We’ve been asked about the glycemic index value for raspberries, and unfortunately, have not been able to find food research substantiation for any exact value. We’ve seen estimates for many berries that fall into the 40-50 GI range, and for most researchers, that would place them in the low GI category. Since 1 cup of fresh raspberries provides about 15 grams of total carbohydrates and only 5-6 grams of sugar (compared with 8 grams of dietary fiber), a modest serving of fresh raspberries (for example, 1/2 cup) is likely to be a very good fit in most diets, even diets focused on stabilization of blood sugar. We recommend no more than 1 serving (1/2 cup) a week.
