That is helpful! I really appreciate your research into this as it was confusing, especially the difference between coconut water and coconut milk. Also that Pacific Islanders eat coconuts (whole?) regularly but some of their populations suffer little in the way of heart disease. I’d be curious to know about the heart disease rate in Thailand though since their food includes so much coconut milk and is one of my favorite types of food. Again, I guess it goes back to needing to consume the whole food, not just the milk, though almond milk can be the exception here?
Thank you for sharing your insights!!! I’ve learned so much.
