Carb Counts for Fruits

Originally Published: by: Views: 9,417

Fruits are an interesting one, berries for instance are often touted as low carb fruits but as you can see below, most are not. Infact some stone fruits which are thought to be high carb are a touch lower then "low carb" berries such as raspberries and blackberries and a lot lower then blueberries!

Now fresh cranberries are a low carb fruit, I have not been able to include the count because I cannot find Australian information on them only American which isn't accurate. Unsweetened dried cranberries are also low carb but every one that I have come across has sugar or fruit juice added. Out of these, there's only one I have found, that's not ridiculously high and that's the brand Our Organics.
