Do Mangoes Have a Lot of Sugar? Mango Nutritional Facts!
There’s nothing like the taste of fresh mango! Mangoes are delicious when eaten fresh out of hand on a hot summer’s day and add a tropical zing to smoothies and main dishes – as well as a big nutritional kick. But are they a good choice for those trying to limit their sugar intake?
A single mango contains around 45 grams of sugar. That’s a lot, but keep in mind that not all sugars are created equal. Unlike processed sugars like that found in commercially processed foods, natural sugars such as those found in fruits take longer for the body to process. Additionally, many fruits are high in fiber (mangos have more than five grams), which helps regulate blood sugar levels to keep it from spiking.
Eaten in moderation, the health benefits of eating Florida mangoes and other fruits far outweigh their sugar content. Read on:
