Don’t Get Suckered in by Coffee Syrups
It’s easy to see the appeal of coffee syrups. Offering a vast array of flavors ranging from traditional favorites like vanilla and caramel to more uncommon additions like apple and cheesecake, these companies know how to get customers' mouths watering. Brands that slap the Sugar-Free label onto their products are even harder to resist. But the lack of sugar doesn’t necessarily make it good for you.
Looking at two popular sugar-free coffee syrups - Skinny Mixes and Torani - their ingredient lists include sucralose. This artificial flavor is known to be detrimental to gut health.
Skinny Mixes’ label also features the ominous phrase “Natural & Artificial Flavor.” The fact that they refuse to specify what exactly these ingredients are is concerning and indicates that the syrup likely contains other harmful substances in addition to sucralose.
Torani even admits to using an excessive amount of cane sugar, with some flavors packing as much as 20g into a single serving. Despite being a natural ingredient, cane sugar has the same chemical composition as granulated sugar and nearly identical amounts of calories and carbs.
