3. Coffee Creamer
Liquid non-dairy creamers have the color and consistency of cream but are entirely made of oil. That velvety mouthfeel is achieved with thickening agents and emulsifiers such as carrageenan, an ingredient that tends to cause inflammation and digestive issues.
Other texturizers include cellulose gel and cellulose gum, tasty fillers derived from wood pulp or cotton. Powdered creamers are so removed from actual cream that they are flammable, and that’s on top of tasting disgusting.
