If there is one thing nutritionists agree upon, it is that consumption of sugar should be kept to a limit. Since fruits are high in water, fiber, and vitamins, they are much better than other high sugar foods. Even so, a person looking to lose weight, or cut back on sugar and carbs, would do well to limit the number of high sugar fruits they eat.
Fruits high in sugar include litchis, passion-fruit, pomegranates, mangos, cherries, oranges, kiwifruit, grapes, guavas, and bananas. In the listing, both the grams of sugar and teaspoons of sugar per serving of each fruit are given. A packed teaspoon of granulated sugar is equal to 4 grams.
