How Much Crap Can There Be in a Heart Smart Creamer?

Heart Smart Creamer Ingredients

This non-dairy creamer claims to be “Heart Smart”. Unfortunately, its ingredient list tells another story:

Corn syrup solids, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, sodium caseinate (milk derived), dipotassium phosphate, mono and diglycerides, sodium silicoaluminate, sodium triployphosphate, diacetyl tartaric acid esters of mono and diglycerides, artificial flavor, beta carotene, riboflavin and titanium oxide.

All this in just 10 calories.

What we “love” most about this product is the use of partially hydrogenated oils (trans fats) while at the same time claiming 0 trans fats on the front of the pack.

Unless you are severely lactose intolerant, is there any reason in the world to add this crap to your coffee or tea instead of milk?

  • My 2¢

    If you’re lactose intolerant, there are other “healthier” options like almond, rice, soy, coconut, hazelnut, and other milks that can cream your coffee…just saying.

    almond milk. iwouldnt use that crap

    • neecie

      I love almond milk for my smoothie – but it’s not too good in coffee. I use 1/2&1/2 cuz not lactose intol.

  • Michael Heffez

    Yes there certainly is a reason – it is for people who wish to commit suicide.

    Monsanto is killing is with their nasty gmo why aren’t they being eliminated why are they depopulating so soon
    I have evidence but nothing is being done people are too skeptic and afraid or lazy and content with their tv rigged sports and iPhones. Americans

  • Aria Gonzalez

    My dad uses crap like that even though my sister and I both told him it’s crap and dairy is much better. He’s not lactose intolerant. I think you just can’t help some people.

    How can they get away with blatantly lying about the “zero trans-fat”? Isn’t it illegal, and shouldn’t they be reported to the FDA or whoever is in charge?

    • JohnL

      If it is under half a gram, they can claim “zero”.

      • MBev

        Ah that’s true. It’s the 2nd ingredient on the list though so unlikely to be an insignificant amount, but then again how much can the whole sachet weigh? Prob. be fairer if they let the trans-fat go unreported if it was a percentage of total weight rather than an absolute 0.5gms.

    • Danielle

      There’s probably less than a gram of trans fats in a serving which enables them to list the trans fat content as 0.

  • gaias

    Ick..that is all.

  • Shaun

    If the Trans Fat content is less than .5% companies aren’t required to say it has any at all… I think it’s shady.

    Gross! I always make my own “clean cream”
