OK, be honest, did you click to watch this video because you really wanted to know what a fifteen was?
It's pretty good if you did, I had no idea what a fifteen was when they asked me the question. So, we'll start with a lesson about quince, then we'll talk about whether it's good for people with diabetes or not.
The quince is native to the region between the Caspian Sea and the Black Sea, a mountainous region that touches northern Turkey, Iran and southern Georgia.
The quince is lumpy and yellow. The fruit that resembles a pear or an apple. The fruit is considered astringent and somewhat unpleasant in the rough. But when they get warm, they take on a pinkish tone and become very soft and sweet in flavor.
Quince is low calorie fruit. 100 g of raw fresh fruit provides 57 calories. It contains a large amount of antioxidants. Quince contains dietary fiber, minerals and vitamins.
The ripe quince fruit has a good concentration of vitamin C.
It is a good source of minerals such as copper, iron, potassium and magnesium, as well as B vitamins such as thiamine, riboflavin and pyridoxine (vitamin B-6).
Chances are you've never seen a quince in the produce section of your local supermarket. Although the fifteen come back a bit, it is best to buy them online. But I will warn you, they are quite expensive.
So, are quinces good for diabetes? Yes they are.
They are rich in fiber. They have a low glycemic index.
However, they are very difficult to find, although they come back. Without promoting the websites, there are several online orchards, especially in Ohio and Pennsylvania. The fruit is available mainly in the fall.
There are supplements that use quince in various ways. These supplements say it will help in digestive disorders, coughs, skin lesions, painful joints and a myriad of other ailments. I could not find any scientific study to confirm these claims, so my advice would be careful if you want to use a quince supplement.
