Vitamin D and magnesium-calcium carbonate nanoparticles were used to fortify a newly developed healthy chocolate spread formulated with inulin and maltitol as sugar replacers and alternative to palm oil to reduce the concentration of saturated fatty acid. These samples were compared with well-known commercially available chocolate spreads in terms of rheology, polyphenols content and in vitro digestion, sensory attributes and willingness to buy. The fortified chocolate spreads showed comparable if not better acceptability than the current products on the market and over 80% of the participants were inclined to buy and 66% prepared to spend 10 to 15% more money on the product enriched with the three micronutrients. The results also demonstrate that the incorporation of nanoparticles could affect the rheological and physio-chemical properties of the formulations and an appropriate ratio between the fat phase and particles seems an important factor to consider.
