Is coconut milk allowed? Can someone check the GF/GC book?

Well, I couldn't find it in the Guide but Fitday tells me regular coconut milk has 445 calories per cup and 48 grams of fat so..... Could you please post the stats for the "light" - I've never seen it around here.

(Whoops! Just found cocnut milk in the Guide on P. 71 under faqts with 4 grams of fat per tablespoon. It isn't light but is marked "limited". How much fat is in the light? )

By the way, I think we should post the number of servings and the nutritional content in our recipes and will post a thread to that effect.

nutritional information for light coconut milk (Thai Kitchen Brand)

For 2 fl oz (60 mL): 48 cals, 4 g fat, 2 g carbs

I know that in the SB Cookbook one of the Phase 1 means is Coconut chicken made using light coconut milk so I assumed it was ok. I figured they wouldn't put something in the Cookbook if it wasn't allowed.


I'll have to run the figures through fitday to get the nutritional info, which I'll have to do later this evening.
