Consuming-Hundred-Percent-Fruit-Juice-Does-Not-Alter-Blood-Sugar-Levels

New study reported that consuming one hundred percent fruit juice does not impact fasting blood insulin, fasting blood glucose or insulin resistance.

Previous research results have shown that consumption of pure fruit juice is not linked to increasing risk of developing type 2 diabetes. It also supports a growing body of evidence that fruit juice has no significant impact on glycemic control. The study was published in Journal of Nutritional Science on January 18, 2018.

Type 2 diabetes is a metabolic disorder where the body is incapable of responding to insulin. According to The American Diabetes Association, around 90% of the 29 million cases in adults and children in the U.S are suffering from type 2 diabetes. Healthy lifestyle is the first line of defense for preventing and treating type 2 diabetes. A healthy diet, regular physical exercise, and maintaining a healthy weight are also encouraged.

The study was carried out by comprehensive data analysis to quantitatively evaluate correlation between consumption of pure juice and blood glucose control. As a part of study, the meta-analysis of 18 randomized controlled trials (RCT) was carried out. The effect that 100% juice from fruits such as apple, citrus, berry, pomegranate, and grape on fasting blood insulin and blood glucose levels was examined. This method was used as a biomarker for diabetes risk.

According to Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) Market report published by Coherent Market Insights, Effective management of diabetes is vital, especially considering the adoption of sedentary lifestyle of most people across the globe. According to US Dietary Guidelines, healthy eating pattern should include vegetables, fruits, low-fat or fat-free dairy, grains, and a variety of protein foods. A glass of 100% fruit juice could replace one serving (1/2 cup) of fruit and can supplement whole fruit to help people add more nutrition to diet.
