Fruits that contain excess sugar and why you should consume them in moderation

It's a well-known fact that you should eat five fruits and vegetables a day to stay healthy. But some plant foods contain large amounts of sugar. When eaten in excess, they can cause blood sugar spikes.

According to healthline, here is a list of the sweetest fruits to eat in moderation:


You may not know it, but dates are known for their many benefits. It must be said that this fruit contains proteins, amino acids and vitamins. But this food is recommended for athletes and is also very sweet.

As a reminder, 100 grams of dates contain 63 grams of sugar.


In second place in this ranking is the fig. This cocktail of flavours promotes intestinal transit thanks to its high fibre content. In other words, this fruit will make you want to go to the bathroom. Like the date, the fig has a high sugar content.

As a reminder, 100 grams of fresh figs contain 14 grams of sugar. Dried, they contain 48 grams of sugar.


The king of fruits is not to be outdone! Indeed, grapes have a rather impressive sugar content. Fortunately, this food has a large number of health benefits: antioxidants, fiber, vitamin B6.

As a reminder, 100 grams of white grapes contain about 16 grams of sugar.


It's no secret that the banana is one of the sweetest fruits. Note that this food is an excellent source of potassium. In addition to this benefit, bananas are rich in minerals, fiber and antioxidants.

As a reminder, 100 grams of banana contain about 15 grams of sugar.


Prunes are a dried fruit that can be found in many dishes. Although it provides a good dose of potassium and vitamins, prunes also contain a high sugar content. For this reason, this food should not be eaten every day.
