Some hazelnut spreads contain palm oil, but instead of palm oil, Rigoni di Asiago’s organic Nocciolata chocolate hazelnut spread is made with the healthier and environmentally-responsible cold-pressed sunflower oil. The product maintains an undeniably superior flavor and smooth, creamy, easy-to-spread texture.
Made with organic ingredients completely free of GMO's, preservatives, colors, additives, or artificial sweeteners, Nocciolata combines hazelnuts, cocoa and cocoa butter, natural vanilla extract, raw cane sugar, and skimmed milk for a chocolate-hazelnut spread.
It also contains far less sugar than other brands and is free from hydrogenated fats. Rigoni di Asiago even released a certified vegan, dairy free version, Nocciolata Dairy Free.
Rigoni di Asiago is a family-owned and operated business based in the Altopiano di Asiago, a mountain plateau in Northern Italy. Committed to sourcing the finest ingredients, their certified organic products include Fiordifrutta fruit spread (the leading brand in Italy), Nocciolata hazelnut and chocolate spread, Dolcedì natural sweetener and Mielbio, honey from the best production areas of Italy.
The company was one of the first in Europe to turn to organic farming in the early 1990s and merit the Certified Organic label.
