Nutella confirmed the change to its chocolate and hazelnut spread – sparking a backlash on social media.

Ferret, the company behind the brand, said it tweaked the formula following a report by a german consumer group, taking out some of its chocolate content.

The Hamburg Consumer Protection centre note the firm now uses 9.7% powdered skimmed milk instead of 7.5% that was used previously.

It was also announced that sugar, which already made up to half of the recipe, was being increased from 55.9% to 56.3%.

Fans of the nutty chocolate spread hit out at the group for making the change.

Marina Daydreamer said: “#Ferrero changed the recipe for #nutella (at least in #germany) more sugar, less fat and probably less cocoa. Is it April 1st again?”

Another social media user tweeted: “Just heared that #Nutella changed their recipe. I mean come on there are things in life you CANT do! And this is one of this things! #sweets.”

Felien S. Geldhof‏ added: “They have apparantly been making some changes to the Nutella recipe. #DontMessWithNutella #Nutella [sic].”

In a statement the Italian firm said: “The quality and all the other characteristics of Nutella remain the same.

“As the colour of the new Nutella is lighter, we are working on the assumption that skimmed milk powder was added at the expense of cacao.”
