An apple might sound like a healthy snack, and it certainly is when you consider the nutrient and fiber content, but if this is something you’re tracking for a low-carbohydrate diet, apples can contain more carbs than you might think.
Each variety has a different carb content, which varies depending on color. The Fuji apple is predominately red and has a higher carb content than a green apple.
In this article, we’ll help you find the exact carb content you need for any size or weight of Fuji apple using our quick reference charts and carb calculator.
Fuji Apple Carb Content
The USDA confirms that 100g of raw fuji apple (including the skin) contains a total of 15.2g of carbs, which is equal to 0.152g per gram of apple.
The fuji apple is a larger variety and typically weighs more than most other apple varieties. A medium fuji apple will weigh an average of around 192g and contains 29.2g of total carbs.
The quick reference table below shows the number of total carbs and net carbs you can expect in a small, medium, or large fuji apple based on average apple weights.
|Fuji Apple Size & Weight||Total Carbs||Net Carbs|
|Per 100g of Fuji apple||15.2g||13.1g|
|Small apple (average 158g)||24g||20.7g|
|Medium apple (average 192g)||29.2g||25.2g|
|Large apple (average 236g)||35.9g||30.9g|
The reason why apples are higher in carbs than some other fruits is because of the sugar content. In this example, an average-sized medium Fuji apple contains 22.5g of natural sugars.
The table below shows the amount of natural sugar in various-sized Fuji apples and the fiber content that is used to work out the net carbs.
|Fuji Apple Size & Weight||Total Sugar||Fiber|
|Per 100g of fuji apple||11.7g||2.1g|
|Small (average 158g)||18.5g||3.3g|
|Medium (average 192g)||22.5g||4g|
|Large (average 236g)||27.6g||5g|
Please note – the data in these tables is based on average weights, and the weight of each apple will vary. For the most accurate data, use the actual weight (excluding the core) and input it into the calculator below.

Did You Know?
100g of fuji apple contains nearly three times the amount of carbs than 100g of fresh strawberries. Opting for berries over apples can significantly reduce your daily carb allowance.
Are Fuji Apples High In Carbs?
Apples are a higher-carb fruit in general and are often avoided by those who’re following a low-carb diet; however, some apples contain more carbs than others.
An average medium-sized fuji apple contains 25.2g of net carbs, so in the example where someone is trying to stay under 50g of net carbs per day, one medium Fuji apple would come at a cost of half their daily allowance.
Fuji apples are a higher-carb apple when compared to green apples, which are slightly lower due to the fact they contain less sugar. So if you’re following a low-carb diet and you can’t live without apples, opt for a small green apple over large a Fuji.
For those not tracking carbs, it’s important to note that apples are a healthy snack packed with nutrients that can be incorporated into a healthy diet.
We hope you’ve found the answer you were looking for on this page; here’s a quick rundown of the key points:
- For those on a low-carb diet, a Fuji apple would be considered fairly high in carbs at over 25.2g of net carbs per medium apple.
- A Fuji apple is one of the highest-carb apples because it contains more natural sugars than most.
- If you’re on a low-carb diet and you can’t live without apples, opt for a small green apple (such as a golden delicious) instead.
