High or Low? The Sugar in Your Favorite Fruits

Fresh fruit is a healthy way to satisfy your sweet tooth — either all on its own, as a yogurt topping, or blended to a smoothie or shake. If you're active and healthy, having too much fructose (the sugar from fruit) probably doesn't need to be a big concern of yours. However, if you're at risk for diabetes or trying to cut back on sugar in general, this handy chart will help you out.
