Clementines are sweet and juicy fruit that makes a tasty snack. Clementines have been associated with a lower risk of developing metabolic diseases due to their high antioxidant and fibre content. However, they contain fruit sugars called fructose, which might spike blood sugar levels if not consumed optimally. This may increase food cravings as well.

Tips to Consume This Fruit Optimally
• Portion control is key when consuming clementines.
• Instead of consuming one medium-sized clementine, opt for one small clementine to manage your fruit sugar intake.
• Additionally, adding a source of fat like nut butter or pairing it with a handful of nuts can lower the GI of the meal.
• Another option is to pair clementines with a protein shake like whey, which can also lower the GI of the meal.

By following these simple tips, you can enjoy clementines as part of a healthy and balanced diet. It is important to consume them mindfully to avoid any negative impact on your blood glucose levels and overall health.
