After all, it has no artificial colors or preservatives!
Nutella: Made with natural ingredients including hazelnuts, milk and a hint of cocoa.
Here is what they don't bother to tell you:
Ingredients: sugar, palm oil, hazelnuts, cocoa, skim milk, reduced minerals whey (milk), lecithin as emulsifier (soy), vanillin: an artificial flavour.
So the first 2 ingredients are sugar and palm oil. Palm oil: one of the few plant based oils out there that is exceptionally high in saturated fat.
2 tablespoons will give you 200 calories (of which half are from fat), 11g of fat and 21g of sugar (about the same amount of sugar as in 4oz of coke)
Also, while it doesn't have artificial preservatives and color, it does have vanillin: a lovely little chemical that simulates vanilla.
So ask yourself honestly the next time you pick this up: can this chocolate spread really be all that healthy for you?
