Why does the Starbucks Coconutmilk contain added sugar?
When looking for the right coconutmilk, our priority was to identify a single origin coconutmilk that is creamy, delicious and pairs perfectly with our espresso and Frappuccino® blended beverages.
Our recipe does contain added sugar, similar to the amount of naturally occurring sugar in dairy milk. The sugar gives a satisfying body, texture and consistency leading to a quality finished product that delivers a similar experience to dairy milk.
We received positive feedback on the flavor and texture of the coconutmilk when testing it over the last year.
