The foodnetindia rating for this product :-
foodnetindia safety rating: 2 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unsafe to very safe)
The ingredients label on this product does not specify the exact amount of sugar, milk powder or cocoa used. It does not also specify which emulsifier had been used. Because of these lapses, we are unable to give it a higher safety rating.
As it is a sugary product it should be consumed in less quantity as excessive consumption of sugar can cause diabetes and obesity as well as other lifestyle diseases.
The product contains lactose and peanuts, which may cause discomfort in lactose-intolerant people or those with nut allergies.
foodnetindia wholesomeness rating: 5 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unbalanced nutrition profile to excellent nutrition profile)
Except for the sugar, the ingredients mentioned, I.e. cocoa mass, cocoa butter and milk powder make this product a healthy and wholesome addition to any meal plan that is otherwise nutritionally complete.
Milk and cocoa are both a healthy addition to almost any meal plan..
Ingredients in Cocoacraft Charge which are a concern:
Cocoacraft Charge is a sugary product, 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.
Certain emulsifiers have side effects ranging from tooth decay to cancer. It is important that manufacturers specify which emulsifiers are used.
We believe that it is not responsible behaviour for a brand to avoid clearly stating what ingredients have been used.
Other ingredients that are in the product but not a major source of concern in our opinion are:
- Cocoa Mass
- Cocoa Butter
- Skimmed Milk Powder
- Natural Vanilla
- Roasted Peanuts
