Jackfruit Glycemic index (GI)

75

Jackfruit is an unusually large tropical fruit, native to South India. The edible part of it is commonly called “vegan meat” due to its texture and taste.

According to one study, a jackfruit meal has a glycemic index value of 75 (1).

Another study has shown the glycemic index of a ripe jackfruit to be 63, but with a lower glycemic load of 18 (2).

Even though the jackfruit peel is often disregarded, one research has shown a promising potential of jackfruit peel as a new source of antioxidants and hypoglycemic agents (3). The fruit pulp is a natural source of antioxidant compounds (4). 

The fruit has also significantly improved glucose tolerance in both normal and diabetic subjects (5). It can even potentially ameliorate pancreatic β-cell dysfunction, making it an important dietary component for people with type 1 diabetes (6).

Overall, despite the fact that jackfruit is categorized as a moderate to high glycemic index food, it has shown promising hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic results in lab conditions (7) and is advised to diabetics but, as everything, in moderation.
