When it comes to drinking coffee nowadays, we are faced with a plethora of options. Stores and coffee shops are loaded with different coffee flavors, creams, sugars, syrups, and non-dairy creamers. The options can be overwhelming, especially when trying to make healthy choices.
A new, healthier creamer option is now available - Leaner Creamer, a vanilla flavored, powder-based coffee creamer. The main ingredient in Leaner Creamer is what makes this creamer unique: coconut oil. Coconut oil is a medium chain triglyceride, which is an easily digestible type of fat. Its unique structure does not require bile salts or energy for digestion making it very easily absorbed. As a result, it provides our body with energy very quickly, similarly to sugar. The difference is, it won’t cause a release of insulin, the hormone that promotes fat storage and is initiated by eating carbohydrates. Because of this, incorporating a coconut oil based-creamer into your morning cup of coffee will support the energy boost without a dramatic crash later on.
The fat in coconut oil also promotes satiety, keeping morning hunger at bay and reducing the urge to snack, which can lead to weight loss. Choosing Leaner Creamer will provide your body with energy and healthy fats as opposed to undesirable ingredients in traditional creamers and non-dairy creamers.
While Leaner Creamer does contain a milk derivative (sodium caseinate), it is still suitable for those who are lactose intolerant and is a healthier alternative to typical non-dairy based creamers. The main ingredients in non-dairy based creamers are corn syrup and hydrogenated oils, both which negatively impact health. Hydrogenated oils are chemically modified fats, which raise “bad” and lower “good” cholesterol levels. Corn syrup is essentially pure, concentrated sugar, and most Americans consume way too much sugar, so it’s beneficial to reduce intake wherever possible. A completely dairy free Leaner Creamer formula is due to hit the market in Spring 2016.
Leaner Creamer is a powder based formula with a shelf life of 12 months, so there is a much lower likelihood of waste compared to perishable dairy based creamers, which will save money in the long run.
If you’re looking for a new, healthier, dairy free coffee creamer give Leaner Creamer a try.
