We know that when you see our products you have doubts... Many of you wonder what makes us different and why they are healthier than the typical creams that we find in the supermarket, chocolate, chocolate and hazelnut creams, of white chocolate… all of them delicious and that have become part of more than one of our meals of the day, but luckily, we are becoming more aware of what we eat and we worry about taking care of our diet and our health in the short term. and long term.
In order to know what we are eating and to have decision-making power, it is important that we know how to read labels and if we look at the typical cocoa creams that are common and easy to find in most supermarkets, we will find that they all have something in common, half the container can be sugar.
Can you imagine? Take a glass and fill it halfway with sugar.
Would you dare to eat it by the spoonful? Well, this is what you are doing without realizing it because they have masked it and are selling it to you as a cocoa and hazelnut cream, for example😑
As we have been telling you, in order to know when they are trying to sell us sugar for cocoa cream or hazelnut cream, it is important to know how to read the labels and something very basic that we must know is that the order of the ingredients that appear on the label nutrition goes from more to less, that is, the first ingredient is the ingredient that is most present in the product.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends a maximum consumption of 25g of sugar per day, about five teaspoons of coffee and a 250g container of some conventional cream can contain about 30 tablespoons of sugar approximately, which means that just by consuming a small portion of these creams, we would already be exceeding the total amount of sugar recommended during the day, without taking into account the rest of the intakes we make per day.
Another ingredient that tends to abound in this type of cream is fats, saturated, trans or hydrogenated fats, very uninteresting nutritionally speaking and being the cause of cardiovascular diseases, childhood obesity and of course obesity. accumulation of cholesterol and triglycerides. Therefore, we can understand the great risk involved in consuming this type of cream frequently, being on many occasions one of the favorite snacks of the little ones in the house.
These fats are usually in the form of palm oil or now that they are doing a campaign announcing "palm oil free" they mask it with some butter so that the consumer believes that this is better and he's not buying half a can of sugar but... don't be fooled!🚫
So, where are the hazelnuts and cocoa?🤷♀️
The amount of nuts and cocoa is much lower, completely losing prominence and being able to form 10% of the total product.
Otherwise, if we stop to analyze our nut butters, we have our Peanut Butter which is made up entirely of
Still have doubts?😉
