I compared Special K original cereal to Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Both cereals contain around 25g of total carbohydrates. Of these total carbs Cinnamon Toast Crunch contains 9g of sugar while the special K contains 4g of sugar. Cinnamon Toast Crunch contains several added sugars including fructose. According to Harvard Health, higher intake of fructose is associated with obesity, heart disease and diabetes. This may be due to the fact that only the liver cells can break down fructose while any cell in the body can break down glucose. Although the Cinnamon Toast Crunch is whole grain and the special K is not, the Cinnamon Toast Crunch only offers and additional 1.5g of fat and 1g of fiber compared to Special K. Both cereals have roughly the same DV of vitamins and minerals and have been fortified, the addition of nutrients vitamins and minerals. Due to the fortification the whole grains in the Cinnamon Toast Crunch adds little to no additional nutrition benefits compared to special K. Although I do not eat cereal anymore if I had to decide between these two cereals today I would pick the Special K due to the lower sugar content (even at a larger serving size) and the exclusion of added sugars.
