Types of Coffee Creamer? Dairy vs. Non-Dairy
One of the first things you can do when you choose a coffee creamer is learn to make the distinction between dairy and non-dairy creamers. See, the term “non-dairy” doesn’t mean that there’s no dairy; in fact, the term non-dairy just means that the product contains 0.5% or less milk by weight.
It’s very important to note that many of the non-dairy touted coffee creamers are not actually dairy-free if you check out the ingredients. On the package, you may see “casein” or “caseinate” listed as one of the ingredients (which is actually the top allergenic protein in milk) and this means that the product isn’t actually entirely dairy-free. This can be a problem for those who are sensitive or allergic to milk. Here’s some more relevant facts about non-dairy creamers.
- Most of the traditional coffee creamers we found actually listed casein as their third ingredient.
- To go truly dairy-free, check the label to ensure that the creamer is not produced in a facility that produces dairy products.
- If there’s no dairy – minus the 0.5% or less – then what are coffee creamers made of? Thickeners, oil, and sugar. Generally, the oil is partially hydrogenated trans fat.
- These creamers come in fat-free and sugar-free varieties too. They’re made from the same mixture of unhealthy oils, thickeners, plus additional chemicals from artificial sweeteners. Even varieties that contain real dairy are spiked with thickeners and stabilizers.
Luckily there are other better types of coffee creamers available and if you stick around for the end, we will show you which ones they are.
Consumers Demanding Plant-Based Coffee Creamers For Good Reasons
Let’s face it. Factory farms suck. No matter your reason. Plant-based coffee creamers are growing in popularity. In part, due to concerns and fears over cow’s milk from industrialized dairy farms, including the use of hormones and antibiotics, mistreatment of the animals, and environmental pollution, we have a ton of plant-based milks available in coffee creamers. However, there are also some drawbacks.
- Shake Well: Plant-based coffee creamers are fortified with calcium, as they have no natural calcium. Make sure to shake any nut-based milk.
- Reality Check: Eating nuts is far better for you – a few nuts can give your body lots of nutrients, proteins, and vitamins, but using nut-based creamers doesn’t offer the same health benefits
- Warning: Nut-based coffee creamers sometimes contain sweeteners, thickeners, and gums to mimic the feeling of actual cream in your mouth. Like anything else, read the label carefully.
Different Types of Plant-Based Milks to Use
The types of plant-based coffee creamers are growing exponentially as more people are cutting cow’s milk out of their lives. So what are the types of plant-based coffee creamers and what do we know about them? Are they non-toxic coffee creamers?
Soy Milk is the only plant-based creamer that has the most protein and potassium of all the plant-based creamers. However, there has been some concern that soy has estrogen-like effects on the body. The American Cancer Society states that it’s the soy supplements that are of concern, not soy milk.
- Pros: Soy Milk is typically fortified with calcium, vitamins A and D and riboflavin and generally contains 7 g or more of protein per serving, making it nutritionally similar to cow’s milk.
- Cons: Unfortunately, as we all know, soy is the #1 most genetically modified crop in the world, so be sure to check your labels to make sure they’re Non-GMO. Additionally, soy is a common food allergy and those with soy sensitivity should steer clear.
Coconut Milk coffee creamers – the ones in the dairy case – are made from coconut meat that’s diluted by water to a drinkable consistency. Canned coconut milk, though, is often used for cooking and is super viscous. Coconut milk-based creamers are lactose-free, vegan, sweet, & creamy. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have calcium unless it’s been added, and doesn’t offer a lot of protein.
- Pros: it is soy, gluten, and almond free which means that people who have multiple food allergies can usually tolerate this substitute. Read the label to learn where it’s been manufactured and what contaminants it may have been exposed t0. Coconut milk has less than half the sugars of cow’s milk.
- Cons: raw coconut milk is high in (good) fat and calories, so it’s important to be mindful of your consumption, especially if you’re on a restricted-calorie diet. Some types of coconut milk have a very nutty taste, which may not be delicious for people looking for a neutral-flavored dairy milk alternative.
Almond Milk is a dairy substitute often used as a plant-based alternative to cow’s milk and superficially, it sounds great: it’s low-calorie and almonds are pretty much a superfood… right? Well, yes and no. Almond milk actually has very few almonds in it – almonds are heavily diluted with water, which means that the protein, good fat, fiber, and antioxidants tend to get washed out. Many types of almond-based coffee creamers contain thickeners and stabilizers – including carrageenan, which isn’t good for the digestive system.
