Can diabetic people eat Dried Apricots?
Yes, in moderation. Dried Apricots are diabetic friendly and low in GI; however, we recommend not to consume them in excess. Please follow the serving size as per recommended on package. Due to the process of dehydration of the fruits, dried fruits are naturally higher in sugar per gram compared to fresh fruits. However, the dehydration process also makes the nutrients like fiber, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants more concentrated in dried fruits as compared to fresh fruits. Low-GI dried fruits, when eaten in moderation, can be part of a healthy diabetes diet. (https://www.ijmrhs.com/medical-research/dry-fruits-and-diabetes-mellitus.pdf)
