Krispy Kreme launches whole wheat doughnut

Krispy Kreme, the famous American doughnut maker, is jumping on the whole grain bandwagon. The company, with stores in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec, has just launched its first whole wheat doughnut - complete with Krispy Kreme's Original Glaze. 

The new Whole Wheat Glazed doughnut might sound healthier than a regular doughnut, but don't be fooled.   Switching to whole wheat flour only adds an additional one gram of fibre to each doughnut. And the new doughnut is still laden with artey clogging trans fat (3.5 grams per doughnut!!). With 11 grams of fat and 10 grams of sugar (2.5 teaspoons worth), Krispy Kreme's Whole Wheat Glazed is no health food!

Here's how the Krispy Kreme Whole Wheat Glazed doughnut compares to the Original Glazed doughnut.
