But first, take a quick glance at why nutella is not the best choice especially for breakfast.

Ferrero sells nutella as a hazelnut spread with cocoa.
But these ingredients are not the main ingredients. They are only present in a small amount.

In fact, according to Italian regulation, the concentration of chocolate solids in nutella is too low to call it a chocolate spread at all.
So what’s the main ingredient then? Sugar and palm oil.

These two ingredients make up more than 70% of the product. The other ingredients are hazelnuts (about 13%), skimmed milk powder (8,7%), cocoa (7,4%), soy lecithin, and vanillin.

It seems that Ferrero has changed the recipe in 2017, increasing the sugar and skim milk content.
If you look at these numbers it’s quite clear why nutella isn’t a good breakfast choice. In fact, you could look at it as a sweet treat like chocolate, and a bad one that is.

Most of the calories come from hydrogenated palm oil and sugar.
Palm oil is a vegetable oil that goes through extensive processing. That’s why it contains significant amounts of chemical residues.
It’s the cheapest vegetable oil out there but also one of the worst choices for your health.

The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends limiting the amount of added sugars.
For women and children no more than 6 teaspoons (25 g) of sugar per day and about 9 teaspoons (36 g) per day for men.

Only one serving of nutella (2 tbsp) contains 5 teaspoons of sugar!

That means you shouldn’t eat any added sugarafter consuming a nutella breakfast for the rest of the day.

But it’s unlikely that you’re going to be completely sugar-free during the rest of the day. And face it most of the people eating nutella don’t stop at two tablespoons.
So a nutella breakfast paves your way for an almost certain sugar overload.
A
s you know added sugar contributes to zero nutrients. But leads to obesity and metabolic syndrome in the long run.
