While a Nutella sandwich might be one of the most tempting snacks to ever exist, a picture proves it could also probably be one of the unhealthiest foods you consume.

You would probably think “What harm could a table spoon full of Nutella cause to my health?”

Well, after seeing this picture you will certainly want to rethink that statement.

What really goes into Nutella

 

Nutella has come under fire after this photo of the ingredients in the chocolate spread began making rounds on the internet. Interestingly, the ingredients show a large portion of sugar and a sizeable amount of palm oil too, which is known to be “potentially carcinogenic” by the European Food Safety Authority.

However, Ferrero, the parent company of Nutella, has denied these claims stating that the palm oil used in the spread is “healthy and safe.”

Moving on from Nutella, here are some pictures depicting the alarming amounts of sugar that go into our favorite drinks and snacks.
