(Lemons contain more sugar than strawberries) I am pretty sure that we all must have never imagined that even a lemon can contain more sugar than an over sweet strawberry. Even I felt surprised after reading this fact. Astonishing, Isn’t it?

Here are some research studies that prove that lemons contain more sugar than strawberries

A strawberry contain 40% sugar while a lemon has 30% more sugar content than the former contain, i.e. 70%. You must be wondering by now until today while consuming any of the dish containing lemon or even lemon itself,  I never felt it can even contain sugar as it always tastes sour, not sweet. Right?
This happens because of the fact that lemon has more amount of citric acid which makes it more taste like sour than a sugary one. It has approximately 3% – 6% of acid content in it. This high amount of citric acid dominates the taste of sweetness in strawberry and you savor sour taste in spite of sweet one. Rather, strawberry hardly contains any acid content.

The only explanation is that the acidic nature of lemon masks the sweetness of strawberry. Despite having more saccharine (sugar) still, it cannot be included in your desserts.

You may wonder that it may cause obesity because of more sugar content in it. But both of them are widely used for their lot of health benefits instead. The nutritive value in them outcast the sugar content in them.
