Too much of a good thing
While fresh fruits are recommended to diabetics as a healthier source of natural sugar, GI values and sugar contents differ according to the type of fruit.
For example, apples have a GI value of 39, which is in the low range, while watermelon is in the high range with a GI value of 72. GI values are higher in dried fruits, as the loss of water makes the sugar content more saturated.
Hence, it is best for people to check the glycaemic index and sugar content of all foods to ensure they are always on top of their health.
