I was really hoping someone might take a stab at answering my formulation question.

We love Nutella too, but why is it made in different formulations in different locations? The stuff I get at Costco is made in Canada and contains palm kernel oil (bad). The stuff I get at the local grocer is made in USA with soybeal oil. I'm sure the "real" stuff from Europe is completely different. Why?


manufacturers of ANY GOODS usually try to spend as little money as possibble to produce their goods . different government (health) regulations also come into play - nothing unusual about that , really .

another example is NIVEA skincream : produced originally in germany , but now also in USA , mexico , thailand ... and all slightly different .
(just don't substitute the NIVEA for NUTELLA on your toast - won't do a thing for your complexion !).

For instance, there're different food laws in Europe. Thus, we don't have trans fat acids and no hydrogenated oils/fats ...

(USDA allows manufacturers to round down 0.49 or less grams of trans fat per serving to zero. That's why U.S. Nutella can list zero grams even though the ingredients include partially-hydrogenated peanut oil.)

OK, that makes sense, but why mess with a perfectly good formula? Do they make Coke differently in different places?

most likely.

Set's often posted about the different ingredient list for Dr. Pepper made in Canada, v the Dr. Pepper made in the U.S. The Canajun one has an ingredient in common with anti-freeze Shocked

~~~

I know that the Mexican Coca-Cola is still made with 'real' sugar vs the American and Canadian formulations (the food board I hang out at has discussed it a number of times). There are some small Mexican green-grocers here where you can get the good, original Coca-Cola formulation - tastes much better.

I never realized that the ingredients varied between countries.

In Europe, you get two Nutella-version: one for the northern countries - the (original) German version, more cacao and not so sweet, and the southern version, sweeter and more nutty.

Btw: in German, Nutella doesn't have an article, so it's unclear wich gender it is :wink:

And this applies as well to the other widely used "tropical oil": coconut oil. Being high in saturated fats they both raise our cholesterol, even though they contain no cholesteral themselves (that's a monopoly of animal products).

Interesting! The one that I bought and is haunting me is sweet and extremely yummy.

Since 100 calories, loaded with saturated fat is not on my diet of things I allow myself to eat often, but I do keep a few things around for the times I feel the need to be bad Twisted Evil

Read this thread about a month ago. Bought some Nutella to try it. It's still sitting in the cabinet with about a tablespoonful missing. I really don't get the Nutella thing...
