What is fibre?
Fibre is the indigestible carbohydrate residue found in foods.
There are two types: soluble or insoluble. Soluble is soft and mushy – for instance beans and porridge; insoluble is hard and coarse, such as wheat bran.
Which foods are high in fibre?
Natural foods are usually high in fibre, i.e. whole grains, nuts, seeds, fruit and vegetables.
What happens to fibre in the body?
It passes through the stomach into the digestive tract and on to the large bowel intact where it absorbs water and other waste materials, then is passes as stool.
What are the benefits of fibre for the body?
Fibre obtained from natural sources such as fruit and vegetables sources helps to slow down the absorption of sugar into the blood, which in turn help to maintain energy levels. It also increases the speed at which foods pass through the digestive system, which creates a healthier environment and increases the production of intestinal bacteria, producing the softer stool.
What is the recommended daily amount?
For optimum performance, between 25 and 35 grams is recommended. At present, the amount consumed in the typical healthy diet is just 12-15 grams. One slice of wholemeal bread provides approximately 1.5 grams of fibre.
What happens if not enough fibre is consumed?
Our body is dependent on a good supply of fibre to help with the digestive process and the elimination of waste products from the food we eat. Unfortunately, our modern diet contains a high proportion of highly-processed and often fibre-deficient foods. This lack of fibre hampers the effectiveness of the digestive tract rendering it less efficient in the waste elimination process. Research suggests that this lack of fibre in the diet is the root cause of several digestive related problems.
