Dr Oz: What’s In Non-Dairy Creamer?
Have you ever wondered what non-dairy coffee creamer is usually made of if it doesn’t contain any cream? The reality is that there are a lot more chemicals in non-dairy creamer than you’d likely prefer. It turns out, some of those chemicals are even super flammable! Dan Souza from “Cook’s Science” explained that the primary component of the creamers is water. They also use corn syrup, oil, and other additives. To make the powdered forms, those wet ingredients are turned into a powder.
Non-dairy creamer has the same number of calories but twice as much fat. So what should you reach for when adding flavor to your coffee?
Dr Oz: Healthier Coffee Add-Ins
Dan then showed Dr Oz some of his favorite coffee add-ins to help viewers avoid non-dairy creamers. If you’re looking for sweetness, try adding cinnamon and vanilla extract.
If you prefer cream in your coffee, try making your coffee with mineral water. It can give you a creamier mouth feel but it’s incredibly subtle. For a bigger difference, try adding canned coconut milk.
Finally, to tackle the bitterness, try the “cowboy technique.” You can add egg shells to coffee grounds before brewing.
