Calories in Dried Fruits

Written by Diet Bites

 


Dried Fruits, Rich in Sugar & Rich in Calories

How many calories are contained in dried fruits? We've got the caloric values to assist you in making the best choices for your weight loss plan posted in our handy data chart below.

It's important to know the amount of energy contained in dried fruit because they can be quite pricey in the area of calories due to the sugar content used amid the processing stage.

Therefore, although healthy, they contain more calories than their fresh counterparts.

For example, died pears contain about 112 sugar grams for one cup of halves.

The amount of calories contained in one cup is about 500.

It would be much healthier for the dieter to enjoy a medium sized pear which contains about 100 calories. When chopped into bite-sized bits the amount would equal about 1 cup of fresh fruit.

Low in Fatty Acid Content With Healthy Notes of Dietary Fiber

Dried fruits still remain a healthy food choice because when watching one's health, moderation is always the key. And they do contain good amounts of dietary fiber which can assist in satiety power. They are also low in lipid content.

Recipe Suggestions

Just a little bit of dried fruit can go a long way in recipes to boost flavors and textures. Add dried fruits to cake batter, bread dough and even fresh salads to take flavors to whole new levels.

The chart below lists calories in dried fruits as well as the sugar grams and other nutritional values.
