There are big differences in the sugar content of fruits

At its most natural, fructose, or fruit sugar, is in the fruit. There are also big differences in the quantity and quality of fruit sugar. By far the most sugars are in grapes and bananas.

You should be careful especially with grapes, as they should easily be eaten a lot at once.

– One of my clients had replaced a 300 gram candy bag with a 500 gram grape package. Nutritionally, of course, it was a better choice, but there are also a lot of sugars in a large number of grapes, the nutritionist Hanna Partanen says.

A package of grapes corresponds to a sugar content of twelve mandarins or five pears, nectarines, apples or oranges.

That does not mean that grapes should not be eaten, but that the most important thing is to eat fruit in a variety of ways.

– There is no need to have a bad conscience about the use of refined sugar, if it is used in moderation, and the diet is otherwise good and varied, Hanna Partanen sums up.


A 350 gram bag of candy accumulates the same amount of sugar as 12 medium-sized bananas.

If you satisfy your sweet hunger with bananas, you will also get ten minerals and trace elements and eleven vitamins as well as healthy fiber at the same time.

You only get energy from a candy bag.
