Fructose is a form of sugar present in fruits that has a negative impact on diabetics and overweight individuals. But you can still enjoy the seasonal mango and grapes provided you consume them in moderation.


Doctors encourage diabetics to consume particular fruits that are not only beneficial to the body but also control insulin.
We separate this fruit salad and present a list of diabetic friendly fruits. Here’s a list of them below:

1. Red grapefruit 

Grapefruit reminds you of an orange or sweet lime, but it is sweet, sour and juicy. Grapefruits are the healthiest option for diabetics. It is advisable to have half a grapefruit a day.

2. Berries – Cranberries, Raspberries, Blueberries

We love berries; select your favourite berry and rest assured the anti-oxidants will do their work. Besides, berries provide fibers, low carbs and various vitamins. 3/4th cup of berries will do the trick. 

3. Melons

Water melon, muskmelon or honeydew; pick any melon as it is rich in vitamin B and C, as well as beta-carotene, potassium and lycopene. A slice of any of these melons will give you the necessary vitamins you need.

4. Cherries

Cherries have anti-oxidant properties, plus they are low in carbs and glycemic levels. 12 cherries a day is all you need.

5. Peaches

It may have a velvet coat, but a peach is a good source for vitamin A and C. It is also low in carbs, rich in potassium and fiber.

6. Apricot 

Low carb, high in fiber, rich in vitamin A, apricots are a great option for diabetics. Include one apricot in your daily diet.

7. Apple

When you are eating an apple, do not peel it. The skin is rich in anti-oxidants, besides apples are a good source for fiber and vitamin C.
8. Kiwi
That fuzzy fruit is a power house for potassium, fiber, and vitamin C. It also contains low carbs that are necessary for diabetics. One kiwi will regulate your health.
