Nutella/Chocolate-flavoured Hazelnut Spread: How Much Vitamin K?

This came to my attention when the food tent at my recent triathlon served Nutella on bagels.  It tasted really good for recovery food, so I had to look into it.

There is vitamin K in Nutella:

  • In 100 grams/3.5 ounces of Nutella, there is 1.9 mcg of vitamin K – 2% of the Daily Value (DV)
  • 37 grams/2 tablespoons of Nutella, there’s 0.7 mcg of vitamin K – 1% DV
  • 28 grams/1 ounce of Nutella, there’s 0.5 mcg of vitamin K – 1% DV

From what I understand, the smallest Nutella container is 200 grams – 4% DV if you consume it all within a day.  That’s not a cause for concern, but it’s worth exercising caution if you really like binging occasionally.

I don’t remember liking the taste, but nutritionally speaking – I’d prefer vegemite/marmite (vitamin K info).  Vegemite/marmite are both also vegan, when you have to make your own choco-hazelnut spread to get vegan.
