Does Sugar in Fruit Cause Inflammation? Here's What Dietitians Say

Maintaining a diabetic diet necessitates paying close attention to the foods and nutrients consumed, particularly carbohydrates. Fruit is sometimes questioned as a beneficial addition to a diabetic diet because it is a natural source of carbohydrates and fructose, a naturally occurring sugar.  

Experts advise diabetics to include fruit in a healthy diet, despite the common misconception.  

According to Mary Ellen Phipps, M.P.H, RDN, author of The Easy Diabetes Cookbook, "people with diabetes can benefit from fruit just as much as people without diabetes."  

"Fruit adds fiber, vitamins, and minerals to our regular diets. Additionally, fruits are a great food group for hydration because they typically contain a high water content."

Fruit is a good source of fructose and fiber-containing carbohydrates. It is a nutrient-dense food that also contains water, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.   

However, fructose is frequently mentioned as the nutrient to avoid if you have diabetes, even though fruit contains many other nutrients that are good for your health.  

Plus, the quantity of fructose you'll consume when eating whole fruit is less than that you'd consume when eating or drinking foods that contain large amounts of fructose in the form of high-fructose corn syrup
