Creamer vs Creamer vs Creamer

Posted on

Several years ago, lured by labels with lower levels of saturated fat and cholesterol, I ditched traditional Half & Half for soy creamer in my 2-cups-a-day hazelnut coffee habit.

It might not have been the right decision.

Or it might have been the right decision – but only for one particular soy creamer brand.

In reading the many articles about how even though the FDA has banned trans fats in the American food supply, they are lurking in many foods.  In fact, coffee creamers are one key culprit: non-dairy creamers (and other foods) can be labeled as containing 0g trans fat PER SERVING when in fact if you eat more than 1 serving (very likely) you will be consuming real amounts of trans fats.
