Depends: My concern about the nutrition label is that it does not indicate the glycemic index (how quickly something you eat turns into sugar). 100gram is high but lots of fruit without the veggies is also not optimal. Try to always eat low glycemic (more veggies, berries, apples, citrus fruits, and stone fruits ) as well as whole grain.
