Despite how sweet a peach can be, it is a low-calorie fruit that is low glycemic, so it won’t cause sudden change in blood sugar. A single peach has 38 calories, fewer than apples or pears. It contains ten percent of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C, and it also has two grams of fiber. Peaches are filling because they contain 87 percent water, making it a perfect snack between meals and a great hydrating fruit. Peaches also contain flavonoids in their skins, which research suggests may prevent cancer and heart disease.
