What is Fibre?

Fibres are the structural parts of plants found in all plant derived foods  – vegetables, fruits, grains(rice, wheat, rye, barley, oat), and legumes (Kidney beans, black eyed beans, pinto beans, red beans, pinto beans, garbanzo beans and navy beans) , tubers(potatoes) and root crops (such as yam and cassava)

Fibres that occur intact naturally are called dietary fibre and those that are extracted from plant or manufactured are called functional fibres


Benefits of Fibre:

Fibre is essential for maintaining a healthy digestive system, it plays a vital role in the digestive process. 



  1.       Fibre cannot be broken down by digestive enzymes in the body it remain in the digestive tract, to attract water in the colon which soften the stool for easy passage-it therefore promote bowel movements,
  2. It also serve as a brush for colon cleansing. 
  3.       Fibre in diet slows the breakdown of starch into simple sugars, such as glucose thereby slowing the absorption of sugar and possibly reduced the levels of sugar in the blood.
  4.       During Digestion, soluble fibre forms a gel-like mass that binds cholesterol to the stool; if eaten enough amount, soluble fibre can reduce the levels of bad cholesterol in the blood.
  5.       Beacuase fibre rich food increase fullness and satiety, they can help with weight control.

  3.       High Fibre Diets prevents the risks of colon cancer.
  4. It can help Lower Blood Cholesterol, and protect against Heart diseases.





Are you getting Enough Fibre in Your Diet?


A lot of us are not getting enough fibre through our diet.

According to the government guidelines, your total fibre intake should be 18g per day, but most of us eat less than this amount.

British Nutrition Foundation put the average adult intake at 14g.
