Hi, my name is Swaimah and today I will be giving a speech about Nutella. Nutella is a sweetened hazelnut cocoa spread made by Ferrero, an Italian company that’s the third-largest chocolate producer in the world.
Pietro Ferrero owned a bakery in Alba, an Italian town known for the production of hazelnuts. It was first introduced in 1964, It was originally created in Italy during World War II when baker Pietro Ferrero added ground hazelnuts to a chocolate spread to make up for a shortage of cocoa in the country.
Nutella was known as SuperCrema. The recipe was improved, leading to the creation of the first-ever jar of hazelnut and cocoa cream. Nutella was officially born. Nutella was Officially Born on April 20 1964.
This chocolate and hazelnut spread is consumed in many ways and commonly used as a topping for breakfast toast, pancakes, waffles, and many more.
Nutella contains: Palm oil, Cocoa, Hazelnuts, Skimmed milk powder, Sugar and Vanillin. Nutella has 100 Calories, 12 Grams of fat, 21 Grams of sugar and 20 Grams of protein.
Did you know the secret ingredient in nutella is that Pietro Ferrero’s son added vegetable oil in nutella. Nutella is often advertised as a quick and simple way to make a tasty, kid-friendly breakfast. Nutella reduces the risk of developing heart diseases.
Nutella contains calcium that strengthens your bones and teeth. The iron in Nutella helps in making red blood cells in your body. While most of the world loves Nutella, France is particularly keen on it. The country reportedly eats a quarter of all the pots that are produced. That’s about 75,000 tonnes of Nutella eaten in France each year.
Did you know that Nutella was available in a total of 160 countries. Each jar of nutella contains approximately 52 hazelnuts. Nutella is considered to be one of the top-selling hazelnut spreads in the world. All the nutella spread made in a year could cover over 1000 regulation-size soccer fields.
The company which made nutella, Ferrero SpA, uses a quarter of the world’s supply of hazelnuts, with one jar using around 50 hazelnuts. Somewhere in the world a nutella jar is sold every 2.5 seconds. That meant the company made 360 tons of nutella last year alone. On February 5, 2015 the world celebrated nutella world day. Sara Rosso founded World Nutella Day in 2007 in celebration and a way to introduce her favourite spread to her friends.
