Just one cup of this electric green fruit provides more potassium than the same amount of sliced bananas — with less sugar and calories. They may taste sweet, but there’s no worrying about cavities when it comes to kiwi, with just 7 grams of sugar in one medium fruit they have almost three times less sugar than one apple. One cup of the fruit also contains 5 grams of fiber (the green part has soluble fiber, while the seeds and skin offer the insoluble kind), or about 21% of your daily recommended intake, to help promote feelings of fullness.
