It is very important for diabetics to have a healthy diet. Reminding that balanced fruit consumption is important in a healthy diet, Anadolu Health Center Nutrition and Diet Specialist Tuba Örnek said, “The fact that the carbohydrate we take daily is complex and that the daily energy does not exceed 40-50 percent is valid for anyone without a special condition. It is even more important for diabetics. Therefore, fruits, which we know to be a source of healthy carbohydrates, should also be kept in certain portions. There is no fruit that we can eat as much as we want," he said.

Pointing out that the consumption of grapes, figs, bananas, melons, watermelons and dried fruits that have a high glycemic index, that is, can change blood sugar values ​​quickly, may be inconvenient for some people, Anadolu Health Center Nutrition and Diet Specialist Tuba Örnek said: Fruits consumed at meals help balance blood sugar. A snack can be made with fruit 2–2,5 hours after the main meal.

Portions should be determined individually by the dietitian.

Stating that the portions should be determined by the dietitian according to the needs of the person and the course of blood sugar, Nutrition and Diet Specialist Tuba Örnek said, “The juice of the fruit is not ready, it can be consumed freshly squeezed. However, since it is purified from the pulp, its glycemic index is increased. Therefore, it would be more beneficial to consume no more than 100 ml in a snack in the form of a smoothie together with its pulp.”
