Soluble and Insoluble Fiber

Dietary fiber is a type of carbohydrate that the human body can’t digest or absorb. It passes relatively intact through our stomach, small intestine and colon – and out of our body as waste. Dietary fiber helps keep an individual feeling full longer, helps maintain normal digestive health, and can lower cholesterol levels.

Soluble Fiber. This kind of fiber breaks down in water to create a gel-like substance. It can aid in lowering blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Oats, peas, beans, apples, citrus fruits, carrots, barley, and psyllium all contain soluble fiber.

Insoluble fiber. People who are experiencing constipation or irregular stools may find this sort of fiber helpful since it encourages the passage of material through the digestive tract and improves stool volume. Insoluble fiber may be found in abundance in whole-wheat products including flour, wheat bran, nuts, beans, and vegetables like potatoes, cauliflower, and green beans.

Variable plant meals have different amounts of soluble and insoluble fiber. We should consume a variety of high-fiber meals for our best health benefits. Follow this page to know more about the health benefits of foods. We can provide you amazing recipes as well, feel free to contact us!
