Poor old fruit cops a beating at times and while it is a source of the natural sugar fructose, it is also a nutrient rich food packed full of vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre.

So if you love nothing more than to grab a piece of fruit to munch on throughout the day, here are your favourite fruits ranked highest to lowest in overall sugar content.

It is though extremely important to know that unlike added sugar or sucrose, fructose is naturally occurring and when it comes to the overall sugar content in our diet, ideally the more natural sugar we consume, as opposed to added sugars the better.

And for the average person, enjoying 2-3 pieces of fresh fruit a day, and the natural sugars it contains it no cause for concern from an overall sugar perspective.
