It's another non-dairy, non-allergen choice  :D,

Don't give up your calcium/vit D tablet!...  According to nutrition label it has 10% 100mg calcium and a small amount of vitamin D, but reading the ingredient list it does say it contains calcium phosphate. What it does have is 50% B12 and medium chain fatty acids which are a little more digestible (used faster) than the fatty acids from animal sources. Regardless, try it you might find it more palatable than soy or rice milk.

New the world's first (that we know of) coconut milk beverage is now So Delicious!
Slide over soymilk and move over dairy milk, something new and exciting is coming to the milk isle, So Delicious® Coconut Milk Beverage! Enjoy it on cereal, in coffee, in recipes or just in a tall glass. One sip and you will say, "Wow, that is So Delicious!"

I'm placing this in two places just in case...sorry about the repetative placement Revised...this product contains 10% calcium RDA or 100mgs

Hmmm, going back and revisiting the nutrition label on this product it now says it contains 10% of calcium or 100mg per 1 8oz serving. I wonder if there must have been a typo on the website that someone just caught.

Good to know..I'll need to update the orginal post.:)

I was just coming on here to look for your info. on this product.  I *hate* coconut in all it's forms - flakes, cream, flour, just the general flavor.  Blech.  so I put off coconut milk for-ever.  But now that I"m trying to switch my hubby (and possibly daughter) off of dairy milk, we're doing a milk taste test this week at my house.  We tried the coconut first - I love it!!!  It tastes very similar to skim milk, whereas the almond milk did not.  I was SO surprised that it does not taste like coconut!!  I even drank it plain! 

But I noticed there's 5g of saturated fat per serving, and wondered if that was OK.  I guess it is, since you told us about it :P

Just for kicks, I even put half coconut milk and half skim milk in Sarah's sippy cup this morning - she didn't even notice!!

Hi Laura,

As long as you're not suffering from cramps or other pain related issues the saturated fats are not a problem. I only worry about those who consume a lot of animal saturated fats along with plant saturated fats with continued inflammation. It all adds up. However saying that, the medium chain sat fats in coconut are digested faster in those who have good pancreatic function.

You should be just fine with this product. Coconut milk is especially a good milk replacement in cooking. We need a new name for coconut milk in a can vs. coconut milk beverage in a carton. ;)

yay!  No, we don't consume a lot of animal fat, I don't think.  I'm also trying to switch hubby over, and probably the 3 1/2 year old as well.  The little one still gets cheese, yogurt, and other additional sources of calcium, so that should be fine, right? 

I agree, they need to amend their packaging name for this stuff!  I would have tried it long ago!

by the way, we tried Hemp milk last night....blech!!!  Oh man, it was foul!!

Hah, yes you have to try other brands of Hemp milk. I found one that I liked...Living Harvest in vanilla, but the hemp protein is good. livingharvest.com/

As far as dairy being okay in small amounts, please consider having your little one tested for casein antibodies to be certain. Enterolab tests for casein, and they are the least expensive I've found.