- Pros: Almond milk contains lots of vitamin E and about one-third of the calories as normal 2% cow’s milk. Almond milk has a mild flavor and is often the first choice for people just starting their dalliance into plant-based milks.
- Cons: Almond Milk lacks protein and lacks the vitamins, fatty acids, and minerals in cow’s milk, so it’s important to look for fortified almond milk.
Pea Milk is a rapidly growing market staple and is made from yellow peas and similar to soy milk, has a lot of protein
- Pros: Pea milk is high in protein, low in carbs, it’s also naturally gluten and soy free. Do make sure to check your labels for certified allergy-free indicators.
- Cons: Yellow peas are a crop that is desiccated with glyphosate at the end of the harvest to speed up the drying process. We have also found contamination in organic pea protein so unfortunately cannot recommend a brand unless they have a certification with the Detox Project as glyphosate residue-free. In addition, pea milk alone isn’t a good source of calcium, so it is typically calcium-fortified. Some brands do add additives including gums and gels d to improve texture. As peas contain nearly no fat, vegetable oils are often added to make the pea milk feel creamier.
Oat Milk is one of the newest type of plant-based milks available and it’s currently all the rage. Oat milk is produced by blending oats and water, allowing it to sit, then siphoning off the liquid, thus creating oat milk. As this is a new type of milk, the jury is still out regarding its health benefits or drawbacks. Make sure to read your labels, like almond milk, oat milk often contains added sugar, ensuring that the oat milk creamer says “unsweetened” or on the front, and verify that it contains 0g of sugar. Watch out: “barista blend,” is often code for added sugar.
- Pros: Oat milk is creamer than nut milks and contains double the amount of fiber in other dairy-free milks. Oat milk offers 4 grams of protein per one cup serving and is lower in fat and calories than leading nut milks. Oat milk is also a great alternative for people with nut allergies
- Cons: Oats are commonly desiccated with glyphosate at the end of harvest unless organic so oat milk could have more glyphosate pesticide residue than other options. Oat milk also contains carb and calorie to fat ratio which isn’t a good fit if you are limiting your carb intake.
Macadamia Nut Milk
Macadamia Nut Milk is a very popular option as a creamer for coffee that’s low in protein (unless it’s been fortified with pea protein).
- Pros: Macadamia nut milk is generally low in calories and carbs but check out the label for added flavors and sweeteners.
- Cons: Macadamia nut milk is often fortified with additional protein and vitamins; some brands use other additives such as gums and gels to improve texture and mouthfeel of the creamer.
Hazelnut Milk is a type of dairy-free milk that’s nearly twice the protein of standard milk. Not as popular as soy or almond milk, hazelnut milk is still a decent coffee creamer product.
- Pros: Hazelnut milk is an excellent source of B vitamins, vitamin E, and omega-3 fatty acids.
- Cons: Hazelnut milk is not only higher in fat and calories than other dairy-free alternatives, but the nuts themselves are a common allergen. Hazelnut milk has a stronger, nuttier flavor which may or may not be a bad thing depending upon personal preference.
Cashew Milk is considered great for people who don’t care for almonds and/or are concerned with calories. Cashew milk does not have any cholesterol or saturated fats and, with fortification, can offer more calcium than cow’s milk.
- Pros: Cashew Milk is low in fat, carbs, and calories.
- Cons: It also lacks protein; cashew milk doesn’t have the density of vitamins, minerals and fatty acids as cow’s milk, so it’s important to buy for fortified cashew milk.
Rice Milk is either loved or hated. While calories from rice milk coffee creamers come from carbohydrates (making it a good option use before exercising), rice milk isn’t a great alternative to other types of plant-based coffee creamers as it’s thin and watery. However, rice milk is probably the most hypoallergenic of all the plant-based creamers.
- Pros: rice milk is a great alternative for individuals who have soy, gluten and/or nut allergies.
- Cons: Rice milk is low in protein and higher in calories and carbs. It milk may not work for people who stick to a low-carb/low calorie diet.
Flax Milk milk is another one that’s pretty new to the dairy case, made of cold-pressed flax oil and water. Additionally, flax is one of the richest sources of omega-3 fatty acids and has a sweet, nutty, and milky flavor that goes well with coffee.
- Pros: Flax Milk is high in fiber and full of alpha-linoleic acids – which is used to prevent and treat cardiovascular diseases. Flax used to prevent heart attacks, lower high blood pressure, lower cholesterol and reverse hardening of the blood vessels due to atherosclerosis. When fortified, this type of non-dairy alternative has as much calcium as regular milk, great for people who need healthy, adequate levels of calcium.
