Why cream is better in your coffee


In this day and age we’re all trying to cut down on the calories and the carbs, even when it comes to coffee.

we all love meeting friends for a coffee but unfortunately coffee shops and the like are carb havens, so what can we do?

An Americano or a filter coffee are better choices than a cappuccino or latte because they have less milk – milk contains a significant amount of carbs in the form of lactose – a natural milk sugar.

Just 125ml of milk has the same effect on blood glucose levels as a teaspoon of sugar.

Of course, milk also contains important nutrients such as protein, calcium and vitamins, but if you have Type 2 diabetes and are struggling to control your blood sugar levels, a better option might be a dash of cream.

Whole milk, for instance, contains 4.7g (more than a teaspoon of sugar) per 100ml – and a latte can be made with 300ml of milk, so that would be more than three teaspoons of sugar before you add any table sugar.

Compare this with double cream, where 100ml contains just 1.6g of sugar (and who would put 100ml of double cream in their coffee)? A 30ml serving of cream is just half a gram of sugar  Рor an eighth of a teaspoon.

Obviously avoid adding sugar or syrups, and keep some low carb snacks nearby.
