Cream substitute, flavored, liquid

Fun Facts

  1. Used as a substitute for milk or cream, nondairy creamer lends a rich texture and flavor to a cup of coffee or tea. For people who can’t or don’t want to eat dairy foods, nondairy creamer offers an alternative, but it also comes with some drawbacks, most notably the inclusion of partially hydrogenated oils in many of the brands and flavors.
  2. The number of calories and amount of fat that nondairy creamer contains depends on flavor and type, which includes liquid and powder. A tablespoon of liquid plain nondairy creamer contains between 15 and 20 calories and contains about 1 gram of fat. A tablespoon of flavored liquid nondairy creamer can range between 20 and 35 calories and can contain as much as 3 grams of fat.
  3. Plain nondairy creamer in liquid or powder form contains less than 1 gram of sugar per serving. Flavored varieties, however, can be significantly higher in sugar content.
  4. Nondairy creamer doesn’t supply essential vitamins and minerals. A serving of either liquid or powdered nondairy creamer doesn’t supply any calcium, iron, vitamin C or vitamin A.
