We have all heard of fibre and more often them not we associate this with keeping it ‘regular’.
Adequate fibre intake has been shown to have a range of potential health benefits including:
Fibre is the portion of plant foods that cannot be digested by the small intestine. Fibre then moves through to the large intestine where it is partially or completely fermented.
There are many types of fibre:
Can be found in: bran, fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds and wholegrain products
Can be found in: oats, psyllium, fruit, vegetables, legumes, barley, seeds and soy products.
Can be found in: potatoes, lentils, some wholegrains and Hi-Maize.
In Australia, many of us don’t meet our fibre intake goals of 25g/day for women and 30g/day for men. By adding more whole fruit and vegetables and/or wholegrains to your diet, you will find yourself meeting your goals in no time.
