We know it’s really important to eat fruit. It’s also the healthiest way to satisfy a sweet tooth. But not all fruit is created equal. All fruit contains fructose – fruit sugar. Although natural, it is still a sugar, and with sugar comes calories. If you’re watching your weight, or are concerned about your sugar intake, you should know which fruits you are best avoiding or eating in moderation.
Topping the list of fruits with the highest amount of sugar is figs. Although they are a mega source of potassium (149mg in 65g), and a good source of vitamins B6 and K, the average fig (65g) contains 10.4g of sugar. They are very filling though and a single fig sliced up with some Greek yogurt and a drizzle of honey makes an excellent breakfast.
