Why is Fibre Important?
Fibre is an important part of a balanced diet as it helps to keep your digestive system working as it should. It’s found in plant-based foods such as fruit, vegetables, whole grains and legumes.
There are two types of fibre — soluble and insoluble. Soluble fibre dissolves in water in your digestive system, whereas insoluble fibre passes through without being broken down, which in turn helps to move other foods through.
Foods Sources of Soluble Fibre:
• Root vegetables
Foods Sources of Insoluble Fibre:
• Wholemeal bread
• Cereals and bran
• Nuts and seeds
