Italian Study Warns Hazelnut Spreads Are 'Calorie Bombs'

Hazelnut spreads in Italy contain few hazelnuts, a lot of sugar and fat, and represent а 'calorie bomb' for consumers, according to a recent study.

This is the main conclusion of a test conducted by the South Tyrolean Consumer Protection Centre, which analysed 27 hazelnut spreads in Italian supermarkets. The test was based on a similar study conducted in Germany by consumer magazine Oko-test.

The Italian study included best-selling spreads such as Nutella, Novi, Pernigotti, Rigoni, Despar and Coop private-label versions, as well as 15 organic spreads that are among the best sellers in South Tyrol.
