Despite their diminutive size, cherries have a powerful flavour character that perfectly balances sourness and sweetness. Cherries are a pleasant and nutritious food source of vitamin C, potassium, and fibre. Cherries have a lower glycemic index compared to nearly all other fruits, resulting in a gradual release of sugar. As a result, cherries are considered one of the most suitable fruits for individuals with diabetes.

Optimising glucose metabolism by increasing the nutritional benefits of sweet cherries
• When selecting sweet cherries, try to choose those that are plump, firm, and dark red.
• Consider incorporating them into your meals as a snack or dessert.
• They can also be used in smoothies, baked goods, and salads.
• Sweet cherries are best stored in the refrigerator and can last up to a week.

Sweet cherries have been found to have a positive association with glucose metabolism. The primary reason for this is their high concentration of anthocyanins, a type of flavonoid with anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation in the body is associated with various metabolic disorders, including insulin resistance and diabetes. By reducing inflammation, anthocyanins may improve insulin sensitivity and regulate blood sugar levels.
