Dry Fruit Bites- A Healthy Snack that Requires Monitoring

Written by Team Ultrahuman

Dry fruits have a lot of health benefits as they are loaded with good fats, essential vitamins, and nutrients. However, some of them can be low in glucose content, which can lead to hypoglycemia, a condition where the sugar levels fall below normal. Some dry fruits, such as raisins, dates, prunes, apricots, etc., can be a source of sucrose and glucose, which cause a sudden spike in glucose levels. Thus, this healthy snack calls for monitored consumption.

The right mix of dry fruits can keep your sugar levels balanced!
• If the sucrose content in your dry fruit bite is increasing your glucose levels, then consider sugar-free alternatives like walnut, pistachios, almonds, etc.
• On the other, if there’s a dip below the normal level, you can add 1 or 2 (10gms) dates to stabilize the sugar levels.

Dry fruits come with a host of health benefits but can play tricks with your sugar levels. Studies have shown that dry fruits consumed with carb-rich food can reduce the rate of a sugar spike. However, dried fruits are higher in calories. Hence, consider having them in moderation.
