Dragon fruit is also known as pitaya. It is a tropical fruit that has gained popularity for its unique appearance and taste. But did you know that dragon fruit contains fruit sugars that can raise blood sugar levels? It is a fruit with a low glycemic index of 48-52, which means it is quickly digested and causes sugar spikes.

Optimize Dragon Fruit for better glucose control
• Dragon Fruit contains fewer carbs. So, controlling the portion will prevent hyperglycemia.
• Try adding some lemon juice to a bowl of Dragon Fruit.
• You can also add some feta cheese, nuts, and seeds. Adding fat and protein to it will control hyperglycemia.
• Try consuming it as a pre-workout snack or as a mid-morning snack.

Eating a moderate amount of Dragon Fruit, combined with foods that contain fat and protein such as feta cheese, nuts, and seeds, can help slow down the absorption of carbohydrates and prevent rapid spikes in blood glucose levels. Lemon juice contains flavonoids that can inhibit the enzymes responsible for breaking down carbohydrates, which can help slow down the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream.
