Frequently Asked Questions
Is Naturya Cacao & Hazelnut Crunch Spread healthier than other vegan chocolate spreads?
Naturya Cacao & Hazelnut Crunchy Spread is certainly a healthier option than most chocolate spreads that are available. This is due to it containing no refined sugar, cacao instead of cocoa, and over half its makeup being nuts.
Unrefined sugar has a lower glycaemic index (GI) than refined sugar. A lower GI means that it will not raise your blood sugar level as high. Furthermore, when sugar is refined antioxidants and other plant goodness are lost in the process. Unrefined sugars retain these nutrients.
Similarly to the refining process with sugars, cocoa is the refined version of cacao. This means that cacao retains its high level of antioxidants, magnesium, and copper – minerals that are minimised when refined into cocoa.
Finally, a lot of other chocolate spreads will have sugar and/or oil as their primary ingredient rather than nuts. ThisCacao & Hazelnut Crunchy Spread has a much lower sugar content than these spreads. Furthermore, instead of pure fat from oils, the nuts provide fibre and protein along with their good fatty acids.
