Eating more fruit is one of most commonly told health tips. A few servings of berries every week could keep your mind sharp longer and improve heart health.
Strawberries, blueberries and blackberries are low in fat and calories, and contain compounds that might protect you from certain health conditions. They are all healthy sources of fiber, potassium and antioxidants.
Despite their reputation for being loaded with numbers of health benefits, some of the berries can also come with a good amount of sugar.
If you had to guess, which has more sugar in a cup? Strawberry or blueberry?
While both berries are low-calorie fruits, the strawberries are much lower in sugar than the blueberries.
A one-cup serving of blueberries contains 14 grams of sugar. The same serving of fresh whole strawberries contains 7 grams of sugar.
Blueberries and strawberries are not only delicious to eat, they are also filled with nutrients that help control hunger and ward off chronic health conditions.
Keep in mind that all fruit is great for you in moderation, just like any other food. Plus, a piece of fruit is always a better choice than a candy bar that’s packed with processed sugars and additives.
