According to an image that has been leaked on to Reddit, everyone’s favourite chocolate spread contains half a jar of sugar.
The image posted by MrFlow, which was apparently created by a consumer centre based in Germany, shows how much sugar is in one Nutella container.
However, the amount of sugar within the tub shouldn’t come as a surprise as the nutritional information claims a jar of Nutella has 21 grams of sugar per 37 grams.
Now in Nutella’s defence, it is delicious. And you are not really meant to eat it by the spoonful.
A spokesperson for Ferrero (the company that makes Nutella) said, ‘One of Ferrero’s core nutritional beliefs is that small portion sizes help people to enjoy their favourite foods in moderation.
‘The labelling on all our products enables consumers to make informed choices and helps ensure that Nutella can be enjoyed as part of a balanced diet.’
So turns out that everything will be fine, as long as you aren’t the type of person to use this stuff to brush your teeth in the morning.
