Fruit for Thought: The Best Fruits to Add to Your Daily Diet

Fruits are a delicious and healthy source of natural sugar that can provide essential nutrients and fibre while positively impacting glucose metabolism. While some fruits have a high glycaemic index, which means they can raise blood sugar levels quickly, there are plenty of low-glycaemic-index fruits that can positively impact glucose metabolism.

Fruits that help moderate blood sugar levels
• Avoid having fruits in the form of juices. Fruit juices have high levels of sugar and can cause glucose spikes.
• Having the whole fruit with fibre slows down the fruit’s glucose absorption, thus reducing the chances of a glucose spike.
• Pair fruits with healthy fats and proteins. Add a handful of nuts to your plate of fruits to stabilise glucose levels.
• Have low-GI fruits with a protein smoothie. The protein in the smoothie can help stabilise the glucose spike.
• Consume fruits after your meals to achieve the ideal glucose response.

Also, when your glucose levels are low, consider having a low-GI fruit; these fruits help stabilise the glucose levels. Opting for low-GI fruits such as apples, berries, pears and oranges can help maintain glucose levels. However, while low-GI fruits can positively impact glucose metabolism, it is important to consume them in moderation and as part of a balanced diet.
