There are about 14 grams of sugar in a medium-sized banana. Most of the sugar in a banana is fructose, a type of simple sugar metabolised differently than other types of sugar. The body converts fructose into glucose, which is then used for energy. Fructose does not cause spikes in blood sugar levels like different types of sugar, making it a good choice for people with diabetes. Bananas are also a good source of dietary potassium, essential for maintaining healthy blood pressure levels.
