Really love this product!
I'm a big fan. Tasting this against the more widely available -- i.e., mass-market -- brands of coconut milk is a real revelation. Ayam is much thicker and has MUCH more flavor. I recently used it as part of a marinade and sauce for some grilled swordfish (modified from a recipe on Food52), and the final dish was jaw-droppingly good. Additionally, I like the fact that it has nothing in it other than coconut and water.

Ayam Coconut Milk (Coconut Cream) - 9oz - Malaysia

We taste-tested all the coconut milks we could find at the grocery store, and this one is by far the best of the bunch. Not a solid paste, real coconut flavor, and no guar gum or sugar added. The next best thing to shredding and squeezing your own. From the brand that Thai cooks depend on - Ayam.
Quote from random source about the health benefits of whole coconut kernel:

Coconut kernel protein modifies the effect of coconut oil on serum lipids.

Padmakumaran Nair KG, Rajamohan T, Kurup PA. Department of Biochemistry, University of Kerala, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala State, India.

"Feeding coconut kernel along with coconut oil in human volunteers has been found to reduce serum total and LDL cholesterol when compared to feeding coconut oil alone. This effect of the kernel was also observed in rats. Since many plant proteins have been reported to exert a cholesterol lowering effect, a study was carried out on the effect of isolated kernel protein in rats. Feeding kernel protein resulted in lower levels of cholesterol, phospholipids and triglycerides in the serum and most tissues when compared to casein fed animals.

"Rats fed kernel protein had (1) increased hepatic degradation of cholesterol to bile acids, (2) increased hepatic cholesterol biosynthesis, and (3) decreased esterification of free cholesterol. In the intestine, however, cholesterogenesis was decreased. The kernel protein also caused decreased lipogenesis in the liver and intestine. This beneficial effect of the kernel protein is attributed to its very low lysine/arginine ratio 2.13% lysine and 24.5% arginine. "

Not a nut

A fruit or drupe, this nut is not a nut and not nearly as dangerous as one is led to believe.

Contrary to popular belief, these nuts are not deadly.

As the common saying goes “if the fall doesn't hurt you, you'll be better for it. “

Just a few hundred people a year die from coconuts falling on their head worldwide, so one is reasonably safe unless there's a coconut tree nearby. 

Coconut milk and water on the other hand have been touted recently as exponentially unbelievably very fabulous for you. We don't know about that but we do know that the coconut milk that we use is indeed fabulous! Consisting of just two ingredients: coconut kernel extract and water.  That's it.

Filled with lots of B vitamins and other good stuff, coconut milk is a versatile and surprisingly useful ingredient to have in your pantry.

Not only is coconut milk useful for desserts such as coconut cream pie, coconut cupcakes, coconut hot white chocolate, and of course coconut ice cream. 

It’s also a wonderful ingredient in savory dishes as well. Think of a Thai Curry for your shrimp or a coconut rice (use coconut milk to cook the rice) or a wonderful curry garlic pepper milk sauce for your fresh fish!

We opened and tasted a boat load of coconut milk and this is the best we have used!
