Ritter Sport Chocolates was founded in 1912 in Germany.
The Fine extra dark chocolate is a premium range of dark chocolates containing a high cocoa content of 73% cocoa mass in it.
The chocolate is high in sugar at 23 gm per 100 gm pack which could be detrimental for the health of diabetics and those with lifestyle diseases.
The foodnetindia rating for this product :-
foodnetindia safety rating : 5 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unsafe to very safe)
The high sugar content in this product makes it unsafe when consumed in large quantities, which many people are prone to do. This product should only be consumed by the healthy and in small quantities.
foodnetindia wholesomeness rating : 5 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unbalanced nutrition profile to excellent nutrition profile)
The product contains wholesome cocoa mass and cocoa butter which is good but overall we feel that the high sugar content is bad for the health of kids facing childhood obesity and adults with problems like obesity and lifestyle diseases.
Ingredients in Ritter Sport: Fine Extra Dark Chocolate
The product contains 23 gm of sugar. 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.
Added Natural Flavour
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!
By this behaviour, these manufacturers expose people to possible allergens or toxins that could be avoided if consumers knew what they were.
