For as long as I have known her, Angela has constantly reminded me that 'Powdered coffee 'creamer' isn't food, it's processed chemicals'. Recently, she sent me the following article. I googled for the source and discovered that it was first published in Natural News.

Every day, millions of Americans add powdered coffee "creamer" products to their morning cups of coffee because they falsely believe that these substances are somehow healthier than real cream. But little do they know that most coffee creamer products contain no actual cream, or food for that matter, as they are really nothing more than a crafty blend of toxic chemicals.

When powdered coffee creamers first came onto the scene back in the 1950s, they actually contained real dehydrated cream and sugar, which made them a convenient, non-perishable source of cream for coffee. Over time, however, manufacturers began to phase out the cream, and replace it with things like processed vegetables oils, stabilizers, chemical sweeteners, and other additives that were less expensive and that more easily dissolved in coffee.

Today, the average canister of so-called "creamer" substitute contains not a trace of actual food, at least not food in the technical sense of the word. Take the Coffee-Mate brand of coffee creamer, for instance. The original powder flavor contains corn syrup solids, hydrogenated vegetable oils, and a handful of stabilizing, emulsifying, and flavoring chemicals (SOURCE: HERE).

Not only is there no "cream" of any kind in Coffee-Mate's Original Powder, but there are also no natural food ingredients whatsoever. This is why some countries actually require that powdered coffee additives be called "whiteners" rather than "creamers," since they do not actually contain any real cream.

    masterwordsmith Good morning KS Cheah and cin2tan

    I will finish my current supply of 3-in-1 and then go for the instant brew. Much as I feel the three-in-ones taste better, at much age, I cannot take any chances. :-(

    Take care and enjoy your coffee always!

    Have a great day!

    Cheers
