These fruits pack massive amounts of sugar!

Since there’s generally no nutrition label on fresh produce, it is good to know which fruits have a higher sugar content than the rest.

They’re whole, they’re tasty, they’re loaded with nutrients and they will add a burst of colour to your life. Yes, we all know that fruits are one of the most popular health foods. Some people even call them ‘nature’s fast food’ because most fruits are fairly easy to carry and consume.

But apart from fibre, minerals and other micro-nutrients, fruits are also quite high in sugar. Since there’s generally no nutrition label on fresh produce, here’s a list of some fruits that have a much higher sugar content than the rest, as per US Department of Agriculture’s records.

LITCHI

A great source of vitamin C, B-complex and phytonutrients, litchis pack about 29 grams of sugar per cup. But they also give you around 136 milligrams of calcium so eat your litchis but in moderation.

PASSION FRUIT

Summer special passion fruit is tart and full of gelatinous pulpy goodness. The sugar content of the fruits stands at 26 grams per cup. The tropical fruit is also rich in vitamin C, beta carotene and other antioxidants.

POMEGRANATE

Notoriously hard to peal, pomegranates have impressive anti-inflammatory properties and help maintain your immune defences. At 24 grams of sugar per cup of pomegranate seeds, this is also a sugar-heavy fruit.

MANGO

The king of summer fruits, mangoes are pretty high in sugar at 24 grams per cup. It is hard to resist this delicious fruit and we don’t recommend you do. Mangoes are a cracking source of vitamin A, C, K and potassium.

CHERRY

Popping some bright, plump, fresh cherries into your mouth feels basically like eating candy. Not surprisingly, cherries pack about 20 grams of sugar per cup but they also help you sleep better as they are one of the only fruits to contain melatonin.

While the sugar in fruits is not the same as your table sugar or even standard sweeteners like honey or agave, it can still be an important thing to keep in mind, especially if you’re diabetic or dealing with other health issues.
