Its 18 grams per 1 cup serving is twice as much as you find in Froot Loops and Lucky Charms.

However, a lot of that sugar comes from the raisins. Dried fruit is very high in sugar, but your body handles it better than, say, sugar from Skittles.

If you're judging on pure sugar content, Raisin Bran might look like the worst cereal on this list.

Its 18 grams per 1 cup serving is twice as much as you find in Froot Loops and Lucky Charms.

However, a lot of that sugar comes from the raisins. Dried fruit is very high in sugar, but your body handles it better than, say, sugar from Skittles.

This is because dried fruit is high in fiber, which helps your body absorb sugar slowly, and contains other vitamins and antioxidants.

Raisin Bran is also high in whole grains at 27 grams per serving.

The whole grain and dried fruit combo is a big reason why Raisin Bran contains 28% of your daily value of fiber and nearly 5 grams of protein per serving.

True, the sugar content looks high at first glance, but other nutrients in Raisin Bran make up for it.