- Cons: flax milk is low in protein which may or may not be an issue. Flavored flax coffee creamers are often heavily sweetened, so read the label for sugar content.
Hemp Milk is one of few plant-based complete proteins that actually contains all the essential amino acids, and is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and is considered to be a great alternative for people who are allergic to gluten, soy, and lactose. While it can’t get you high, hemp milk is composed of hemp seeds from the cannabis sativa plant.
- Pros: Provides more iron and omega-3 fatty acids than cow’s milk. Omega-3 fatty acids can promote heart and brain health. Hemp protein is easier to digest than its soy counterpart because it doesn’t contain complex sugars.
- Cons: Certain varieties of hemp milk have a strongish flavor which may take time to get used to.
Peanut Milk is the new kid on the plant-based milk market block and while dangerous for those who have peanut allergies, this milk is creamy in texture and tastes pretty neutral
- Pros: Peanut Milk is an excellent source of protein and it has a pleasant, neutral taste.
- Cons: Peanuts are one of the most common allergens and this wouldn’t be the best choice for an office environment if someone among the staff has an allergy to them.
Walnut Milk is not often seen on its own, but it may be combined with other types of plant-based milks in your coffee creamer.
- Pros: walnut milk is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids as well as minerals, including as copper, manganese, phosphorus, molybdenum, and magnesium
- Cons: In comparison to the other dairy milk alternatives, walnut milk has the highest calorie and fat – excepting from raw coconut milk. If you’re on a diet, you may want to be mindful of using too much walnut milk.
What’s The Environmental Impact of Plant-Based Milks?
Joseph Poore, a researcher at the University of Oxford, recently released a study that compared greenhouse gases from over 10,000 farms around the world that produce cow, almond, coconut, and soymilks. In this particular study, he found that dairy milk uses 9 times more land to make a liter of dairy milk than a liter of rice, soy, oat, or almond milk.
However, plant-based milks can also have a consequential environmental impact.
Another concern is the environmental impacts of farming the essential ingredients for these plant-based milk alternatives. Consumer spending for these alternative milks has risen while the consumption of cow’s milk has dropped. We learned that it takes 3.2 gallons of water to produce just one almond (i.e. 10 almonds = 32 gallons), leading many people to call almond milk an unsustainable choice to use.
Almonds require irrigation, exerting tremendous pressure on water resources. Rice emits the most greenhouse gases from the methane that bacteria create in flooded rice paddies. Soy and oat milks require more land, perhaps requiring deforestation depending on where the land is. Dietary changes (for instance, switching from dairy to plant-based diets) and the long-term environmental costs for consumer choices should be considered. This category does not always have easy solutions.
Problematic Ingredients In Coffee Creamers
Artificial or “Natural” Flavors
By now, we all know that artificial flavors aren’t a great thing to find on your food’s label – it’s too ambiguous a term and doesn’t tell you anything about what’s used to make that flavor. Surely, “natural” flavors are better…right?
Sorry to be a downer, but this is important.
Did you know that artificial flavors and “natural” flavors are chemically the exact same thing? Let me say it again: natural flavors and artificial flavors are the exact same molecule, each formed in a laboratory.
Flavors are complex mixtures that can involve more than 100 chemicals, some of which have functions other than providing flavor, including emulsifiers, solvents, preservatives, and flavor modifiers which can make up up to 90 percent of the mixture.
The primary difference between artificial and natural flavors is where the flavor molecules came from: natural flavors (per the FDA) must be plant or animal material derived, while artificial flavors are created by using inedible elements (like petroleum).
The actual chemicals in these two kinds of flavors may be exactly the same: the chemical structures of the individual molecules are often indistinguishable.
Additionally, be aware that the FDA doesn’t require food labels to state what is in their “natural flavor” unless the ingredients include a common allergen (milk, egg, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, wheat, peanuts, or soy), in which case you’ll see a disclaimer on the label. However, if you’re allergic to a less common allergen, such as sesame, apple, or banana, it’s on you to contact the manufacturer directly to see if that ingredient is part of a product’s flavor blend.
So that delicious smell of pumpkin spice wafting up your nostrils, making you all nostalgic is made in a lab. Total bummer.
So, we already broke it to you that the cream in many creamers isn’t actually cream: rather it’s a blend of thickening agents and emulsifiers that give the creamer that soft creamy feel
The most common types that we saw in our investigation include:
- Guar Gum
- Cellulose gel and cellulose gum are fillers derived from wood pulp or cotton.
- Polysorbate 60 is a sugar alcohol-derived emulsifier that’s used to keep water and oil from separating in conventional cosmetics.
