6 Fruits That Are Highest In Sugar

Fruit is necessary for a healthy diet.

For a healthy person fruit is fine to include but for someone with diabetes or fatty liver, higher sugar fruits are best excluded due to the higher carbs, sugar and fructose.


You may want to watch how much you eat of the following fruits:


#Pineapple Sugar per Cup: 16.3g / Sugar per 100g: 9.9g
One cup of pineapple chunks has about 16 grams of sugar, which isn't the worst on this list.

#Grapes Sugar per Cup: 15g / Sugar per 100g: 16g
Grapes have 23 grams of sugar per 1.5 cup serving. A good substitute is to snack on a cup of blackberries, which has a comparatively paltry 7 grams of sugar, and also obesity-fighting benefits.

#Bananas Sugar per Cup: 18g / Sugar per 100g: 12g
Bananas are conveniently self-packaged, portable and creamy, which is why they're such a popular go-to fruit and the world's fourth-ranked food crop in sales. While bananas are naturally low in saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium, the average one features about 27.5 grams of sugar (51.4 grams of total carbohydrates)!

#Mangoes Sugar per Cup: 23g / Sugar per 100g: 13.9g
These tropical beauties pack about 23 grams of sugar per serving (1 cup)!
Papaya, which has only 8.3 grams of sugar for the same serving size.
Swap mangoes with a serving of papaya to decrease your sugar, increase fiber, and add a healthy serving of probiotic enzymes naturally found in papaya.

#Cherries Sugar per Cup: 19.7g / Sugar per 100g: 12.8g
In fact, cherries are known to decrease oxidative stress in the body, as well as inflammation. However, 1 cup of the sweet treats packs 19.7 grams of sugar.
If you need the anti-inflammatory benefits in a less sweet form, pick up some strawberries, instead. They have far less natural sugar in a 1 cup serving (just 7.4 grams).

#Pears Sugar per Cup: 16g / Sugar per 100g: 10g
Pears are one of the fruits with the highest fructose concentration. (A medium pear has 16 grams of sugar.)

They have so much fructose that it can often become impossible for our bodies to absorb it all, causing stomach digestion issues.


Apples have been shown to regulate blood sugar.

Guava is rich in soluble fiber, which helps keep nasty blood sugar spikes at bay.
