The nectarine just have calories, only about 55 kcal per 100 grams, is basically sugar, water and amount of fiber, vitamins and minerals, something like a sports drink that is chewed. It has a great advantage over the peach, and is that not having hair on the skin can be eaten with it, giving us an extra intake of fiber, which is always good to regulate gastrointestinal transit.
