Why Is Coffee Mate Flammable

Whether it’s tea or coffee, sooner or later we all end up reaching for a non-dairy creamer because there’s no milk on hand and we want a creamy hot drink. But are these non-dairy creamers a fire hazard and should we be careful when using them?

Coffee Mate is flammable because it contains highly combustible ingredients. One of the main ingredients in Coffee Mate is hydrogenated vegetable oil, which is created by adding hydrogen gas to vegetable oil under high pressure and high temperature.

What makes powdered creamer inflammable?

Coffee is made up of various ingredients, including corn syrup solids, vegetable oil, and sodium caseinate. One of the reasons why Coffee Mate is considered to be inflammable is because it contains a small amount of hydrogenated vegetable oil, which is a highly flammable substance.

When hydrogenated vegetable oil is exposed to heat or a flame, it can catch fire easily and burn quickly. This is why it’s important to keep Coffee Mate away from heat sources and to avoid exposing it to open flames or sparks. If Coffee Mate is accidentally exposed to heat or a flame, it can catch fire and become a potential fire hazard.
