  • Improves mood: Durian contains the amino acid tryptophan, which helps produce the neurotransmitter serotonin. This can give us a feeling of happiness, calmness, and relaxation, improving our mood after consuming durian.

  • Enhances digestion: Durian is rich in both soluble and insoluble fiber, which can prevent digestive issues such as constipation, bloating, and abdominal discomfort.

  • Reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases: Durian is high in potassium, which is beneficial for blood circulation and people with high blood pressure.

  • Plant compounds found in durian have cholesterol-lowering effects and help prevent arterial plaque buildup, reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Additionally, it may reduce the risk of liver diseases caused by fat accumulation in the liver.

  • Regulates blood sugar levels: Durian has a low glycemic index, which means that after consuming durian, blood sugar levels do not rise rapidly. This is beneficial for individuals with diabetes in controlling their blood sugar levels.

  • Reduces the risk of cancer: Durian contains numerous antioxidants, which help eliminate free radicals from the body, reducing the risk of cancer.

Tips to select:

  • Choose fruits with a strong and fragrant aroma:
    Durians that have been treated with chemicals often have a faint or even no scent at all, and their odor is usually artificial, which can be unpleasant for the sense of smell.

    The aroma of durian becomes stronger as the fruit ripens. The scent can be very intense even from a considerable distance away. It is recommended to choose fruits that have a strong and aromatic scent.

  • The spikes of a durian should be evenly spaced and slightly rounded at the ends.
    You should choose durians that have spikes that are slightly rounded at the tops, and evenly sized and spaced. Durians that have been treated with chemicals may have dark-colored spikes, sharp spikes, but they may be soft due to being immature and forced to ripen using chemicals.

  • The waist or waistline of the durian should be bloated, revealing distinct segments.
    When examining the shape of a durian, pay attention to the waist area and do not rush to choose perfectly round fruits. Delicious and high-quality durians will have a bloated and even waistline that is not distorted. You should be able to see clear segments from the outside of the husk, and if the husk is cracked, there will be a faint, lingering aroma.
