Nutrition Facts About Grapes for Diabetics

Grapes usually get a "bad rap" for being "high in sugar" and are named as a fruit you need to avoid if you have diabetes.

The truth is...

...grapes are OK to eat if you have diabetes. They have a low glycemic index of 46 (which means their "sugar" is slow digesting).

Portion control is the only issue. It's easy to eat "bunches" of them. Stick to the 15-17 grape serving size and you shouldn't have blood sugar problems.

In addition, if you eat a little protein at the same time (cheese, cottage cheese, yogurt) or include grapes as part of a meal (vs. snacking on them with nothing else), the other foods in the meal help slow the "sugar" digestion.
