Coffee creamers contain a variety of ingredients including a form of hydrogenated vegetable oil, sugar, sodium and food coloring. There will be slight differences in ingredients depending on the brand.
Most coffee creamers contain hydrogenated oil. This oil is known for having trans fat. High fructose corn syrups may also be included in the ingredients. The creamer may also contain sodium casienate, diglycerides, dipotassium phosphate and natural flavors. Sodium casienate is a protein extract found in milk. This means not all creamer is safe for the lactose intolerant. Dipotassium phosphate is used to increase the shelf life of the coffee creamers. The diglycerides are used to help the oil and water or other ingredients mix together.
