Is it safe to eat durian in pregnancy?
Strictly speaking, there have been no studies about the safety of eating durians in pregnancy. At the same time, modern science has not uncovered any reason to believe it is unsafe to do so. There is certainly no reason to conclude that eating durians in pregnancy can cause high blood pressure or nappy rash in newborns. However, a pregnant woman should eat durians in moderation as the fruit contains large amounts of sugar and carbohydrates - two medium sized seeds have about 60 calories.
