Dark fruits, rich in anthocyanins, appear to attenuate the glycemic response, compared to a control product with the same amount of sugar. The same effect is demonstrated by anthocyanins extracted from black currants. Phenolic compounds can slow the absorption of glucose in the small intestine by interacting with carbohydrate-digesting enzymes and glucose-transporting proteins. In addition, phenolic compounds can reduce oxidative stress and inflammation.
