Cadbury Hot Chocolate is a popular drinking chocolate brand in India and the world.
The product does not mention the exact amount of Cocoa solids on its nutritional label, and has a lot of sugar in it.
Cadbury Hot Chocolate contains 13 gm of sugar in 18 gm of the product, and those with obesity issues and lifestyle diseases should be conscious of how much they are consuming.
We recommend pure cocoa powder with nothing added as a far healthier and safer option for everyone.
The foodnetindia rating for this product :-
foodnetindia safety rating: 3 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unsafe to very safe)
The high amount of sugar 13 gm per 18 gm serving of the product makes it unsafe and unhealthy for consumption as people tend to add more sugar to the beverage for consumption.
foodnetindia wholesomeness rating: 4 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unbalanced nutrition profile to excellent nutrition profile)
We are disappointed in a brand like Cadbury for not putting up the exact amount of cocoa in this product as the customers would like to know the exact percentage if cocoa used in it.
The high sugar content in this product is not good for health and unsafe for those with type 2 diabetes, when consumed in the typical manner with even more sugar added to the beverage.
Ingredients in Cadbury Hot Chocolate which are a concern:
This food product does not specify which flavours or flavouring substances have been used. The flavours should be specified as some of them have serious side effects and may not be suitable for infants, pregnant women or people who are allergic. We believe that it is not responsible behaviour for a brand to avoid clearly stating what ingredients have been used.
By not specifying what these flavours and substances are, we are forced to consider what they are hiding and why would they be so reluctant to mention what they have used in the food product!
Cadbury Hot Chocolate contains 13 gm sugar per 18 gm of it. This food product does not specify which sugar has been used. This is important because different sugars have different metabolic effects. For example, Sucrose (Cane Sugar) is very different from Fructose (Fruit Sugar). Some foods use high fructose corn syrup which may be harmful in much lower quantities than sucrose. We believe that it is not responsible behaviour for a brand to not clearly state what ingredients have been used.
