Di­etary Fi­bre

Consumer Voice - - The Surveillance Series -

Di­etary fi­bre can gen­er­ally be de­scribed as that por­tion of food that is not di­gested in the hu­man small in­tes­tine. It passes into the large in­tes­tine, where it is par­tially or fully fer­mented.

A high-fi­bre diet of­fers many health ben­e­fits, which in­clude: a) nor­mal­is­ing bowel move­ments, b) main­tain­ing bowel health, c) low­er­ing of choles­terol lev­els, d) help­ing con­trol blood sugar lev­els, and e) aid­ing in achiev­ing healthy weight. So, bread with high di­etary fi­bre is good for con­sumers.
