I know you are thinking ‘healthy Nutella? is it possible’? Yes, it is! And there is no sugar, palm oil or artificial flavor. I can’t blame people for being addicted from Nutella but they should know why it’s not good for them and there is a healthy replacement.
Want to know why you should delete it from your kid’s menu?
- Two tablespoons of Nutella contain 21 grams of sugar, the equivalent of 5 teaspoons of sugar
- Modified vegetable oils. These oils are highly processed and most commonly genetically modified
- A high sugar intake first thing in the morning will spike blood sugar levels, resulting in a plummet mid morning and contribute to poor concentration, hyper activity, and aggression.
- Soy Lecithin and Vanillin. These are probably the most dangerous ingredients found in Nutella. Soy lecithin, in particular, is bad for your health because it is a GMO product and leads to issues such as obesity, thyroid dysfunction, constipation, and breast cancer. Vanillin is used to create a flavor of true vanilla, but it is a cheaply produced chemical that contains MSG as well as small amounts of neurotoxins that can kill brain cells.
The only good ingredients in Nutella are hazelnuts. Therefore they are also high in calories and cannot reverse the negative effects of other Nutella’s ingredients.
So probably now you want to get my recipe for healthy Nutella? Here you go!
