Here's What Happens When You Drink Coffee Creamer Every Day
By ERICA ANDREWS
Coffee creamer is the essential ingredient that improves your bitter cup of morning coffee significantly and now comes in several flavors including creme brûlée, pumpkin spice and salted caramel among others. But if you're consuming coffee creamer every day, unfortunately, there are negative side effects to this.
While most “creamers” contain no actual cream, the products are full of sugar, oil and thickeners and the oil is often partially hydrogenated, making it a very unhealthy trans fat for daily consumption. Eating a lot of trans fat raises your chances of having bad cholesterol that can raise your risk of developing heart disease or strokes, which makes these creamers a bad idea.
Some rather delicious creamers make you put on some extra pounds as one serving of creamer is 1 tablespoon, and on average we pour more than four times that amount. You think you just had a 35 calories drink when it was actually a whopping 140 calories — a tiny oversight that could lead you to gain 15 pounds a year!
