Cocoa and hazelnuts are two of the smallest ingredients when it comes to total volume.

Palm oil is used to make the spread…more ‘spreadable’. There are some health benefits to palm oil, but like many foods…there have been some links to palm oil causing certain types of cancers.

There are quite a few concerns about how palm oil is cultivated.
