26 Low Sugar Fruits That Will Give Your Healthy Lifestyle a Boost
Do you have health issues that cause you to be aware of how much sugar you intake? Maybe you have a family history of diabetes or other illnesses that require that your sugar intake is watched?
If so, I know it can be difficult to know which foods you should eat and which you shouldn’t. For instance, we all know that fruit is healthy, but they also can pack a lot of natural sugars with them which can be an issue with those that suffer from high blood sugar.
Or if you are someone like me that watches your carbohydrate and sugar intake, then it is important to know what you should and shouldn’t be eating.
So that is why I’m bringing you a list of low sugar fruits. That way you will know which fruits are actually known for their low sugar content, and you will no longer have to guess.
Hopefully, this will help you to maintain a regular blood sugar level and all around better health.
What is a Low Sugar Fruit?
Before I begin listing all of the fruits that are low in sugar, you need to understand a little more about what qualifies these fruits for the list.
First, a low sugar fruit should have only 5-11 grams of sugar per serving.
Second, remember that serving size makes all the difference. Watermelon is a prime example of this. Most people eat a slice of watermelon which contains more than 11 grams of sugar.
But if you really love watermelon, then you’ll need to cut down on the serving size to keep it in the lower sugar category.
Finally, there are some fruits that are on the fence. I wanted to mention them first so you know to automatically watch serving size when eating them. Watermelon is obviously one as I’ve already mentioned.
However, cherries and grapes are also sitting on the fence. They contain too much sugar for a normal serving size to make the list officially. But if you really want them (as I do because I love cherries!) just know to cut back on the amount you eat.
Now, let’s move on to the fruits that made the list of low-sugar fruits at their regular serving size. (If you aren’t sure about serving sizes, here is a great resource to help you with that.)
