Hi - can anyone suggest where I can find this information on the web ? I've had a look but can't find anything helpful.... Thanks.

Dried fruits in general, especially those with added sugar or soaked in syrup.
Fresh fruits: sucrose is naturally occuring in grapes, but not at high % in all varieties.
Are you worried about teeth? Blood sugar levels, what?

Don't know about where on the web - but off the top of my head fruits like Bananas, dates, raisins etc. have high levels of fruit sugars - thats why they make great muffins without needing to add processed sugarwink - HTH

Sorry - I should have been more specific. I was thinking melon and grapes. I eat probably a third of a melon with a generous handful of red grapes every day. I think I have a fungal infection (just posted about that) and was wondering if the sugar in the fruit I eat was making it worse...

This seems fairly definitive.
