You may not know that nutella is a hazelnut spread ( not chocolate ) and releases its energy slowly. It is a low glycaemic index (GI) food. In fact every 15g portion contains 2 whole hazelnuts, some skimmed milk and a dash of cocoa.
Suggested serving amount - we (nutella) suggest that a 15g portion of nutella should be eaten on a piece of wholegrain toast such as wholemeal, seeded or granary. 15g is equivalent to around 2 teaspoons. With nutella, there is no need to add butter or spreads. This means a 15g portion of nutella on toast contains less fat (3.5 less) and sugar (2.2g less) than jam and butter on toast (measured against a 15g portion of jam with 10g butter).
History of nutella
From its beginnings in Italy in 1946, nutella has grown to become the worlds leading hazelnut spread and is now marketed in 75 countries.
nutella in its original form, was first created in the 1940's by Mr Pietro Ferrero, a patisserie maker and founder of the Ferrero company. At the time, cocoa was in short supply due to rationing during World War II, which meant that cocoa beans were not readily available.; so Pietro Ferrero mixed toasted hazelnuts with cocoa, cocoa butter and vegetable oil to create 'Pasta Gianduja.'
In 1949, Ferrero altered the original recipe so it could easily be spread on bread. This became known as 'Supercrema Gianduja.' Eventually in 1964, in recognition of the international appeal of the hazelnut taste, the product was renamed 'nutella.'
Launched in the UK in 1964, nutella celebrated 45 years of family breakfasts in 2009 and is the No 1 sweet spreads line in the UK.
