The Sweet and Sour Truth About Aam Panna’s Impact on Blood Sugar

If you’re a fan of tangy drinks, you’ve perhaps had a refreshing glass of aam panna before. A perfect summertime thirst-quenching drink is a traditional Indian beverage made from raw mangoes. Since more than one portion of the fruit is required in a serving, it leads to hyperglycemia. Juicing raw mangoes removes fibre from the fruit, mainly leaving carbohydrates quickly taken up by the bloodstream, resulting in high blood glucose.

Enjoy Aam Panna without compromising your Blood Sugar.
• You may choose whole mangoes over fruit juice to retain fibre and reduce carbohydrate intake.
• You may consider initially limiting the portion size to 30-50 gm and checking glucose response to avoid hyperglycemic events.
• You may add mint leaves, ginger, or other herbs to enhance the flavour without additional sugars.

Mangoes are a medium glycemic index (GI) fruit containing a combination of glucose and fructose; their ripeness impacts the rise in blood glucose. Aam Panna is made from raw, unripe mangoes, which can cause a spike in blood sugar levels. By using less sugar, pairing it with protein, and being mindful of portion sizes, those with prediabetes or diabetes can enjoy this drink without compromising their blood sugar.
