Anyone who’s ever tasted a coconut will remark on its unique creamy, buttery flavor. This is rather unique considering that coconut doesn’t actually contain any dairy. But what it does contain is a compound known as gamma-nonalactone, more commonly referred to as coconut lactone. Now as you might suspect, lactone is a compound contained in dairy products and is responsible for its characteristic “dairyness”. So, the compound found in coconuts is merely a variant of that found in milk. In addition to its creamy flavor, different types of coconuts are also noted for their subtle tropical notes of honey and apricot. Try our Sweet Coconut Natural Flavor today!
