Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk Review – Analyzing ingredients and nutritional value
Amount of sugar
The main problem with Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk is the high amount of sugar content present in it. Generally, the first ingredient mentioned on the packaging of a food product is the ingredient that is present in higher amounts in the product. Sugar is the first ingredient mentioned on the packaging. The small 55g pack of Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk contains about 50% sugar which is considered extremely high. We all know how overconsumption of foods rich in sugar content over a long period of time can damage our health in the near future.
Another major problem of Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk is its high-fat content. One bar of Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk contains about 30% fat, which is again high. 100g of Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk contains about 30.3g of fat, out of which 16.9g is saturated fat. Eating foods that are extensively rich in saturated fat can lead to heart diseases and strokes as it raises the bad LDL cholesterol in your blood.
So it is always recommended to consume Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk according to the recommended serving mentioned on the packaging.
Compared to other chocolate bars, available in the Indian markets, Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk may seem a bit costlier. The 150g bar of Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk costs you around Rs 160 whereas the small 55g pack costs you around Rs 80. So it lies slightly on the expensive side. But yes, since it’s the most trusted Cadbury brand in India, the price tag doesn’t matter among their loyal consumers.
The amount of actual cocoa used in making this chocolate bar lies around the 5-9% margin. It is indeed very less, but unlike other chocolate bars on the market, they actually use cocoa solids. The amount could have been improved though but yes something is better than nothing. So, if you are thinking that this chocolate bar is actually full of cocoa then you are entirely mistaken. The cocoa solids used in making this chocolate bar are made from natural cocoa and have no side effects attached to them.
This is the best part of Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk and in fact, the reason why I always personally support Dairy milk. Cadbury Dairy milk always tends to ignore adding harmful preservatives in their recipe. Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk is actually free from any harmful preservatives that can cause harmful effects on your health.
Emulsifiers 442 and 476 are both marked safe by the FSSAI and the FDA. Several studies have further shown that these emulsifiers possess no harmful effects and are solely used in a food product to improve the texture as well as the shelf life of the food product.
The actual serving size
Well, whenever we buy a pack of Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk (be it the small 55g pack or the 150g pack), we tend to consume it entirely. Yes, the chocolaty taste is irresistible in nature. But the actual recommended serving size is different. The actual daily recommended serving of Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk is 2 squares. For example, if you are buying the 55g pack of Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk, it consists of 12 squares. You should not consume more than 2 squares according to the recommended serving. If you consume the chocolate bar according to the serving size mentioned, there won’t be any problems. But that is the question. The taste is so perfect that many can’t resist it.
Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk – Final review
There is nothing bad present in Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk that you can’t consume occasionally. In fact, it is free from any harmful preservatives, which is a great plus point. The problem is the high sugar content and high saturated fat content. But yes, you can never expect a bar of chocolate to be free from sugar. It’s a big no for diabetic patients as it is extensively rich in sugar. Also, people with heart problems should consult their respective doctors before consuming Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk.
