Bauli Spyroll ingredients are -refined wheat flour, sugar, egg, glucose fructose syrup, acidity regulator, milk solids, cocoa solids, humectant, emulsifier, preservative, salt, leavening agent, flour treatment agent. The chocolate cream contains ingredients like- glucose fructose syrup, humectant, palm oil, sugar, cocoa solids, emulsifier, salt, acidity regulator, preservative. The choco layer contains sugar, hydrogenated vegetable fat-palm kernel, cocoa solids, emulsifier, preservative.
It has a high amount of added sugar at 31.9 gm per 100 gm pack, high sugar consumption can lead to diabetes and lifestyle diseases. It can also lead to childhood obesity and expose children to early onset lifestyle diseases.
Bauli Spyroll contains edible vegetable oil- palm oil. Palm oil is generally a safe oil as unlike most other vegetable oils, palm is primarily saturated fat. It does not have too much PUFA, which can get oxidized under heat and is often rendered toxic.
However, last year, the safety authority delivered a scientific report that current levels of glycerol-based process contaminants found in palm oil are a “potential health concern.” Animal studies have identified these contaminants, which are formed when vegetable oils are heated to high temperatures and then refined, as both genotoxic (damaging to DNA) and carcinogenic (causing cancer). Of all vegetable oils, palm oil was found to have the highest levels of these contaminants. At high levels of exposure, these contaminants are a health hazard for all age groups, the authority concluded, expressing particular concern for infants, toddlers and children under the age of 10.
Bauli Spyroll contains hydrogenated vegetable fat-palm kernel in it. Partially Hydrogenated and Hydrogenated fats are a source of trans fatty acids or “transfats”, which are harmful to health. Transfats increase the likelihood of heart disease, stroke, cancer and many other ailments.
This product mentions it contains salt as an ingredient but no quantity is mentioned on the food label. This is not acceptable as consumers need to know exactly what they are eating and this is basically denying their right to know. High sodium diets have been known to be the cause of high blood pressure, heart disease, etc. The recommended daily intake of salt is between 1-3 grams.
Due to these ingredients including high sugar and simple starches content we believe that this food must be eaten very sparingly and in very small amounts even by the healthy.
The foodnetindia rating for this product :-
foodnetindia safety rating: 3 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unsafe to very safe)
Bauli Spyroll contains 31.9 gm of sugar per 100 gm serving. High sugar consumption is detrimental to the health and wellness of all those who consume it.
It contains hydrogenated vegetable fat and may contain trans-fats which are toxic and have been shown to consistently be associated, in an intake-dependent way, with risk of coronary heart disease, the leading cause of death. They may also be responsible for alzheimer’s disease, cancer, liver disease and many more ailments.
It is made of refined wheat flour or maida and is a high glycaemic simple starch base. In our opinion, the high sugar and simple starches content make this unsuitable for diabetics and also for those who have lifestyle disease.
foodnetindia wholesomeness rating: 3 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unbalanced nutrition profile to excellent nutrition profile)
It contains milk solids, cocoa solids and eggs, which are nutritious but also contains a lot of ingredients which may not be good for health. High sugar, salt, use of a host of additives in it are a worrying factor as kids and adults both eat snacks like this in large portions without worrying about the ingredients on the food label.
Ingredients of concern in Bauli Spyroll
- Glucose Fructose Syrup
- Hydrogenated Vegetable Fat-Palm Kernel
- Artificial flavouring Substances- Milk, Chocolate and Vanilla
This food product does not specify which sugar has been used. This is also 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.
Sugar is a carbohydrate found naturally in a host of different foods from lactose in milk to the fructose in fruit and honey. In fact, we need some sugar in our diets to supply ready energy to fuel our muscles and keep our brains active. The problem is that many processed foods have added sugar which supplies energy in the form of calories – and very little else. This means our body has to draw on the nutrients from the rest of our diet to process it and this can affect our health, including our immunity – leaving us more prone to bugs and colds. A high intake of sugar causes our blood sugar levels to shoot up, giving us that feel-good ‘high’ followed by a crashing slump which leaves us tired, irritable and craving more sugary foods. It’s a vicious cycle that may be contributing to our weight problems as well as health concerns like diabetes and heart disease.
High sodium diets have been known to be the cause of high blood pressure, heart disease, etc. The recommended daily intake of salt is between 1-3 grams.
Glucose Fructose Syrup
Glucose syrup, also known as confectioner’s glucose, is a syrup made from the hydrolisis of starch. Glucose is a sugar. Excessive sugar consumption is linked to a wide variety of metabolic diseases.
Hydrogenated Vegetable Fat- Palm Kernel
Partially Hydrogenated and Hydrogenated fats are a source of trans fatty acids or “transfats”, which are harmful to health. Transfats increase the likelihood of heart disease, stroke, cancer and many other ailments.
Transfats are toxic and some cities like New York have banned them from use in restaurants.
Transfats have been shown to consistently be associated, in an intake-dependent way, with risk of coronary heart disease, the leading cause of death. They may also be responsible for alzheimer’s disease, cancer, liver disease and many more ailments.
Hydrogenated fat is widely used. We see it listed in the ingredients of margarine, biscuits, cakes, frozen meals, fried foods, sweets, crisps, fish fingers and many dairy products. It’s popular with food manufacturers because it gives food structure and does not feel or taste oily.
Artificial Flavours-Milk, Cocoa and Vanilla
This product does not specify the chemical names of the flavours used and does not mention the quantity used either. While we understand that the legal labelling requirements allow this practice, we find it irresponsible that brands do not self disclose.
Some people are allergic to some of these chemicals and others may want to avoid them. Consumers have a right to know and decide.
