Gummy Fruits: Calories & Nutrition Facts
Sorted by Brand
Gummy fruits are not a nutrient-dense food – most of the calories come from simple sugars (carbs) and the protein content of gummy fruits is typically fairly low. The calorie counter for each item will show you the carbohydrate, fat, and protein content of various gummy fruits.
Sugar ContentWhen evaluating the nutritional value of gummy fruits, the sugar content is a key factor to consider. Even though some gummy fruits are marketed as being “sugar free,” they likely contain artificial sweeteners as an alternative to processed sugar. Artificial sweeteners can be just as damaging to your health as can the overconsumption of processed sugar. The rule to follow with gummy fruits is to enjoy them in moderation.
Sweetened with Fruit JuiceAs an alternative to processed sugar, many gummy fruits are now being sweetened with fruit juice. This is particularly common in gummy fruits made with organic or all-natural ingredients. Fruit juice-sweetened gummy fruits still derive the majority of their calories from carbs, but those carbs come from natural sources rather than processed or artificial sweeteners.
The health benefits of gummy fruits vary greatly depending on the ingredients used to produce them. Refer to the calorie counter for your favorite gummy fruits to determine their nutritional value.
