Healthy food has its roots in healthy soil. Which is why Biona Organic invests so much in the organic farming industry. You will never find chemical pesticides, herbicides or genetically modified ingredients in their goods. Proof is in the ingredients listed in their products.

Veggy Malta got to try a very interesting product from Biona Organic. Their canned coconut milks are already a staple buy for most of us, however now you can also find the Golden Coconut Milk! The Biona Organic Golden Coconut Milk is a combination of coconut milk with the gentle spice and vibrance of turmeric. The addition of turmeric is a great plus as it packs a major health punch for just one ingredient! Just to mention a few, turmeric spice is a natural antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and may help to protect against memory loss.

Once the lid is peeled off, one will definitely notice the bright yellow colour from the turmeric taking over the creamy white coconut milk and is quite fascinating. The Golden Coconut Milk is made from pressed coconut kernels, and contains no artificial ingredients. As a result, the coconut fat and water content separate, but this has no impact on the quality of the product. Just a quick shake is all you need to do to combine.

Its smell is slightly spicy and wholesome, making it perfect for curries or dahls. Moreover, it’s quite rich due to the fat content of the coconut milk, making your dishes lusciously creamy. The Biona Organic Golden Coconut Milk elevates further your cooking as it gives the dish subtle spicy notes. So there is no need to throw a whole pantry of spices in your pot when you have the Golden Coconut Milk at hand!

One can also experiment using the Golden Coconut Milk as a warm and spicy beverage – just add cinnamon, ginger, a splash of vanilla and some maple syrup and you get a golden milk latte! We used the Biona Organic Golden Coconut Milk for a quick and versatile curry recipe, using all the vegetables left in the fridge.
