Pears are another fruit rich in fibre, with about 5.5 grams of fibre in a medium-sized fruit (about 178 grams). That is 22% of the recommended daily fibre intake.
Alongside the fibre benefits, pears are unusually high in fructose and sorbitol, compared to other fruits.
You can include pears in your diet in a wide variety of ways. Eat them raw or cooked, with cheese or add them in salads, savoury dishes and baked goods.
