Have you ever heard that non-dairy coffee creamer is flammable? As it turns out, sodium aluminosilicate, an ingredient added to keep powdered creamer from caking together, can become flammable when dispersed.
If you’re a coffee drinker who likes adding coffee creamers to your morning coffee, thinking they are healthier for you than real cream, think again. Non-dairy creamer can hardly be called “cream” at all; it’s a mixture of chemicals, oils, sugars, and milk products.
Originally, in the 1950s, coffee mate creamers contained only sugar and cream. However, the manufacturers gradually replaced the cream and natural sugars with processed ingredients such as vegetable oils, chemical sweeteners and additional additives.
Today, powdered and liquid coffee creamers do not have any trace of actual food. The complete list of ingredients exactly as it appears on the label of powdered creamers:

Processed Sugar : Processed sugar feeds cancer cells, triggers weight gain, and promotes premature aging.

Sodium Caseinate: ( a milk derivative ). The chemical name for a protein found in milk, sodium caseinate is often added to “non-dairy” creamers to whiten them. It is also used in paints and plastics. It is associated with allergies, neurological conditions, and autoimmune reactions such as juvenile-onset type 1 diabetes.
