Our expert says:
According to the SA Food Tables, non-dairy coffee creamers are high in energy (2287 kJ/100g), total fat (35.5g/100g) and saturated fat (32.5g/100g). If you compare these values with low-fat milk powder per 100g(energy 1630 kJ; total fat 6g; saturated fat 3.8g),then it is indeed wise to avoid using these coffee creamers! In addition, the low-fat milk powder contains 1191 mg of calcium per 100g, while the creamers only contain 22 mg of calcium/100g. The high fat and saturated fat and low calcium contents of these coffee creamers is why the labels have to display the wording "Not for baby feeding".
