This Fruit Has More Sugar Than A Glazed Doughnut--What Is It?

November 25, 2016 by SheFinds

Fruit is a source of important vitamins and nutrients such as vitamins A, B, and C as well as potassium, fiber, and antioxidants. So it’s no surprise we reach for the fruit plate come dessert time when we’re trying to be healthy. However, what most of us forget is just how much sugar is in certain fruits.

Nutritionist Stephanie Middleberg MS, RD, CND, explains to Well + Good that “I’m definitely pro-fruit, but it is possible to over-consume it.” So, to prevent this from happening, they created the fruit pyramid, which ranks fruit by its sugar levels (yes, just like that old school food pyramid you learned about in school).

So, which produce is at the top of the pyramid? That would be mangoes, which have 26 grams of sugar per cup! According to Who What Wear, that is just as much sugar as two glazed doughnuts. Yikes. If you’re looking to limit your sugar intake with fruit, avocados are your best bet with just a little over 1 gram of sugar per cup. Next up is berries with 5-13 grams per cup followed by apples, pears, grapefruit, oranges and bananas with 14-19 grams.
