Nutritional , Glycemic and Ecological Assessment of Green Jackfruit for Diabetes in Kerala

  title={Nutritional , Glycemic and Ecological Assessment of Green Jackfruit for Diabetes in Kerala},
  author={James Joseph},
Objective: Kerala has a high prevalence of diabetes. Management of diabetes through pharmacological strategy imposes economic burden and adverse effect. Green jackfruit, a traditional food of Kerala, has shown promising effect in the management of diabetes. So the present study was focused to evaluate the nutritional quality and glycemic load of green jackfruit as a meal and also to evaluate the antidiabetic sales in units during the jackfruit season. Materials and methods: Nutritional analysis…

Efficacy of green jackfruit flour as a medical nutrition therapy replacing rice or wheat in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study
Patients from Group A had a significantly higher reduction in HbA1c, FPG, and PPG than Group B demonstrating the efficacy of jackfruit flour in glycemic control as medical nutrition therapy replacing an equal volume of rice or wheat flour in daily meal.
Efficacy of Jackfruit365™ Green Jackfruit Flour Fortified Diet on Pegfilgrastim to Prevent Chemotherapy-Induced Leukopenia, Irrespective of Tumor Type or Drugs Used—A Retrospective Study
Inclusion of green jackfruit flour as a dietary intervention prevents chemotherapy-induced leukopenia in patients undergoing chemotherapy along with pegfilgrastim.
Inhibitory Effect of Polyphenols from the Whole Green Jackfruit Flour against α-Glucosidase, α-Amylase, Aldose Reductase and Glycation at Multiple Stages and Their Interaction: Inhibition Kinetics and Molecular Simulations
The found potential of MJ in antihyperglycaemic activity via inhibition of α-glucosidase and in antidiabetic action through inhibition of the polyol pathway and protein glycation is more likely to be related to the presence of the phenolic compounds, according to the findings.
A glycaemic index compendium of non-western foods
The objective of this review is to provide the GI values for a variety of foods that are consumed in non-Western countries in an attempt to widen its application in many other regions of the world.


Nutritional assessment of a jackfruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus) meal.
The jackfruit seeds are a good source of starch (22%) and dietary fibre and the meal is categorized as a low GI meal.
Effect of a Low-Calorie Diet on Restoration of Normoglycemia in Obese subjects with Type 2 Diabetes
If long-term follow-up proves sustained benefits, very low-calorie diets may be an alternative to more drastic options for reversal of type 2 diabetes.
International Tables of Glycemic Index and Glycemic Load Values: 2008
OBJECTIVE—To systematically tabulate published and unpublished sources of reliable glycemic index (GI) values. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS—A literature search identified 205 articles published
Food consumption and the incidence of type II diabetes mellitus
Prevention of type II diabetes might be aided by consumption of certain foods that are rich in nutrients with hypothesized health benefits, including green vegetables, fruit and berries, oil and margarine, and poultry.
It is the glycaemic response to, not the carbohydrate content of food that matters in diabetes and obesity: The glycaemic index revisited
Greater consideration needs to be given to the harmful effects of high-GI starchy foods in the treatment and prevention of obesity and diabetes.
Light is thrown into the scope of Artocarpus heterophyllus Lam in future researches as it is a drug available in various parts of the world, which is cost effective and proven to be safe for diabetes mellitus.
Reversal of type 2 diabetes: normalisation of beta cell function in association with decreased pancreas and liver triacylglycerol
Normalisation of both beta cell function and hepatic insulin sensitivity in type 2 diabetes was achieved by dietary energy restriction alone, and was associated with decreased pancreatic and liver triacylglycerol stores.
Incidence of type 2 diabetes mellitus and prediabetes in Kerala, India: results from a 10-year prospective cohort
High incidence of prediabetes over diabetes observed in this study shows an epidemic trend of T2DM in Kerala, India, which requires an immediate public health action.
Risk factor profile for chronic non-communicable diseases: results of a community-based study in Kerala, India.
In this large study of community-based sample in Kerala, high burden of NCD risk factors was observed, comparable to that in the United States, suggesting that anthropometric variables may not be useful surrogates for biochemical risk factors for population screening purposes.
