Coffeemate and carbs

Hi, guys, does coffeemate contain alot of carbs? I don't really inderstand the info on the labels. I DO drink alot of coffee and rough estimate of Coffeemate intake is 15-20 small spoons and I use sucralose for sweetener. Info on tub is 3.8g per serving of cm...now how do I calculate that in total for a day. And does sucralose contain any sugar. I am willing to ditch the cm if I can find creamy alternative :/ thanks alot.

Hi Daffodil, coffeemate does have a lot of carbs and it sounds like you are drinking quite a lot of it every day too. I love my coffee and don't like it black, so have been moving over to a splash of skim milk. I think the main thing is getting used to the healthy option bit by bit, after a while you will not notice and I actually find a lot of creamers just too rich now. Good luck!

Coffee mate light has 28cals and 5.5g carbs or semi skimmed milk has 2.5 carbs per 50ml and 25 cals.

One serving of coffee mate is 2 heaped teaspoons.

Sucralose powder contains more carbs than the tablet version.

Hope this helps😃

Have a look at the list of ingredients, they're not something I'd want to drink! Have a look at other options if you don't drink milk, but make sure to check the list of all the ingredients. Perhaps try drinking alternatives to coffee. Might be a good idea to try to wean yourself off the artificial sweetener, if you can.

Artificial foods/drink tend not to be good for our health in the long term.
