A powdered Dunkin' Donuts doughnut contains 13 grams of sugar (more than 2.5 teaspoons).
Is that a lot?
Sugar should be only 5% of your daily calorie intake, according to the World Health Organization. For a healthy adult, that comes out to about 25 grams of sugar. So the doughnut would be more than half of your daily intake.
People looking for a less sugary breakfast than a doughnut may turn to cereal. But beware: Many healthy-looking cereals have more sugar in 1 cup than that doughnut.
Don't shoot the messenger, k?
