Coconut Milk is the oil-protein-water emulsion obtained by squeezing fresh grated coconut kernel. The undiluted and diluted forms are called coconut milk and the concentrated form is coconut cream. Coconut milk is obtained by extraction of fresh coconut wet gratings with or without water. This is an instant product, which can either be used directly/diluted with water to make various preparations such as fish & meat dishes, curries, sweets, deserts, puddings, cocktails, cakes, cookies, coconut jam, ice creams etc. It can also be used in the manufacture of bakery products and for coconut milk flavouring food stuffs. Preserved forms of coconut milk such as canned cream or milk and dehydrated whole milk are now available in many coconut growing countries. Commercial production of these products has been promoted in the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Western Samoa, Sri Lanka and Malaysia and to some extent in India. Indonesia is the leading exporter of coconut milk followed by Sri Lanka, Thailand and Philippines.
