Endless beneficial substances, but also sugar. How dangerous is fruit for diabetics?
The delicious bite into a delicious piece of cream cake. The licking of a spoon full of jam – for the approximately eight million diabetics out there, that’s a taboo. The high sugar content of these foods completely wreaks havoc on the insulin level. The sweet, healthy and tasty alternative is fruit. But here too it depends on the amount.
Sweet delights to the palate are always a great temptation. As a diabetic, resisting is not easy. Fortunately, there is a very tasty and, above all, very healthy alternative with fruit, which truly tastes good. But is this true? Can I eat fruit as a diabetic? Fruits of nature do include fructose, glucose, and the sugar-like substance sorbitol.
The good news: fructose and sorbitol have a slight effect on the blood sugar. And the effect of the glucose is blocked by the high fibre content in fruit.
