I picked up one of those coffemate sugar free creamers they other day. I looked at the carb count, only 1g, cool I thought. Thats better than my cream and splenda sweetened flavouring. O sugars too!!! So I didnt read any further.
As you can see from the cut and paste I did from the coffee-mate website, it does indeed have sugar in it. But the word "sugar" isnt used. Corn syrup, is sugar in my books, as is maltodextrin!!!! So how can something that is sugar free, have 0 sugars in its labelling, but corn syrup, be the second ingredient listed, be sugar free? (**adds a trivial amount of sugar)?!?!?!!!!! But again, its the second ingredient listed!!
Id much rather take the extra carbs in my half and half and flavouring, than risk this stuff sending me on a sugar binge!
I just dont understand how they can get away with it. It annoys me to say the very least!
