Can I rinse the syrup off regular canned fruit? I’m a diabetic and the dietetic canned fruit is so expensive?
No, I would not recommend you rinse the syrup off the regular canned fruit. When a fruit is canned in syrup, the fruit absorbs sugar because the sugar concentration in the syrup is usually greater than the sugar concentration in the fruit. Rinsing the fruit will not remove any sugar that has been absorbed into the fruit. Look for ingredients on the
food label like sugar, corn syrup solids, fructose, high fructose corn syrup, sucrose, dextrose, lactose, dextrin, honey, molasses, sorghum or invert sugar. Ingredients are listed in order of decreasing proportion. The ingredient listed first is the largest amount in that food.

You don’t have to buy dietetic canned fruit because now you can buy juice packed, canned fruit. Dietetic canned fruit usually has no sugar added and canned in water, but you should read the ingredient label. Instead, I would recommend that you buy the fruit canned in fruit juice. Usually, a combination of pineapple, apple, pear or white grape juice is used. The cost of juice pack fruit is usually the same as syrup pack fruit.
