Nutella is one of favorite chocolate spreads and lots of people -- kids and grownups alike -- love seeing them on their breakfast tables.
However, you might want to think twice about buying another bottle of this famous spread. Research shows that Nutella has ingredients, such as too much sugar and vanillin, which might do harm to your health!
Meghantelpner.com warns consumers that eating Nutella first thing in the morning is not good for your health: "High sugar intake first thing in the morning will spike blood sugar level, resulting in a plummet mid morning and contribute to poor concentration, hyperacidity and aggression."
According to the website, "Nutella contains 70% saturated fat and processed sugar by weight. A two-tablespoon (37 gram) serving of Nutella contians 200 calories including: 99 calories from 11 grams of fat (3.5g of which are saturated), 80 calories from 21 grams of sugar."
Meanwhile, snopes.com said that there is another ingredient found in Nutella that is considered to be one of the most harmful ingredients -- vanillin.
"Vanillin is nothing but chemicals," snopes.com wrote.
The site also stated that "vaillin is about 95% of the scent" and has monosodium glutamate (MSG), an ingredient that can really damage your health if consumed daily.
Furthermore, The American Nutrition Associations claims that excitotoxin is a "taste that kills." Excitotoxins are glutamate, aspartate and cysreine, amino acids which “excite our neurons” but can cause blood-brain barrier and neurodegenerative diseases such as ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.
So to all moms out there, better check the label of your next choco-spread before serving them to your kids. If you really love Nutella, at least consume in moderation.
