How Much Sugar Is In
A Mango?
While mangos are good for you, each one contains almost 46 grams of sugar. That's a lot of sweetness, but there's no need to drop this fruit from your grocery list, as they are also packed with over five grams of fiber, which will help keep your blood sugar levels stable while eating.
Mangos contain a little bit of protein, and they are also a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, and other antioxidants — all of which help keep your immune system strong. A ripe mango will be slightly soft to the touch, will have a deep yellow color with orange or red patches, and will have a sweet fragrance.
You want to avoid mangos that are hard, green, or have brown spots. While mangos and many other fruits are high in sugar, you simply need to enjoy them in moderation, just like all foods.
