How Many Calories in Grapes?
Nutritional information and calorie count of grapes, fresh or canned, and raisins.
A single grape weighs from 2 to 5 grams and contains 2-3 calories depending on the size. Different types of fresh grapes—red grapes, white grapes, purple or blue grapes—have almost the same calorie count. A cup of fresh grapes (92 grams) has 62 calories. Calories in grapes come from carbohydrates as grapes are very high in sugar. As most fruits, grapes are very low in fat and protein. It may be important to you if you monitor the ratio of carbohydrates, protein and fat in your diet or follow the low-carb style of eating. Grapes contain vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium and iron. Grapes are a very good source of manganese, an essential mineral supporting the immune system.
There may be a big difference in the caloric values between a cup of European-style red and green grapes (such as Thompson seedless) and a cup of American-style slip skin (Concord) grapes. That is because the European-style grapes are smaller and more grapes fit into a 1-cup serving. One cup of the European-style red or green grapes (151 g) provides 104 calories, 0 g fat, 1 g protein, 27 g carbohydrate and only 1 g dietary fiber. A 1-cup serving of the larger American-type slip-skin red grapes (92 g) provides 62 calories, 0 g fat, 1 g protein, 16 g carbohydrate and 1 g dietary fiber. Though delicious, thirst-quenching and very sweet, grapes are low in fiber for a fresh fruit.
Canned grapes packed in water have the same calorie count as fresh grapes. However, if canned grapes are packed in syrup, they have twice the calories due to added sweeteners.
Dried grapes, raisins, are much higher in calories and sugar than grapes, fresh or canned. Raisins have from 67 percent to 72 percent sugar by weight. A cup of raisins (145 grams) has about 434 calories. Both raisins and grapes are good sources of antioxidants.
