Glycemic Index of Fruits

Friday, January 18, 2008

Info courtesy of Managing Diabetes Team

I'm going to list off the glycemic load, which is a more accurate way to measure the effect of a food on your resultant blood sugar. And you generally want to keep your glycemic load less than 15.

apples 8
Apricots 7
Cherries 4
Grapefruit 4
grapes 11
Kiwi 7
Orange 7
Peaches 6
Pears 6
Pineapple is a 10
Plums 4
Cantaloupe 6
strawberries 1
Watermelon 6

The only fruit that got over 15 that's not dried that's on my list is bananas, which is an 18. Dried dates have a glycemic load of 58; dried figs 22; raisins 28.
