  1. I don’t know any reason it’s unhealthy to add milk to your coffee. There are health alarmists or health bloggers looking for attention, who will make extreme food statements without verified supporting evidence.

  2. There seem to be thousands of similar questions about mixing foods. And the answer to them all is the same- you can eat or drink what you like in any combination.
    To save you the trouble of asking about another food combination, here is a test to check them all.
    Does the coffee container warn you not to mix with milk?
    Does the bottle of milk have a warning about not adding to coffee?
    It doesn’t, right?
    Then you can combine them.
    Another way to determine it is to look for recipes. If 2 items are hazardous to consume together, there will not be thousands of recipes on how to use them.

  3. No. I’ve been doing it (with half and half) for years. Europeans have been drinking lattes for centuries.
    What’s next, are you going to ask if it’s unhealthy to mix peanut butter and jelly? Mashed potatoes and gravy? 🙂

  4. There’s nothing inherently unhealthy about mixing milk with your coffee although milk may reduce the availability of coffee’s chlorogenic acids (CGA), a class of antioxidants believed to be part of coffee’s beneficial health effects.
    The research on coffee and CGA levels is contradictory. One study that looked at levels of CGA and its metabolites in the urine found a reduced level with dairy (about a 28% reduction), but another that measured CGA blood concentrations found no significant differences. (Oddly, the use of non-dairy creamer did seem to lower the blood titer.) Both studies were small and had some other limitations.
    Even if you drink lots of coffee, the reported reduction in CGAs with dairy is likely to be insignificant, if indeed it is real.
    Incidentally, adding milk to tea may also reduce some of its cardiovascular benefits. Again, the study was small, and this time did not measure compounds in the blood or urine, but rather vascular function. Since soy milk had the same effect, the researchers speculated that it was the proteins in dairy or soy that were binding to the beneficial antioxidants in tea, making them less bioavailable. (While this study did not look at non-dairy creamer, such products contain sodium caseinate, derived from milk protein.)
    Still, if you like milk in your coffee or tea, there is no evidence that it is harmful, though perhaps less beneficial that drinking it “straight.”

  5. Before asking “Why?” one should ask “If…”
    Your premise is flawed and untrue. Consumed in moderation neither coffee nor milk are inherently unhealthy. Consumed in moderation, coffee & milk together as a combination is not unhealthy.

  6. No. If you intend drinking them, this is actually the normal way to do it.
    If you are allergic/intolerant of either coffee or dairy products, you would obviously not mix them if you intended to drink the result yourself.

  8. When is the last time you heard of someone dying from it? When is the last time you heard of someone becoming ill from it? When is the last time you heard the SWAT team called out because someone had a stash of it? When was the last time you heard the police VICE squad was turned out because someone was dealing it on a street corner.
    I think it is safe to say that you said that it has never happened so it is safe to say that it is pretty safe to consume.

  9. Milk slows down polyohenoł absorbtion time when mixed with coffee.
    Milk improves in the flavour of coffee.
    Milk improves the mouth feel and nutrititional contents of coffee.
    Milk-coffee mixture when hot, formes a slight complex which may be hard to be absorbed in the body.
    Milk can or cannot be taken with coffee. Evaluate more of the risks, check your preferences and decide for yourself.

  10. Drinking coffee with milk is not bad unless
    You have excess try have it with Without sugar
    For health benefits the reason is if you having
    Coffee with milk and sugar say 3 to 4 Cups a day
    You might be adding more sugar the more sugar
    It creates problems in long term.

  11. depends on your preference if you like your coffee more bitter or it tasting a bit lighter and sweeter i like my coffee with milk as it is too strong for me to drink it straight by itself


  12. you could ask is drinking coffee with “insert anything” here bad
    its a personal taste & decision, drinking too much of anything is bad, coffee included,
    moderation is the key, what you put in your coffee is up to your tastes.


  13. This is a very opinion based question, I personally don’t drink or add milk to my coffee. It would also depend on your taste, why you are drinking the milk and what your hoping to get out of it.

  14. Why do you need other people’s opinion on this matter? Try out each way of drinking coffee and see which you prefer. (While you’re at it try coffee with cream instead of milk.) These are the kind of decisions you can make for yourself.
    If go on in this dependant attitude you’ll be next asking whether it’s the right time for you to go take a pee.

  15. Who says they’re not healthy. If you drink in moderation both are beneficial. If you drink milk by the gallon and coffee by the pot you’re asking for trouble. As with most things moderation is the way to go.

  16. Dairy is not healthy for adults. Half of the Homo Sapiens on the planet do not eat dairy and they tend to be healthier than Westerners (when excluding infectious diseases from the equation).

  17. It isn’t. It may be a popular opinion around you with your friends family and aquaintances, but it isn’t unhealthy. There are a lot of myths running around related to health, fitness, exercise. Try to be careful and find a good source to clear this information. Or ask me, if you trust me.
    But find someone you can trust.

  18. It isn’t. An ounce/25 grams of whole milk would be quite a lot for an 8 oz/200 gram coffee, yet it only has 19 calories, or about 1% of a typical adult’s daily requirement. It is also enough calcium to neutralize caffeine’s effect of stripping calcium from your bones (it is quite low, you won’t lose bone density if you drink black coffee, unless your diet is very calcium deficient), so it provides some benefits. If you like milk in your coffee, stay with it.
    I used to drink coffee with milk, but I now try to maintain a 12 hour fast, so I went completely black (no milk/creamer or sweetener) in the morning. It was a bit rough at first, but now I’m used to it, and rarely add anything to it regardless of the time of day.
    What can add a lot of fat and calories is the “candy coffee” drinks, which are basically flavored sweetened fat with a touch of coffee. For example, a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino 16 oz has 450 calories, 15 grams of fat (9 are saturated). That is a meal, not a drink. While my 14 year old son can probably chug a few of those a day and not gain any weight, that is not the case for my middle aged metabolism.
    *Edit: Due to some sort of genetic defect, I am incapable of typing “from”. It always comes out form. It has gotten to the point where I try not to type that word, because regardless of my concentration, it comes out wrong nearly every time. Unfortunately, the unintended word is still a word, so spell check doesn’t pick it up. Probably due to excess coffee consumption.

  19. Good grief, no – what is the claimed unhealthy effect from doing this?
    With milk is the normal way to drink coffee in most of Western Europe; the latte and cappuccino are the two most famous milky coffees I can think of.
