Persimmon Punch: Taming your blood sugar

Written by Team Ultrahuman

Persimmons are sweet and delicious-tasting fruits, but they are also high in carbohydrates. A persimmon of 168 grams contains around 31 grams of carbs. Moreover, the high sugar content in the fruit can cause high blood sugar or a hyperglycaemic event, which can adversely affect your health.

Satisfy your sweet tooth without upsetting your blood sugar
• Try reducing the portion size of the persimmon to 30 grams.
• Pair the fruit with healthy fats, such as walnuts and almonds. This can help stabilize your blood sugar levels and prevent blood sugar spikes.
• Adding a salad can add fibre when eating persimmon. This can help to reduce any blood sugar spikes.

Although persimmons are high in carbs, they are low in calories and have a high fibre content. This makes the fruit a great choice for including in weight loss diets. Persimmons also contain carotenoid antioxidants like beta-carotene and are also a great source of vitamin C, which can help to reduce the risk of glucose impairment.
