Are Flat White Coffee Bad For You?

A freshly brewed cup of coffee, whether it's a flat white or a latte, has got to be one of life's small but significant pleasures, right?

Although a daily cup of coffee is not necessarily harmful, the type of coffee you order may be, particularly if it contains hidden sugar or fat.

Everyone has their own preferred order, and there is little that can be done to influence a person's decision, but your coffee may not be as beneficial to your health as you think it is.

Coffees that have caramel, vanilla, or hazelnut flavoring syrups added are particularly problematic because they tend to be high in sugar.

If these coffees are also made with full cream milk, the result is a high-fat product that is also high in sugar, and before you know it, your calorie intake has increased.

Cappuccinos are one of those drinks that are neither good nor bad in any way. Because there is only a sprinkling of chocolate on top, they contain less sugar, and you can customize the type of milk that is used in their preparation. 

Drinkers of flat whites coffee should take heart in the fact that it contains antioxidants, which have been linked to anti-aging properties as well as a reduced risk of type-2 diabetes.
