Nutella is a staple in pantries across the country. The popular chocolate spread is perfect on bread, in cakes, cookies, and pastries but how good is it for you?
According to one Reddit user, Mr Flow, in addition to the milk, cocoa, hazelnuts and palm oil, a jar of Nutella contains an alarmingly high amount of sugar.
As shown in the viral image above, almost half of the jar is made up of white sugar while the remaining ingredients including the controversial palm oil makes up the rest. Nutella’s website states that the spread is sweetened with high-quality beet sugar and refined cane sugar. Regardless of where the sugar comes from, it is important to note that a 15g serving of Nutella (2 teaspoons) contains 8.5 g of sugar which is definitely not part of a healthy and balanced diet.
So will this change the way you eat Nutella?
