White/green or black/red grapes: How many calories are there in fresh grapes?

There is a wide variety of different grapes, more or less sweet, sweet or sour, with quite variable caloric content. One can, however, distinguish on the one hand the white grapes (also called green grapes) slightly more acidic And on the other hand black grapes (also called red grapes), substantially sweeter.

White grapes thus provide 16.9 g of sugar and 79 calories per 100 g (1), and black grapes 20 g of carbohydrates and 90 calories for the same weight (2). Whether white or black, grapes are therefore sweeter than the average fruit, which provides 55 calories and 11 g of carbohydrates per 100 g.

Are grapes good for the diet?

As sweet as it is, grapes are a food that it would be a shame to deprive yourself of, even when on a diet. First of all, it belongs to the category of fresh fruits and vegetables, which are full of nutritional quality and must be honored in a balanced diet. And the grape is not left out, since it is particularly well provided with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, which make it a very valuable food for health. Its high water and fiber content as well as its low glycemic index (43) make it a satiating fruit and therefore interesting as part of a diet, as long as it is consumed in reasonable quantities and adapted to its own caloric needs.
The PNNS recommends the consumption of 5 servings of fresh fruit and vegetables per day, which can be divided into 3 servings of vegetables and 2 servings of fruit. The ideal is to vary your diet and therefore your food as much as possible, grapes can be perfectly integrated into a slimming dietat the rate of a portion from time to time, alternated with other less sweet fruits (watermelon, melon, peaches, apricots, strawberries …).

Are grapes diuretic?

Very rich in water and minerals, especially potassium, grapes are known for their diuretic properties. It is for this reason that this fruit is often considered a fruit detoxeffective in promoting renal elimination and draining the body.

Digestion: Do grapes make your stomach swell?

The grape is a fruit rich in water and dietary fiber, which makes it a very effective food for boost intestinal transit. If this property is an asset for people with lazy transit, it can be a disadvantage for all those who have fragile intestines and suffer from frequent bloating.
This fruit has indeed a fairly thick skin and many seeds rich in cellulosewhich can be irritating to the digestive tract, causing gas, spasms, and a bloated feeling.

Can we eat grapes in the evening?

There is no contraindication to consuming grapes in the evening in reasonable quantities, namely a small bunch of 100 to 150 g. Of course, dinner should ideally be a lighter meal, since it precedes the night during which our energy expenditure is lower. But the foods to avoid in the evening are more rich dishes, in sauce, fried foods, or ultra-processed foods and very high in added sugars and saturated fats.

Why is the grape detox cure not recommended for losing weight?

The diuretic properties of grapes and its great richness in fibers and minerals make it a very popular fruit in detox cures. We then speak of a grape monodiet, which would allow on the one hand to eliminate the toxins accumulated in our emunctory organs (liver, kidney, intestines, skin and lungs) and on the other hand to put our digestive organs at rest, to allow them to cleanse and regenerate.
The grape monodiet was notably widely popularized in 1927 in the United States by Johanna Brandt, a nurse who would have overcome her cancer thanks to this cure.

In the scientific world, the grape monodiet is however very controversial, since the capacity of the grape to reinforce the natural process of elimination of toxic waste is not based on any serious scientific data.

Grapes are also among the most treated fruits, since 87% of non-organic grapes are contaminated with pesticides in France according to a study by the DGCCRF.
Finally, on the nutritional level, any single diet is likely to cause on the one hand dietary deficiencies (absence of proteins, lipids and complex carbohydrates), and on the other hand generate significant frustrationwhich are totally counterproductive in the context of weight loss.

What about raisins?

As their name suggests, raisins are grapes that have been dried, that is to say from which the water has been largely eliminated. They provide an average of 70 g of sugars and 300 calories per 100 g, which makes them very sweet foods. However, they retain a very interesting nutritional value, with an exceptional concentration of minerals and antioxidants.
Raisins, like all dried fruits, should be limited as part of a slimming diet, but they can be an interesting snack, in small quantities, with a low-fat dairy product and oatmeal for example, or even with some oilseeds, almonds or hazelnuts.
