Top 10 Fruits Lowest in Sugar

Fruits are high in vitamins, minerals, fiber, water, and probably several other great nutrients yet unknown to nutrition. For people wanting all those great benefits while minimizing their sugar intake, below is a list of the top 10 fruits lowest in sugar.

Low sugar fruits include olives, avocados, starfruit, cranberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, currants, Asian pears, and casaba melon. The list below gives the grams of sugar per serving, and the number of teaspoons of sugar per serving. 1 tsp is equal to 4 grams of sugar.

While olives and avocados are high in heart-healthy fats, they are also high in calories, so are best eaten in moderation. Cranberries are typically consumed with added sugar, so read product nutrition facts and ingredients to be sure there is no added sugar.
