Compared to most other soft fruits, mangos are relatively high in carbohydrates, but when compared to other high carb foods such as brown rice and oats, they’re a relatively low carb food.
Much of the carbohydrate content of mangos comes from their fibre, the rest from their sugar content. Because they’re so sweet, they do contain fairly high levels of sugar, so if you’re watching your sugar intake, keep mangos as a treat.
That said, mangos are super rich in vitamin A which looks after the health of our eyes and vision, and vitamin C which plays an important role in our immune system and the health of our skin and blood vessels. So if you’re after a juicy vitamin hit, mangos are it!
One cup of peeled, chopped mangoes contains around 25g of carbohydrates and mangos are also rich in fibre and vitamins A and C.
