Chestnut is not a very high-calorie food as we thought. 10 of the fresh chestnuts baked or cooked in embers are almost 1 medium fresh apple.
Chestnut is a food with a low glycemic index compared to high starchy vegetables. The most important reason for not increasing sugar in the blood quickly is due to the presence of approximately 8 grams of dietary fiber in 100 grams chestnut.
