Tips for Consuming Durian Safely

Despite having good nutritional content and minerals for health, consuming durian excessively can also have side effects.

For individuals with diabetes, consuming durian excessively can cause a drastic spike in blood sugar levels and pose a high risk. Here are some tips that young farmers can follow to enjoy durian safely.

Firstly, it is important to limit the amount of durian consumed. The safe limit for durian is around 35 grams per meal, equivalent to two durian seeds. Additionally, choose durians that are not too ripe, as the riper the durian, the higher the content of starch and sugar.

When enjoying durian, young farmers should carefully choose accompanying foods. Avoid pairing durian with sweet foods, energy drinks, starchy foods, coconut milk-based foods, fried foods, and sautéed dishes. The combination of durian and these foods can provide excessive calories and potentially increase blood sugar levels, leading to obesity and high cholesterol.

While consuming durian, young farmers should not consume alcoholic beverages simultaneously, as it can trigger aldehyde, causing redness on the face, numbness in parts of the body, dizziness, and even vomiting.

When consuming durian, young farmers should drink plenty of water to help alleviate the heat sensation caused by durian itself. It's also essential to consider one's medical conditions before consuming durian, such as diabetes, heart disease, kidney issues, high blood pressure, and others. (Nisa)
