What's Really in Your Non-Dairy Creamer?
Non-dairy creamer can scarcely be called "cream" at all. It's really more a combination of chemicals, oils, sugars, and milk products. Here are some of the more common ingredients:
Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil- Part of the problem with partially hydrogenated soybean oil is the trans fat it contains. These synthetic trans fats are known to promote inflammation. There are also the significant health hazards of soy itself, with the majority of soybeans genetically engineered and contaminated with highly toxic herbicides like Roundup (glyphosate).
High-Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)- It's often claimed that HFCS leads to mitochondrial malfunction, obesity, and obesity-related diseases.
Dipotassium Phosphate- This inorganic salt is used as a stabilizer and anti-coagulant in non-dairy creamer. It's also used in fertilizers and cosmetics, and is said to cause vomiting and diarrhea if consumed "in quantities."1
Mono- and Diglycerides-These additives are used to blend together ingredients that normally wouldn't blend well (such as oil and water). They may be synthetically produced or derived from animal or vegetable sources, including partially hydrogenated oils.
Natural Flavors- This doesn't sound bad, until you realize that additives like monosodium glutamate (MSG) and related forms of concentrated free form glutamate can be labeled as natural. MSG is an excitotoxin, which means it overexcites your cells to the point of damage or death.
It causes brain dysfunction and damage to varying degrees, and potentially even triggering or worsening learning disabilities, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, Lou Gehrig's disease, and more. Non-dairy creamer may also contain the vanilla-smelling anal secretions from beavers, called castoreum.
Sodium Caseinate- This ingredient is extracted from milk protein and used as a thickener and whitening agent. Sodium caseinate is typically treated with the chemical solium hydroxide, a chemical alkali. The problem with chemical alkalies is that they act like "anti-nutrients" – damaging or suppressing nutrient absorption. Casein is also the primary protein found in cow's milk associated with allergies, neurological conditions, and autoimmune reactions such as juvenile-onset type 1 diabetes.
Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate (SSL)-This additive is used to strengthen bread dough as well as a cleanser, foaming agent, and emulsifier in cosmetic products. SSL is also used to replace fat and sugar, as it has a mildly sweet taste and reduces the amount of oil needed in products.
