carborhydrates in canned fruit-what percentage is the fruit and what percentage is the juice in the can? If you do not eat the juice will that cut rating of carbohydrates in half?…cvb

Almost. Typically a fill ratio is about 60% fruit and 40% juice/syrup. If you don’t drink the juice/syrup then you can subtract about 40% of the carbohydrates. For example, in a 60-calorie cup, with 15 grams of carbohydrate, 6 grams of carbohydrate (or 24 calories) would be lost with draining, leaving 9 carbs or 36 calories of fruit.
