have just discovered dried pineapple which is delicious... its unsweetened, but does the drying process take away any of the nutritional value?

yup, packet says 48g of 100g is sugar which is what worried me slightly! so i may as well eat a packet of minstrels instead and have some fresh pineapple

yes it counts but it only counts once regardless of how much of it you eat (same as fruit juice)
