How much sugar is in Nutella? Canadian doctor decodes what’s in the hazelnut spread
health-policy professors concluded in one of the most detailed looks yet at the differences in doctor compensation between nations. The U.K. also pays its surgeons more than Canada, while both it and Germany better compensate primary-care doctors, like family physicians and pediatricians, the comparison of six industrialized countries suggests. Canada should not ignore the wage gap, as a sudden shortage of certain specialists in the States could trigger a drain from here, said Dr. John Haggie, president of the Canadian Medical Association. Canada saw a net loss of doctors to the U.S. in the 1990s, as provinces instituted doctor pay caps and tried to rein-in fee increases as a way to corral health costs. But Dr. Haggie voiced no particular envy Tuesday at the statistics just published in the journal Health Affairs , saying that factors other than money influence where doctors settle, including for some the appeal of Canadas universal, government-funded health system. A good salary package is an attractor, its a magnet but it doesnt always have the same effect at the other end when youre trying to retain people, said Dr. Haggie. The system in which (physicians) work is part of the attraction of working here. That migration to the U.S. has reversed in the last few years, with a small net influx of MDs from south of the border as incomes rose here, according to statistics and the accounts of medical recruitment agencies.

If Nutella is a morning breakfast staple in your kitchen, you should probably stop reading this story. A Canadian doctor is sounding the warning bells about the chocolate hazelnut spread, showing viewers in a new video just how much sugar goes into two tablespoons. Story continues below His answer: five hazelnuts, some skim milk powder, whey powder and cocoa powder, about a half teaspoon of palm oil and 5.5 teaspoons of sugar, which is an amazing feat,Dr. Yoni Freedhoff adds. Make no mistake, Nutella is spreadable candy. It is not healthy, breakfast does not love it. You might love it, but this does not help to make a nutritious breakfast fun, it helps to make a nutritious breakfast non-nutritious, Freedhoff said. Hes a leading obesity expert and physician at the University of Ottawa and Bariatric Medical Institute. The video was posted Monday in his blog, Weighty Matters . Its already been shared more than 3,200 times . Watch the video here. To put it in perspective, Freedhoff stacks five Oreo cookies on top of a piece of toast thats the equivalent of the amount of sugar in the spoonfuls of Nutella. His findings are based on the ad suggesting there are 94 hazelnuts in a jar and the nutrition facts panel on the product. (Global News graphic) There are literally no name frosted icings that have fewer calories and less sugar than Nutella does spoon for spoon, Freedhoff said.
