Nutella is a beloved nutty chocolate spread adored by millions of people around the world. We put Nutella on everything, pancakes, toast, cakes, muffins, even pizza!
In the past several decades, it appears as though the formula has remained relatively untouched, except for one thing, for many people, Nutella seems to be getting sweeter and sweeter.
What is Inside Nutella?
Nutella is a rather simple spread. It contains cocoa solids, milk powder, palm oils, hazelnuts, and of course, sugar.
Nutella is sadly not the healthiest thing to consume. This means that Nutella is out of reach for many who have to follow a strict diet for weight loss or any other health-related matter.
Nutella is absolutely jam-packed with sugar. Although its sugar content can vary in different markets, we found that an average jar of Nutella is 50% sugar and palm oil, not the healthiest ingredients, right?
Surprisingly, hazelnuts, which actually make Nutella so famous, fill out only around 13% of an average Nutella jar.
Let´s investigate some healthier alternatives to Nutella:
