Fruits and diabetes

According to the expert, people who have high blood sugar or confirmed diabetes should eat at least three servings of fruit a day, combining it with other foods, as the effect of sugar on the body in this case is very different. This also applies to those who are overweight or obese.

Fruit smoothies and juices

Despite their popularity, smoothies pose a certain risk because when fruit is crushed, it is not always clear how much of it is consumed. Thus, the body may receive more sugar.

To avoid exceeding the amount of sugar, it is better to combine different fruits and vegetables. This makes it easy to create a cocktail of vitamins, minerals, trace elements, water, fiber, and antioxidants.

However, in order to maintain a healthy diet, you should not exceed 150 ml of juices per day (homemade or store-bought, but from reconstituted concentrates). As for nectars and other fruit drinks that do not contain 100% fruit, regardless of whether they have added sugar or not, it is better to avoid them.

You should also eat fruit with the skin on, as it provides fiber that helps regulate the body's absorption of fructose.
