Wholemeal High Fibre

Wholemeal High Fibre

We have heard over and over again how important fibre is in our diet, please explain the benefits:

A number of plant foods, in particular some fruit, pulses, wholegrain cereals and vegetables contain fibre. There is insoluble fiber and soluble fibre.

Insoluble fibre is not absorbed by the body, but passes through the gut to be expelled. Insoluble fibre helps prevent constipation.

Soluble fibre can help to reduce the amount of cholesterol in the blood.
