Mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana), also known as purple mangosteen, is an exotic fruit popular in the Southeast region of Asia.

Purple mangosteen is somewhat high in carbohydrates and sugars. A 100g serving of canned mangosteen contains 18g of carbohydrates, of which 2g is composed of dietary fiber.

According to the latest research, the glycemic index of purple mangosteen falls within the range of 58.5±8.9. This puts the glycemic index of mangosteens in the moderate category.

The mangosteen plant extract has been known for its anti-diabetic properties. One study suggests that the use of mangosteen as tea or eaten raw can have protective effects against diabetes (2).

Mangosteens have also demonstrated anti-obesity qualities, as well as plasma glucose and total cholesterol-lowering, and insulin-sensitizing properties (3, 4).

All in all, despite the carbohydrate content and the medium glycemic index, mangosteens can be recommended to diabetic individuals to consume in moderation.
