Revealed: What REALLY goes into a jar of Nutella (and the amount of sugar may shock you)

A new image claims to show exactly what goes into your jar of Nutella - and it may shock you.

Instead of the usual chocolate-hazelnut spread, this picture shows the famous jar filled with layers of the brand's five main ingredients in their raw form: palm oil, cocoa, hazelnuts, skimmed milk powder and sugar.

Each layer is said to accurately represent the proportion of each ingredient in a jar of Nutella - and shockingly, half the jar is filled with white sugar.

The picture went viral on social media this week, circulating on Reddit where it was upvoted 28,700 times.

It follows the recent Nutella cancer scare, which arose after a report by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) declared palm oil to be more carcinogenic than any other oil.

But Nutella has since denied its spread poses a cancer risk, saying the palm oil it uses is of high quality and is safe to eat. Full story...
