Calories In A Pear


Calories in a pear

A half cup (83 grams) of sliced pears has 50 calories in it, according to the CDC.

That serving size has 8 grams of sugars (fructose, glucose, and Levulose) in a total of 13 grams of carbohydrates.

As with almost all fruits, there is no fat, cholesterol, protein, or sodium, and it does have 3 grams of fiber.

A medium pear may have over 200 milligrams of potassium and 7 mgs. of Vitamin C, or up to 10% of Daily Value.

Varieties of pears

Choosing a ripe pear by color depends on the variety.

An Anjou may be either green or red, Bartletts may be red or yellow.

There are also Bosc, Comice, and the dessert pears, the Seckel.

In general, a pear will still be hard when ripe, although there will be a slight give near the stem.

You should avoid ones with obvious bruising or cuts.

Eating pears

Pears are eaten raw and in salads, either grated or sliced. The slices are firm so they are a good accompaniment for a cheese tray.

They bake well, either cut in half or arranged attractively in slices for a large tart pastry.

Because they hold their shape well, creative chefs will use them for elegant dessert preparations, poaching them in wine and serving with different flavored sauces like chocolate, vanilla, spices, or tropical flavors.

From China over 3000 years ago

Pear trees were carried from China through the Middle East and Mediterranean to the rest of the world.

It is related to the apple and the quince.
