We made the decision to move to this new recipe in our liquid creamers because we consistently faced manufacturing challenges with our previous formula. We are still using real ingredients, keeping our sugar levels as low as possible and avoiding all seed and soybean oils. Our goal is always to provide the most natural and delicious cup possible.
All other liquid creamer brands who use real sugar also use cane and we learned there is a reason for that. We never want to sacrifice our ingredient beliefs, but we also need to make consistent, high-quality products.
We still love coconut sugar (it remains the sweetener in all our powdered creamers and instant lattes), but in our liquid creamers it became difficult to use and also hindered our ability to provide a consistent, high-quality experience.
Yes, the packaging is different! We moved to shelf-stable (or pantry friendly) packaging in our liquid creamers because it allowed us to provide an additional benefit to our consumers by freeing up refrigeration space until you're ready to use the product and making it more available as we can now sell these creamers on Amazon and lairdsuperfood.com. Like our previous liquid creamers, we recommend you use the product within 7-10 days of opening. We hope you enjoy it!
We have used coconut oil in the past in some of our powdered creamers and have chosen to use it in our new liquid creamer because it has a higher concentration of fat and gives the most naturally occurring MCTs possible. We continue to focus on using coconut oil rather than canola, sunflower or any other oil frequently used in the category.
Our new creamers are lighter in color largely due to the removal of coconut sugar which makes the final product much darker in color. With the lighter color it is easier to tell how much cream you’ve added to your coffee!
Gum Acacia is a natural gum from the hardened sap of the acacia tree. We have consistently used this to help emulsify our creamers and create a more consistent product in previous formulas as well as this new recipe.
Gellan Gum is a product of the fermentation of water lily pads (Sphingomonas Elodea). We use this as a gelling agent that helps keep the product from separating.
Our new liquid creamers include organic Lion’s Mane mushroom extract and organic Reishi mushroom extract. This is the same as our previous liquid creamer formula.
Lion’s Mane is an edible mushroom native to North America, Europe, and Asia. Lion’s Mane is easily identified by its bearded look. You won’t taste the lion’s mane flavor in any of our blends.
Reishi is sometimes referred to as the "Queen of Mushrooms" and has been used for thousands of years in China and Japan for overall health. Polysaccharides and beta glucans make Reishi a special mushroom.
