Many people are surprised to find out how much natural sugar is in certain fruits, especially apples. Although apples contain many nutrients that greatly benefit our well-being, it can be worth knowing how much natural sugar you’re consuming if you’re trying to cut down on sugar or reduce carbs.
In this article, we’ll help you get the exact data you need by showing you how much sugar there is in a fuji apple (depending on size), and you can also work out the sugar content for exact weights using our helpful calculator.
Fuji Apple Sugar Content
The USDA confirms that 100g of raw fuji apple (including the skin) contains 11.7g of sugar, which is equal to 0.117g per gram of apple.
The fuji apple is generally large and tends to weigh more than most other apple varieties. A medium fuji apple will weigh an average of around 192g and contains 22.5g of natural sugars.
The quick reference table below shows the amount of sugar you can expect in a small, medium or large fuji apple based on average weights.

Did You Know?
One medium fuji apple weighing 192g contains over five and a half (4g) teaspoons of sugar. However, it’s important to note that most of this is fructose, which is naturally occurring and very different from processed sugar.
Are Fuji Apples High In Sugar?
Fuji apples are higher in natural sugars than some fruits, such as berries or grapes. However, it’s important to note that this isn’t necessarily a bad thing because they contain many vitamins and minerals and are high in fiber.
This study also shows that apples can help prevent insulin spikes compared to processed and refined sugars, which have the opposite effect.
Those who are on low-carb diets tend to eat apples in moderation because of their sugar content and will generally opt for lower-sugar fruits such as strawberries or blueberries.
