Our expert says:
According to the SA Food Tables, non-dairy coffee creamers contain the following per 100g: 2287 kJ, 35.5g of total fat of which 32.5 g is saturated fat, but no cholesterol. 2% milk contains the following per 100 g or 100 ml: 208 kJ, 1.9g of total fat of which 1.2 is saturated fat and 8 mg of cholesterol. It is thus not specifically the cholesterol content of the non-dairy creamers that is regarded as negative (it is usually 0 mg), but the fact that the total fat content and the saturated fat contents are so high. In general, it is healthier to use low-fat milk rather than coffee creamers in coffee.
