Like any other fruit, the glycemic index of a peach depends on its sort, ripeness, and produced product.

According to The International Tables of Glycemic Index, raw German peach has a glycemic index of 28, while raw peach from Italy has a GI of 57±5. The reason for this drastic difference is that sunlight increases the sweetness of peaches. The mean of these studies makes the average GI of a peach 42.

The GI of a dried peach from the UK ranges around 35±5.

Canadian canned peaches have a GI of 52. Australian peaches canned in heavy syrup have a GI of 58±11 or 64±3, depending on the brand. Australian peaches canned in natural juice have a GI of 45±6. Surprisingly peaches canned in reduced-sugar syrup of the same brand have a GI of 62±9. On average, peaches, canned in natural juice, have a GI of 40.

The GI of a peach melba yogurt from the UK is 57±5. A low-fat peach melba yogurt doesn’t change much in its properties in this sense, with a GI of 56±11. Similarly, white peach yogurt has a GI of 54±12.

According to Harvard Health Publishing, canned peaches have a GI of 43±5, while another study puts this number around 74±7 (2, 3).

On average raw and dried peaches have a low glycemic index, whereas canned peaches can be considered low to moderate.
