In the various groups we run on Facebook, we the most common coffee creamer folks use is Nestle Coffee-Mate. Coffee-Mate is one of the processed foods that contributes to the health and obesity crisis. Coffee-Mate represents the complete opposite of what we are trying to do with our clean-eating challenges, which is to help people develop natural food habits for the rest of their lives so that can enjoy permanent health and weight loss.
Coffee-Mate does not list the product’s ingredients on its website nor is it to be found online.
The Coffee-Mate ingredients are as follows: CORN SYRUP SOLIDS, VEGETABLE OIL (PARTIALLY HYDROGENATED COCONUT OR PALM KERNEL, HYDROGENATED SOYBEAN)**, SUGAR, SODIUM CASEINATE (A MILK DERIVATIVE)***, DIPOTASSIUM PHOSPHATE (MODERATES COFFEE ACIDITY), AND LESS THAN 2% OF COLOR ADDED, MONO- AND DIGLYCERIDES (PREVENTS OIL SEPARATION)**, SODIUM ALUMINOSILICATE, ARTIFICIAL AND NATURAL FLAVORS, SALT, ANNATTO COLOR.
There are many bad things about these ingredients, but a quick litmus test is the word “hydrogenated.” Whenever I see that word in the ingredients, I put it back on the shelf.
