FIBRES

Dietary fibre is defined as all food substances that our digestive enzymes cannot break down and utilise as energy. All fibres fall into two basic categories: water soluble and water insoluble which are further divided into five subclasses: cellulose, hemicellulose, lignin, pectin and gum. The health benefits of insoluble and soluble fibres have been well documented. There are some nutrients contained in fibre that may be extracted for the body to use, but the basic fibre structure passes through our digestive tract to clean our intestines and give more bulk to the stool. It actually helps the bowels to function more efficiently.

More specifically, insoluble fibres absorb large amounts of water, stimulate the intestinal tract and provide gastrointestinal benefits. Soluble fibres are characteristically sticky and mesh with water to form gels. They modulate blood glucose by slowing its absorption into the bloodstream. In addition, they lower elevated blood cholesterol by binding bile salts, which cause the body to break down more cholesterol to manufacture more bile salts.
