From pineapple to dry grapes, the five richest carbohydrate fruits

In addition to vitamins, minerals, fibers and antioxidants, fruits also contain sugar (fructose), which is a simple carbohydrate, so it is not appropriate to abuse (but not limit it too much).

A healthy and balanced diet should provide the right amount of fruit that provides the body with nutrients (vitamins, minerals, and fibers) needed without forgetting polyphenols, whose anticancer function has been scientifically proven by many studies. However, it is also good to note that fruits contain sugar (fructose), which naturally increases the carbohydrate content.

"I had a lot of people who consume a lot of fruit, convinced that it was not an important thing because it was just about fruit," explains dietist Bonnie Taub-Dix, author of 'Read It Before You Eat It' in fact, fruits are also counted, especially if you are diabetic or you need to keep control of your blood sugar levels. "

Of course, this does not mean that the carbohydrate-rich fruits, like the beverages we will present below, should be removed from the diet: instead, they can become an excellent pre-physical repository because they help you to remain saturated, as well as a sweet (all natural) concession to be consumed during the day.


Who would think that one of the foods that is often recommended in diets contained 13 grams of carbohydrate (10 of which derived from sugar) per 100 grams of the product? But to balance the bill, consider the other nutritional benefits offered by this tropical fruit, such as 131% of vitamin C and 76% of manganese daily, without forgetting that total calorie intake remains only 50 calories per hectogram.


With 23 grams of carbohydrates per hectogram, bananas is, rightly, one of the first fruits to come to mind when someone thinks of a high-carbohydrate food. But before demonizing this true energy concentration (provides 89 calories per 100 grams), it's good to remember that it is also an excellent source of fiber (beneficial to heart health), as well as vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B6 and, above all, potassium.


Many tropical fruits tend to have a sugar content and consequently higher carbohydrates and mango is no exception, as 100 grams of this fruit contain up to 15 grams of carbohydrate. Fortunately, however, there are other good reasons to avoid mangoes from our table: it's really a good source of vitamin C (provides 76% of the recommended daily requirement), vitamin A (25% ) and vitamin B6 (11% all in only 60 calories per hectogram.


Strangely, but true, an average apple (about 7 inches in diameter) contains up to 25 grams of carbohydrate, which is partly due to the fact that it is also rich in fiber. But among the undoubted benefits derived from the consumption of this fruit (which contributes 52 calories per hectogram), antioxidants (including vitamin C, which help to ensure an active and effective immune system) and minerals (such as potassium and magnesium).

Dry grapes

Dried fruits have a high content of carbohydrates and dry grapes is a fine example because it has a good weight of 79 grams per hectogram. Although the power supply is very insignificant, as it provides something like 299 calories per 100 grams and limiting itself to this would be reductive because dry grapes are also a good source of fiber (which can help keep of blood sugar levels under control) and minerals (like iron, magnesium and, above all, potassium).