This leads us to our point: Do you really want to be putting that stuff in your body?
Partially Hydrogenated Oils
Did you know what partially hydrogenated oils is code for? TRANS FAT.
So, what’s it doing in my coffee? Turns out that partially hydrogenated oils are frequently used by food manufacturers to improve the texture, increase shelf life, and add flavor stability to foods, per the FDA.
According to the CDC, using trans fats may increase the amount of the bad cholesterol (LDL – pneumonic is “lousy density lipoproteins”), increase the risk for heart attack, coronary artery disease, stroke, and subsequent death.
That’s a little heavy to stomach in the morning, right?
With the increase in attention to organic plant-based preservatives, it’s a wonder we use artificial preservatives at all.
Organic preservatives are made of a naturally-occurring substance called flavonoids. Flavonoids are naturally-occurring chemicals in plants that work to defend plants against pathogens, herbivores, pests, and environmental stress. The flavonoids that were created by NTU scientists have strong anti-microbial and anti-oxidant properties; two key traits of preservatives that inhibit bacterial growth and keep food fresher for longer.
Food manufacturers know that you’re probably not going to be drinking coffee creamer by the cup, so rather than being fresh, they add mold inhibitors like sodium stearoyl lactylate and dipotassium phosphate.
While most of the preservatives aren’t (yet) linked to health hazards or conditions, you have other delicious options.
Sugars: Real and Fake
Let’s face it: most of us are on some sort of calorie-restrictive (or carb, or meat, or whatever) diet which makes us cut all the unnecessary sugar out of our diet in all the ways we can. Not surprisingly, a lot of those delicious coffee treats are full of fat and sugar and/or artificial sugars. Which one is better? Turns out, available data is pretty inconsistent.
To this day, there remains no scientific consensus on whether products with low-calorie sweeteners help with long-term weight loss, and there are ongoing studies and debates over the safety of sweeteners and if they cause have other undesirable health effects.
We also know that overeating sugar can be harmful to your health: soaring rates of obesity and type II diabetes (type I diabetes is an autoimmune condition present at birth) are very serious health concerns. While scientists and experts may not be able to agree on the amount of sugar that’s “too” much.
So which is the better type of sugar: artificial or natural? The answer is plain: don’t use too much of either. And your morning coffee is one easy place that you can absolutely cut them down/out.
Mamavation’s Investigation on Non-Toxic Coffee Creamers
In this investigation, we looked at over 200 different coffee creamers and evaluated them based on the following factors to determine the best type of non-toxic coffee creamers available. We looked into which types of creamers were organic, which used non-GMO ingredients, the amount of sugar and fats in each, as well as which type of ingredients contained the worst types of food additives.

The So Delicious brand you linked list Carrageenan on their label. I don’t understand why they are included in this blog post as carrageenan is known to be highly inflammatory and can lead to colon cancer. Toxic!!
Your article is wonderful, but you said that fortified vitamins are ok. Not true. Please read Root Cause Protocol to see why fortified vitamins are not good for us. They are synthetic, as opposed to vitamins found in food, which are natural.
Great article! But you left out the importance of vitamins, real vitamins. Please research fortified vitamins and you will see that they are not great for our body. Go to Weston A. Price website to see what foods and ingredients are healthy and good for you. Also, The Root Cause Protocol explains why fortified vitamins are not good for us.
I switched to So Delicious brand creamers years ago. I can’t even stomach the others anymore. Yuck.
I love coffee.
you know coffee Aceh?
try and you like it.
What a comprehensive investigation on coffee creamers. Nice work! When I used to use creamers, it was solely for added creaminess and flavor, not for added nutritional value. Now, due to food sensitivities, I add coconut oil and/or grass fed butter to just one cup to achieve the same effect. It keeps the calories in check and is very satisfying. And just 1 ingredient!
Great post for the coffee lovers. Thanks for sharing. It’s good to know more coffee creamers.
Have you heard of Darigold, Inc Creamer in Seattle, WA? since 1918
Ingredients: milk and cream, liquid sugar (sugar, water) Natural & Artificial flavor
On the bottle it says: Our creamer is made with just 4 simple ingredients, such as
rbST-free half and half, and without the non-dairy creamer stuff. But became informed of natural and artificial flavors from your article……hmmmmm
I bought Darigold made with real cream French Vanilla natural & artificial flavor creamer because it only had 4 ingredients as opposed to the others.
Your thoughts please and Thank YOU for all your work.
I would love to know the answer too! I live in Seattle and buy this creamer too! Thanks.
Me too. I only buy the Darigold creamers too. In Seattle also.
