Donuts are not particularly healthy because of their high sugar and fat content. Eating things rich in simple sugars, such as donuts, can make your blood sugar levels rise and your body store more calories as fat. The Berliners, smaller, can be a better option if you eat only one or two, and this will allow you to taste some different flavors without exceeding in the consumption of calories.
Fans of donuts should know that each Berliner contains 59 calories, 3. 3 g of fat and 2. 3 g of sugars. A yeast donut and glaze is not much better, it has 55 calories, 3 g of fat and 3 g of sugar. The berlinesas dipped in chocolate have a similar content of calories, but the ones filled with sweet have a little more.
Importance of serving
Although a Berliner is not so bad, eating four equals a regular donut. A medium berlin, 3 1/4 inches, has 226 calories, 12. 7 g of fat and 8. 8 g of sugar. You will be consuming 20% of the daily value of fat and 19% of the daily value of saturated fat, which is the type of fat that increases cholesterol and the risk of heart disease. This portion also contains around 35% of the recommended daily intake of sugar by the American Heart Association for women and 23% of the recommended limit for men.
