Dietary fibre is made up of parts of plant foods that our bodies cannot digest or absorb which is important in a healthy diet.
Dietary fibres can be classed in the following groups:
- Soluble fibre; this is the type of fibre that dissolves in water and is found in oats, peas, beans, apples, citrus fruits, carrots, barley and psyllium and also includes beta glucans
- Insoluble fibre; this is commonly found in whole-wheat flour, wheat bran, nuts, beans and vegetables, such as cauliflower, green beans and potatoes. This fibre is not soluble in water.
Resistant Starch; this starch ‘resists’ digestion and is important to support a healthy digestive system. Foods containing this include, beans, peas, lentils, and whole grains such as oats and barley.
