Carbs in Quince

Quince is 83.8% water and 16.2% nutrients, primarily carbs. One hundred grams of quince contains 15.3g of carbs, which covers 5% of the daily need (in the case of a 2000-calorie diet).

Carbs per serving size

The average serving size of quince is one fruit (~92g), containing 14.1g of carbs.

Carbohydrate Type Breakdown

As previously mentioned, 100g of quince contains 15.3g of carbs, 13.4g of net carbs, and 1.9g of dietary fiber. 

Consequently, one fruit without refuse (serving size 92g) contains 14.1g of carbs and 1.7g of dietary fiber.

Quince net carbs

Quince is not particularly low in net carbs: 13.4g per 100g; therefore, it is preferred to avoid it during low-carb diets.

Soluble and insoluble fiber

Quince is a great source of pectin, a soluble dietary fiber used in the jam industry (1). However, the percentage of overall soluble dietary fiber in quince is not calculated yet.

Health checks

Low in Cholesterol
 ⓘ Dietary cholesterol is not associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease in healthy individuals. However, dietary cholesterol is common in foods that are high in harmful saturated fats.
No Trans Fats
 ⓘ Trans fat consumption increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and mortality by negatively affecting blood lipid levels.
Low in Saturated Fats
 ⓘ Saturated fat intake can raise total cholesterol and LDL (low-density lipoprotein) levels, leading to an increased risk of atherosclerosis. Dietary guidelines recommend limiting saturated fats to under 10% of calories a day.
Low in Sodium
 ⓘ Increased sodium consumption leads to elevated blood pressure.
Low in Sugars
 ⓘ While the consumption of moderate amounts of added sugars is not detrimental to health, an excessive intake can increase the risk of obesity, and therefore, diabetes.
