  1. Most non-dairy creamers just have the lactose removed for lactose intolerant people. The going assumption when nondairy creamers hit the market 30–40 years ago was that buyers were avoiding dairy due to lactose intolerance. That was mostly true back then, but now the label is incorrect. It should really be called “lactose-free creamer”. Most nondairy creamers contain milk.
    So what should you do? Try “Mocha Mix”, which is just a brand name and doesn’t have anything to do with a mocha. Or look for plant-milk-based creamers like Silk Soy Creamer, and other creamers from Silk and So Delicious. They make almond-milk and coconut-milk-based creamers as well. None of these contain milk.

  2. That makes me so mad when they do that! I guess they mean by a legal standard, due to the tiny amount of casein or whatever is in the creamer, that it isn’t considered “dairy”-it might be a “legal” definition, but if someone is vegan or just doesn’t want to consume any dairy at all, it is very misleading. “Muscle Milk” pisses me off too- it says something about containing no milk, but then it has every possible component of milk in the ingredient label. At least Coffee Mate has a coconut milk and an almond milk creamer, and So Delicious coconut milk creamer are all vegan, 100% free of dairy. Maybe “Dairy-free” means really no dairy, and “non-dairy” means has a little bit of dairy???
