Do you love your coffee in the morning? It’s a good thing right? You get that shot of energy and firing all of those neurons. The upside is that it can promote a healthy heart, reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and make you smarter. Yes, I like that last benefit.
So, why are we as the foremost authority, sabotaging this great liquid with artificial creamers?
Let’s examine them.
The main ingredient for non dairy creamer is high-fructose corn syrup with a dash of hydrogenated vegetable oil. The oil part gives it that impression of a cream feel.
Fructose is the sugar side, but it gets sent to your liver after ingesting. When high amounts are consumed, your liver goes into overdrive trying to metabolize it. Fructose is then turned into fat and stored.

Other chemicals are fake salt called “dipotassium phosphate”. Used in fertilizers and cosmetics.
To get the additives to blend there is “mono diglycerides”.
A whitening agent is used called “sodium caseinate”.
Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is used for flavor. This is an excitotoxin which can overexcite the cells in your body.
If you want a real organic creamer try Kelli’s cool recipe for it. It’s delicious. Here is the link.
Last but not least you will find this interesting. There is an urban legend that nondairy creamer is flammable. Here is a You-tube video with that demonstration.
