A red flag—fruits and especially fruit juices!
Before we look at the carbohydrate content of most foods, let us stress that fruits and especially fruit juices can often add large doses of sugar to the human body. They do this so quickly that they threaten to overwhelm the body’s ability to handle all that sweetness, whether the person has a medical condition or not.
We are talking about fresh fruit and juice without added sweeteners here. Dried fruit, jellies, jams, fruits canned in syrup, and sweetened fruit juice concoctions just make matters worse.
It makes no difference whether the fruit or juice is organic, natural, or otherwise given a positive, “healthy” label. Fruit is sweet and fruit juice tends to concentrate that sweetness considerably.
