Nestlé’s Original Fat Free Coffee-mate Creamer
No fat or sugar? In fact, this product has both. It’s just that the serving size is only one (level) teaspoon, so the sugar and fat round down to zero because that serving has less than a half gram of each. And the Food and Drug Administration allows this! Most people use more than one level teaspoon. A two-tablespoon serving has more calories than two tablespoons of half and half!
Consumers should be wary of over-the-top label claims.
