Nutella in Brief
Nutella as part of a varied diet
Nutella was first created in the 1940s by Mr Pietro Ferrero, a patisserie maker and founder of the Ferrero company. Originally named ‘Pasta Gianduja’, reflecting one of the main ingredients, it was renamed Nutella in 1964 and, shortly afterwards, was introduced to the UK. A single portion of Nutella (15g), which equates to one heaped teaspoon, contains 80 calories, and can be enjoyed as part of a varied diet. In practice this means that a breakfast with a single 15g portion of Nutella is comparable in calories to a breakfast with a serving of jam or marmalade with butter.
