Fruits are commonly known as a good source of natural sugar and carbohydrates that may affect your blood sugar levels and cause glucose spikes. Fruits like Papaya can help regulate blood sugar levels due to their low Glycemic Index and fibre-rich content. Papaya has a Glycemic Index (GI) of 60, which means it won’t raise your blood sugar levels too quickly, potentially preventing glucose spikes.

Here’s The Best Way To Consume Papaya
• Adopt a practice of papaya intake in appropriate proportions. One cup of papaya contains about 11 grams of natural sugar which can regulate your sugar levels.
• It is suggested to pair low-GI fruits like papaya with nuts like almonds or walnuts. Nuts have low carbohydrate content and Glycemic Index.
• Have one fruit at a time to maintain your glucose levels in your body.
• Avoid having fruits with or immediately after meals.

Papaya is a safe fruit as it contains flavonoids responsible for improving glucose metabolism. It is also rich in the enzyme. Thus, adding papaya to the diet and having it in a controlled portion maintains your glucose spikes and is beneficial.
