Is the sugar in fruit safe to eat?

 

Q. Is the sugar in fruit safe?

 

A. It is a common misconception that the sugar in fruits is “bad”. While fruit does contain sugar, it is a naturally occurring sugar and is accompanied by other nutritious components found in the fruit. Make sure to eat a variety of fruits in any form—fresh, frozen, canned, dried, and 100% juice throughout the day.
