Best Fruits to Eat on a Low-Glycemic Diet - Extend Nutrition

The glycemic index (GI) is a way to measure how much a carbohydrate will affect blood sugar, on a scale of 0 - 100. The higher the number, the more quickly a food is digested, and the higher the immediate spike in blood sugar

Common fruit GI values are:

Low GI: 55 and below
Medium GI: 56 - 69
High: 70+

Low GI scores (55 and lower) mean the food digests slowly and produces only gradual/minimal elevations in blood sugar.

Fruits that come from temperate climates tend to have a low-med GI, whereas tropical fruits tend to be higher. Also, ripeness and storage time can alter the GI of a fruit - the more ripe, the higher the GI.

Pair some of your favorite fruits with this deliciously simple recipe for Dreamy Creamy Fruit Dip. Choose fruits with a low GI to keep it diabetes-friendly and guilt-free!
