In regard to your nutritionist recommending coconut milk as a good source of Vitamin D and B12, you may want to check the validity of that information as most of the nutritional information I sourced on coconut milk lists it as having zero Vitamin D and B12. This is separate from the fact that it contains a very high level of saturated fat. Hope you can find an acceptable alternative.
Hi Donna not sure why you cant find this information its all over the Internet, perhaps its different down under lol. I shant be replacing it, as since i have been drinking it, my fatigue levels have dropped a lot and I feel so much better this is without meds. Otherwise the rest of my diet is OMS. I cannot stomach Soya its so bad for people with MS, and rice milk has no nutrional value either. I do drink tons of Almond milk too which is also good for us.
This information is direct from Google, i found tons of pages with it. Also actually as to sat fats, its weird as people who live on this stuff, rarely get high cholesterol or have heart issues and are very healthy. Coconuts actually have some pretty good stuff for us. I only drink with 8.3per cent anyway so i dont think its going to do much harm. All the other MS books say drink eat soya but thats even worse for us. I think every diet has its issues and limitations.
Coconut milk, high in vitamin B12, is just another one of the cool products that silk has come out with for vegetarians and vegans. Just one cup of coconut milk has only 80 calories but contains 50 per cent of your daily recommended intake of vitamin B12. That's 1.2 micrograms.
