Which breakfast cereal contains the least amount of sugar?


It has been found that Americans consume twice the recommended amount of sugar daily, and one of those sources of sugar could be our favorite breakfast cereal. Yes! Because no matter how breakfast cereals are marketed (Whole grain! High in fiber!), no one can deny that most of these are highly processed foods, often containing a lot of added sugar.

TechInsider went on a quest to find out which of the more popular breakfast cereals contained the least sugar based on the common serving of ¾ cup. 

Among those on the list, the following had the least amount of sugar:

Waffle Crisp: 7.5 g

Apple Jacks: 7.5 g

Fruit Loops: 7.5 g

Sugar thrives in processed foods. If you can’t completely avoid them, it’s best to read closely their nutrition labels and choose those that contain the least sugar.
