What is the best coffee creamer?
Asked by anonymous on May 11, 2009 in Nutrition



Do you have any suggestions for coffee-mellowing options?  I typically use sugar free liquid creamer.  I don't want to give up coffee but I don't like it black!


Answer

Evaluate coffee creamers on the basis of their sugar, saturated fat and trans fat content.  Coffee whiteners, also called non-dairy creamers, may contain corn syrup and partially-hydrogenated oils (trans fat), whereas light cream, half and half, and whole milk are sources of saturated fat.  The healthiest “creamer” is skim milk or evaporated skim milk.  Your sugar free liquid creamer is an acceptable option, especially if it is trans fat-free.
