More about fiber

Fiber makes up the non-digestible portion of carbohydrates. Because fiber cannot be digested and absorbed by the body, it has the capability of adding bulk to the diet, without adding calories. There are two main types of dietary fiber, soluble and insoluble, both of which have unique health benefits.

Soluble fiber -- commonly found in beans, fruits, oats, barley and several other foods -- absorbs water in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, helping you feel full and decreasing your appetite. Insoluble fiber – found in whole grains, vegetables, nuts, and other foods— helps regulate the digestive tract, promoting regularity.
