      1. Your packaging does not include Nutritional Information as is required in the USA. I have a 1 lb bag that has approximately 15 guavas in it. What is the caloric value of 1 piece of fruit and how many grams of sugar in each small guava? I am diabetic and have to track calories and sugar. Love your guavas! Thank you!
