What? Not Nutella! For many Nutella has bee that go-to spread that works on just about anything. It’s been used by all kinds of different folks. From the price conscious to the high end organic crowd. Everyone’s indulged in some good ol’, and supposedly healthy, Nutella.
Here are a few of the ingredients in Nutella which are of major concern:
While soy has gone back and forth throughout the years, at one point being touted as a superior plant based protein powder, the reality is that soy is not good, especially in the way it is made and the amounts in which it is offered. While Asian cultures consumed soy, they did so through naturally grown soybeans, and at much smaller amounts. It is the soy lecithin which is the red flag in regards to soy as it is related to such ailments as depression, non-controllable weight gain, fatigue, delayed menstruation, premature entry into puberty and breast cancer.
This isn’t the all natural organic sugar. This is the cheap stuff. The real cheap stuff. And when you deal with the cheap stuff you are potentially dealing with the onset of ADD, ADHD, autism, depression, anxiety, and migraines. The cheap stuff comes from genetically modified sugar beets which doesn’t shy away from the likes of pesticides and altered sugar which our own bodies don’t even recognize.
Like soy, skim milk had it’s day in the sun. A wonderful alternative to high fat milk, right? We were always told by our elders to drink our milk for strong bones and muscles. Well, their milk would have been fine. Unfortunately, OUR milk is now the result of sickly factory treated cows fed with GMO corn, stuffed with antibiotics and other assembly line additives which serve to provide, here’s that word again, “cheap” product. Once again cheap milk usually is linked to diseased milk.
It must be wrongly spelled, right? Nope, it’s not vanilla kids, it’s vanillin! And is it a coincidence it sounds like villain? Well, this villain does in fact serve to trick your brain into thinking it is vanilla and usually succeeds. It can also act as a neurotoxin, killing off those useless brain cells while causing a very addictive pattern to set in through your brain receptors. Oh, it’s also made in China’s petroleum-based factories, and yes, you guessed it, it’s made to be very cheap.
So there you have it. Nutella has some nasty ingredients. GMO’s, neurotoxins, cheap sugar and fake vanilla. No thanks, I think I’ll pass, and I’d suggest you pass on giving this stuff to your children as well.
