Benefits of Durian
Carbohydrates and Fiber
One cup of durian satisfies approximately half the recommended amount of 130 grams of carbohydrates per day. If you include durian in your meal plan, carefully monitor your carbohydrate consumption: Too many carbs can increase your risk of weight gain just as easily as too much fat in your diet. A serving of durian contributes a significant amount of fiber to your eating plan: 9.2 grams. Include 25 to 38 grams of fiber in your diet every day to help ward off constipation, diarrhea and diverticulitis.
