Ease of transportation makes this ingredient a viable alternative to coconut milk liquid.
Sternchemie GmbH & Co. KG (Hamburg, Germany) is now a supplier of coconut milk powder. Made from real coconut meats, Sternchemie’s (Hamburg, Germany) powder is intended to provide the same sensory, nutritional, and flavor profile of coconut as it is found in nature.
A quick-dissolving ingredient suitable for both wet and dry products, SternCream coconut milk powder is derived from coconut meats that are washed, minced, and pressed before being double-filtrated and pasteurized. The resulting ingredient is prepared for market in a spray-dried form. Because the water content of the ingredient is so low, the company says this coconut milk powder has a shelf life of nearly 24 months. The company ensures that gentle processing preserves all of the original coconut nutrients.
Unlike coconut flavors and extracts, SternCream is clean-label friendly. And its powder format allows for easier transportation than liquid coconut milks. Use this product for its mild coconut flavor or to enhance the mouthfeel properties of a variety of products, including baked goods, beverages, and confectionery.
