Fruit List


Fresh, frozen, canned, and dried fruits and fruit
juices are on this list. In general, one fruit exchange is:
  • 1 small to medium fresh fruit,
  • 1/2 cup of canned or fresh fruit or fruit juice,
  • 1/4 cup of dried fruit.


Nutrition Tips
  1. Fresh, frozen, and dried fruits have about 2
    grams of fiber per choice, Fruit
    juices contain very little fiber.
  2. Citrus fruits, berries, and melons are good
    sources of vitamin C.
Selection Tips
  1. Count 1/2 cup cranberries or rhubarb sweetened
    with sugar substitutes as free foods.
  2. Read the Nutrition Facts on the food label. If one serving
    has more than 15 grams of carbohydrate, you will need to
    adjust the size of the serving you eat or drink.
  3. Portion sizes for canned fruits are for the fruit and a small
    amount of juice.
  4. Whole fruit is more filling than fruit juice and may be a better choice.
  5. Food labels for fruits may contain the words
    "no sugar added" or "unsweetened." This means that no
    sucrose (table sugar) has been added.
  6. Generally, fruit canned in extra light syrup has the
    same amount of carbohydrate per serving as the
    "no sugar added" or the juice pack.
    All canned fruits on the fruit list are based on
    one of these three types of pack.
