongoing training on traditional and biodynamic organic farming methods… this allows them to farm without the use of harmful or chemical agents. So yep…. They’re products are certified organic to boot!!! Woohoo!
  4. The Money from Fair Trade Practices Goes Back into the Community – This is probably one of my favourite parts about Cha’s Organics farming partnerships and practices! Part of the Fair Trade money is used to funnel back into the local farming community! They’re used to purchase school supplies, build community centers, provide local drinking water supply, and equip women with the tools and training they need to become more financially secure. AMAZING!!!!
  5. It adds a ton of flavour to your dishes – So in comparison to what we’ve been talking about, this little tidbit may seem superficial and surface level… BUT the taste of the product you’re buying is pretty important nonetheless! Cha’s Organics Curry Masala Spiced Coconut Milk is filled with incredibly vibrant and flavourful Indian spices. This coconut milk has the potential to pack a powerful, flavour profile! It’s best used in curries… try incorporating this variety of coconut milk into the original flavour into your next vegetable curry! We promise it will just give it that little added kick!

So will you be looking at coconut milk a little differently now?!
