“Raspberries have one of the highest fiber contents of all berries, making them a great choice for blood sugar management and weight control,” Erin Palinski-Wade, CDE, author of the 2 Day Diabetes Diet, told Everydayhealth.
An 80-gram serving of raspberries contains roughly seven grams of fibre. This is more than other fruits, such as an apple which contains two and a half grams of fibre.
The American Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) explains that “because the body is unable to absorb and break down fiber, it doesn’t cause a spike in blood sugar the way other carbohydrates can. This can help keep your blood sugar in your target range”.
It is great for weight management because it is processed gradually by the stomach, meaning it leaves you feeling fuller for longer.
