Sugar Content in Fruits & Fruit Juices

Fruits and fruit juices contain considerable amount of sugar. The fructose present in fruits is also a simple carbohydrate but it is low GI and in the presence of fruit fiber it is not bad because the fibers slow down the digestion rate. The pure fruit juice does not contain any fibers so it may also cause rapid rise of blood sugar level. You should therefore dilute the fruit juice in water to reduce its concentration. It is better to make fruit juice at home and leave some fibers in it. However, you should choose low glycemic index fruits and and glycemic load fruits.
