What are the benefits of eating coconut yoghurt?

Coconut yoghurt is made by adding live bacteria cultures to coconut milk to ferment some of its carbohydrates, producing acid which is responsible for the yoghurt’s texture and tang.⁣


There are several health benefits to eating coconut yoghurt which are as follows:⁣
  1. Probiotics
    Great for balancing microflora in the gut, controlling bad bacteria, and reducing illnesses such as IBS, gas, diarrhoea, and some yeast infections.
  2. Saturated Fats
    One average serving contains 4.5g of the only saturated fats that are essential for health.
  3. Fiber
    One 170g serving of unsweetened coconut yoghurt provides about 6g of fibre.
  4. Sodium and Sugar
    Unsweetened coconut yoghurt contains no sugar and very little sodium.
  5. Calcium and Magnesium
    An average serving contains 25% to 30% of the daily allowance of calcium and magnesium. Calcium is essential to bone health while magnesium is essential for muscle health.
  6. Vitamins
    170g of coconut yoghurt provides 25%-30% of the daily allowance of vitamin B12 which is essential for red blood cell production. It also provides 25%-30% of vitamin D daily needs.
  7. Antioxidants
    Coconut yoghurt is a great source of antioxidants.
  8. Plant-based Food
    If you’re vegan, paleo, lactose intolerant or follow a low FODMAP diet, then coconut yoghurt can be a great alternative to dairy options.

Is your yoghurt gluten free?

Our yoghurt is gluten free and made in a gluten free enviroment.

Is your yoghurt FODMAP friendly?

Yes, our yoghurt is FODMAP friendly. We use maple syrup for our culture to eat during the fermentation process, that is converted into lactic acid which gives yoghurt that distinctive “tangy” taste.

Is it vegan friendly?

Our yoghurt is 100% vegan friendly. All of our ingredients are plant-based, including the live cultures that are specifically derived and grown on non-dairy culture base.

Is it diabetic friendly?

All of the sugars in our yoghurt are naturally derived, with no added refined sugars.⁣


We recommend that diabetics, both Type 1 & 2, eat our yoghurt in moderation. We suggest when introducing any new foods into a diabetic, or any other medically controlled, diet that the new food is introduced in small controlled amounts so that any adverse reactions can be monitored and controlled.

Why not make your yoghurt organic?

CoCoMe yoghurt is not organically certified so that we can keep our prices down, allowing everybody the opportunity to enjoy our yoghurt everyday at an affordable price.⁣


We would love to use organic ingredients in the making of our coconut yoghurt, but it would increase our production costs, thus increasing the price beyond what the average family could afford.

Is coconut yoghurt better than cow's milk yoghurt?

Coconut yoghurt is an alternative to cow’s milk yoghurt, yet both have their advantages and disadvantages.⁣


For people that are lactose intolerant, have medical reasons to avoid dairy products or choose to follow a plant-based diet & lifestyle, coconut yoghurt is a great alternative for incorporating live cultures and probiotics into their diet, which are necessary for a healthy gut microbiome.

Is coconut yoghurt safe for children under 5 years old?

CoCoMe coconut yoghurt is safe to give to children under 5 years old as we do not add any refined sugars, additives or preservatives.⁣


Many baby’s gut are not yet mature enough to digest the lactose in dairy based yoghurts. Coconut yoghurt does not contain lactose which makes it easier for their gut digest and provides them with the necessary cultures and probiotics to ensure a healthy gut microbiome, especially during the weaning from breast feeding and introduction of solid foods into their diet.

How long does CoCoMe yoghurt last?

CoCoMe yoghurt lasts for up to 6 weeks.⁣
