Top 10 Fruits Lowest in Sugar

Fruits are high in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and water. They also contain many different antioxidants, such as anthocyanins, flavonols, and procyanidins, and may also contain other compounds that have health benefits that aren't yet known to science. (1) However, most fruits also contain sugar, sometimes at relatively high levels.
