Why do we need to have fibre in the diet?

Fibre is an important component of a healthy balanced diet. We get fibre from plant-based foods, but it's not something the body can absorb. This means fibre is not a nutrient and contains no calories or vitamins.

Fibre helps your digestive system to process food and absorb nutrients.

Fibre lowers blood cholesterol.

Fibre helps to control blood sugar levels, which in turn controls appetite.

There are two types of fibre: insoluble and soluble.

insoluble fibre
Insoluble fibre
  • Insoluble fibre contains cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin. It helps your bowel to pass food by making stools soft and bulky. This type of fibre helps prevent constipation.
  • Insoluble fibre is found in the following foods:
  • beans
  • brown rice
  • fruits with edible seeds
  • lentils
  • maize
  • oats
  • pulses
  • wheat bran
  • wholegrain breads
  • wholegrain cereals
  • wholemeal breads
  • wholemeal cereals
  • wholemeal pasta
  • wholewheat flour.
soluble fibre
Soluble fibre
  • Soluble fibre contains gums and pectin. This type of fibre lowers cholesterol levels and controls blood sugar. It can be found in all fruit and vegetables, but the following are rich sources:
  • apples
  • barley
  • citrus
  • guar gum
  • legumes
  • oats
  • pears
  • strawberries.
what s a good amount of fibre
What's a 'good‘ amount of fibre?
  • The British Nutrition Foundation has issued the following guidelines for labelling food.
  • 'High fibre' should contain 6g fibre per 100g or ml.
  • A 'source' of fibre should contain 3g fibre per 100g or ml.
