Coconut is better than the coconut milk. any modification makes the food complicated and/or less beneficial. Try and consume coconut chewing it mindfully. If your teeth do not support, grate it manually to have the optimal benefit of this awesome food.

It does not matter, what the pH strip talks about coconut milk!

Please read the following note on pH scale. 


In brief, let us understand what is a pH scale:

Science has introduced a logarithmic scale to specify the acidity or basicity/alkalinity of an aqueous solution. Acidity and Basicity/Alkalinity are two opposite properties of an aqueous solution. Like everything else, in Nature, aqueous solutions too try to achieve a homeostatic state or the state neutrality. The neutral state of a solution is pure Water. In pH scale the value of water as defined is 7. Below 7, all the solutions are acidic and above 7, are basic/alkaline. Acid and Alkaline always try to neutralize each other to become water.

The pH value of blood is approx 7.4. That means it is almost neutral being slightly basic/alkaline. In diseased condition the pH value becomes more than 7, usually.


With this understanding we confuse ourselves by concluding that we need to make our blood alkaline to have better state of wellness!

It is another superstition!

If we make our blood highly alkaline that is also a health hazard!


Change in pH value or its Alkalinity or acidity in blood is an EFFECT of health.

The CAUSE is somewhere else!

Addressing the EFFECTS instead of addressing the CAUSE, is a limited and shallow approach.

We cannot carry a pH strip with us to measure the pH value of food that we choose to eat!

Nature has sketched an excellent indicator to identify the right food. THE VOICE OF THE ORGANISM (V/O) is that indicator. The taste sensation is one of the major executions of V/O. Other important V/O in identifying the right food are smell, sight etc. The first condition is the food should be in its natural state without any modification; then we need to use our V/O to identify if it is beneficial for us. We should feel good about the food in terms of its smell, sight and taste.If it feels good, it is good for us. Simple!

We can skip bothering about pH values.


Thank you...

Did man think about this when nature created it and we did not have knowledge about all that ?

Is it natural ? Yes. 

Does it have life ? Yes

When you make a milk from it, you are going to throw away the pulp. So the fibre is lost. Fibre is needed to digest every food in its natural state. 

Everything in moderation is the key.  However there is no harm in making the milk but only during transition from non vegan milk to becoming a vegan. Later on it’s best to switch to using the grated coconut directly .

Did the first man have knowledge about minerals, vitamins, calcium, alkaline and acidic? It’s all the hype of today. Just live a simple life with simple thinking and moderation is the key. Know what’s the right thing to do and if we have to deviate, just come back to natural eventually. Have a plan. Body can work on the foods made for us only in its untampered state.

This is how I would make my thinking and life simple. Just go back to the times when creation happened and think along those lines.

Ideally we have to eat foods with life .. so how do we get life into the nuts and seeds ? By soaking it and preparing it for germination

Everything in moderation is the key. When nature has prepared it for growing more plants and man to eat the fruits, we must not eat the seeds or nuts.

Fresh coconut water is supposed to be alkaline. Coconut milk on the other hand can be acidic or alkaline depending on how it’s made.

Fresh coconut milk made from raw coconut is alkaline-forming, while made from dried coconut or powder is acid-forming.

Advisable to check the pH of canned and packaged Coconut Milks, but best is to move to fresh churning in your mixer before making your favourite Thai/ South Indian dish.

I replenish or order a raw coconut every time it is over, to avoid using pouches and cans.
