Yes, but the syrup is generally very high in sugar.

Canned fruits and fruit cups are a convenient way to enjoy fruit when fresh is not available or not practical, but heavy and light syrups are just "simple syrups" of water combined with sugar or other sweeteners. Forego the fruit packed in syrups for fruit packed in its own unsweetened juice for the most nutrient per calorie content, and stay away from the artificially sweetened products and enjoy the natural sweetness of the fruit.
