Did you hear that non-dairy coffee creamer is flammable? It turns out that sodium aluminosilicate, which is an ingredient found in creamers are added to keep powdered form from caking together can become flammable when dispersed.
If you’re a coffee drinker or even addict, who prefers adding coffee creamers to your favorite morning coffee, thinking they are healthier for you than real cream, please, think again. These kind of creamers can hardly be called “cream” at all because it’s a mixture of chemicals, sugars, oils, and milk products.
In the 1950s, original coffee creamers contained only two ingredients – sugar and cream. However, the manufacturers gradually replaced the cream and natural sugars with processed ingredients such as vegetable oils, chemical sweeteners and additional additives for some purpose.
Sadly today, powdered and liquid coffee creamers do not have any trace of actual food anymore. The complete list of ingredients exactly as it appears on the label of powdered creamers are below:
INGREDIENTS: CORN SYRUP SOULIDS, PARTIALLY HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OIL. (MAY CONTAIN ONE OR MORE OF THE FOUOWING OILS: SOYBEAN, CANOLA, SUNFLOWER, CORN, OR COTTONSEED). SODIUM CASEINATE (A MILK DERIVATIVE), DIPOTASSIUM PHOSPHATE CONTAINS 2% OR LESS OF MONO- AND DIGLYCERIDES SODIUM SILICIALUMINATE, SOY LECHITHIN ARTIFICAL FLAVOR, ARTIFICAL COLOR.
Processed sugar feeds cancer cells, plus it promotes premature aging and most of all triggers weight gain. Since processed sugar doesn’t offer any health benefits at all, your body tends to consume magnesium, potassium, sodium and calcium from healthy cells from different parts of the body in an effort to counteract the effects of processed sugar.
Vegetable Oil (Partially Hydrogenated Coconut Or Palm Kernel, Hydrogenated Soybean–Trans–Fatty Acids)
Trans fats cause diseases like diabetes, heart conditions, and many other chronic degenerative illness. After ingesting these trans–fatty acids, they are incorporated into cells and the cells are hydrogenated. Hydrogenation of cells leads to increased rates of heart attack, diabetes and obesity, weakened immune system, sexual dysfunction, atherosclerosis, and cancer.
Corn Syrup Solids
Corn syrup is a type of sugar that is made from cornstarch, mostly dextrose. Corn syrup solids are produced when corn starch is bathed in hydrochloric acid which is an industrial chemical solution with highly corrosive properties that is also used in the manufacturing of plastics. To add, the corn itself is most likely derived from GMO varieties, which makes it even more toxic and dangerous.
