Nectarine nutrition, glycemic index, calories and serving size
Nectarine Glycemic index (GI)
Nectarines are a variety of peaches, with the main difference being nectarine’s smooth and thin coating and distinctive flavor.
According to The International Tables of Glycemic Index a raw nectarine from Australia has a glycemic index of 43±6.
Nectarines, like most fruits of the Prunus family, are classified as a low glycemic index food.
In this study the daily consumption of additional servings of low GI fruits, like nectarine, was associated with a significant benefit in glycemic control, blood lipids and blood pressure (2).
Nectarines are also rich with phenolic compounds, expressing a strong antioxidant capacity, which is correlated with protection against type 2 diabetes (3).
One finding suggests that nectarines promote longevity and healthspan, partly through modulating glucose metabolism and reducing oxidative damage (4).
Researches say stone fruits, like nectarine, may contain certain compounds that help fight off metabolic syndrome, lowering the risk of developing diabetes and cardiovascular issues (5).
