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 since serving size should be taken into consideration (2).

Even though the jackfruit peel is often disregarded, one research has shown the 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). 

Overall, even though jackfruit is categorized as a moderate to high glycemic index food, it has shown promising hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic results in lab conditions and can be advised to people with diabetes in moderation considering it has a low glycemic load (6).
