Grape nutrition, glycemic index, calories, and serving size
Grape Glycemic index (GI)
Grapes are sweet fruits, botanically classified as berries, often associated with warm weathers.
According to The International Tables of Glycemic Index, the glycemic index of raw grapes from Canada is 43, whereas grapes from Italy have a little higher glycemic index of 49. The average value of 46 of these two is selected as our value. Black grapes from Australia have an even higher glycemic index equalling 59. However another older study puts the GI of fresh Australian black grapes around 50 (3).
The GI of the refreshing drink grape nectar has been calculated to fall in the range of 52±5.
Dried grapes or raisins tend to have a higher glycemic index due to concentrated sugars. The GI of raisins from Israel is estimated to be around 66±6. Canadian raisins have a glycemic index ranging around 64±11.
Grapes are classified as having a low glycemic index (4).
Healthy individuals and people with diabetes mellitus type 2 respond similarly to grapes based on glycemic indices (5).
Experiments with grapes have shown positive health benefits for reducing some metabolic disturbances that occur during type 2 diabetes mellitus, such as hyperglycemia and hyperinsulinemia. Grapes, especially darker coloured ones, have many antioxidants with abilities to regulate glucose and insulin (6).
Other studies have also concluded that the phytochemicals found in grapes, such as polyphenols, can have an ameliorative effect on mechanisms that cause hyperglycemia (7).
The low GI combined with the positive effects of grapes on diabetic metabolic profiles, make this fruit, especially darker grapes, a desirable part of a diet for people with diabetes.
