Nutritional Information

All green plants, such as fruits and vegetables, produce sugar (sucrose) through photosynthesis, a natural process that turns sunlight into energy.  Whether your body gets sucrose from fruit, vegetables, honey, maple syrup, or table sugar, each gram of sucrose is used in the same way by the body, supplying 4 calories of energy per gram.
