The mango is a sweet fruit that is enjoyed worldwide; most would say that it is the most consumed fruit in the world. This however was not an easy feat for the mango; it took thousands of years to achieve this status.
Mangoes are fairly high in natural sugar which leads to the question of whether or not you should eat this fruit if you are a diabetic. Most physicians say that you should eat it, in moderation of course. Experts suggest no more than 120 grams should be consumed. Mangos are considered good for the body due to the fact that they have a somewhat low glycemic index. The glycemic index or GI is a measurement that represents how much of a rise the blood sugar results in after consuming any carbohydrate-containing food.
