Nutricost coconut milk powder used to have only a single ingredient—coconut milk powder. Now it has maltodextrin and acacia fiber, which means it’s no better than anything else on the market. I used to buy exclusively this brand, but now I won’t touch it.
I’ve been trying to reduce my coffee creamer since it has casein in it (I’m allergic to casein). I mix this half and half with my creamer. It’s working. I’m craving the regular creamer less. This is quite tasty, sweet and fresh, and I’m picky!
Surprisingly dissolved readily without lumps.
This product is mixed with maltodextrin and acacia powder, increasing its calories and making for a gross taste, in my opinion. I wish I’d noticed that it doesn’t say “100%” coconut before purchasing.
You’d literally be better off just buying a giant bag of fresh biodegradable packing peanuts, and dropping those in your coffee. (That’s sarcasm, in that you shouldn’t eat non-food-grade biodegradable packing peanuts even if it does in reality taste exactly the same.) If you’ve ever eaten maltodextrin-based “dietary fiber” powder, or aforementioned biodegradable packing peanuts, you’ll immediately recognize the very distinctive taste and texture of maltodextrin.
That’s literally all my batch of this product was. It was literally all or mostly maltodextrin. (And to be fair, biodegradable packing peanuts don’t actually taste horrible.) To be fair, a little maltodextrin in otherwise pure coconut milk powder wouldn’t be a bad thing, to make it less clumpy and a little easier to mix. But they either grossly overdid it out of greed, or my batch was made after the coconut powder bin ran out.
And if you’ve ever had the equally distinct, buttery smooth, clumpy, “moist”-feeling, nutty flavor of coconut powder, you’d know there was none detectable in the batch I got. Also, this is about twice the price of other brands on amazon, of 100% pure organic coconut milk powder. So absolutely do not waste your time or money on this. (Note: In a double-blind scientific test I’m an actual “super taster”. Not all that rare, but at least legit. That doesn’t mean I’m always right or have better opinions - it’s just that it might be worth noting in this context.)
