Little-known fact: Lemons are sweeter than strawberries

When evaluating the sugar levels between a strawberry and a lemon, people would automatically assume that a strawberry contains more sugar due to its sweet taste compared to that of a lemon. But on the contrary: Studies show that a lemon contains 70 percent sugar and strawberry contains only 40 percent of sugar. The fruit has a higher percentage of sugar content; it gets its tangy taste by the dominating presence of citric acid.

The tanginess of a lemon is due to its high amount of citric acid. Although the percentage of the citric acid is a miniscule 3 to 6 percent as compared to strawberries; it still manages to dominate the saccharine levels in lemons, resulting in the sour taste. However, if we judge both fruits on their health benefits they offer rather than the amount of sugar present in them, both have great beneficial properties.
