SUPERFOOD CREAMER SHAKES UP GLOBAL COFFEE INDUSTRY (PLUS RECIPES)

Coffee creamer is used in countries all around the world as a convenient substitute for milk. It has a longer shelf life than milk, comes in liquid and powered forms and can be added to tea, coffee and chocolate drinks.

What are the ingredients in Creamer?

Typically, a creamer combines refined sugar syrups, additives, flavours, vegetable oils and sodium caseinate (a milk protein derived from casein). Coffee creamer can also contain trans fats to increase the stabilisation of the product. Trans fats are known to contribute to health issues such as high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes and increased risk of heart disease.

Superfood Creamer

In stark contrast, Laird Superfood Creamers are crafted from the highest quality all-natural whole food ingredients. Their entire range is sustainably sourced and thoroughly tested to ensure only the cleanest, finest products are created.

It’s the value-added, non-dairy creamer that, according to SPINS data, is the fastest growing brand in natural and speciality channels in the US!

Co-founder, Laird Hamilton is an American big-wave surfer, co-inventor of tow-in surfing, and world renowned “waterman”. He has appeared in a variety of movies and was recently interviewed by Joe Rogan for the Joe Rogan Experience, one of the world’s most popular podcasts.

Laird created Laird Superfood Creamer out of his personal desire to enhance his daily coffee and keep himself energised for longer when out in the water.

“At Laird Superfood, we think of our clean-ingredient products as fuel. With the right fuel, you can accomplish anything” says Laird.
