What is fibre?

Dietary fibre includes a number of types of carbohydrate which cannot be digested by us and afford varying health benefits.

The types of fibre are: those that dissolve in water, those that thicken in water and those that ferment (soluble, gel forming and fermented).

Broadly speaking soluble and gel forming fibre contribute to glycemic control (reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes), and fermented fibre can be a pre biotic (feed good gut bacteria).

Significant health benefits have also been associated with a high overall fibre intake

  • High-fibre intakes have consistently been shown to promote healthy bowels
  • High-fibre intakes have consistently been shown to protect against heart disease
  • High-fibre intakes have consistently been shown to reduce the risk of certain types of cancer
  • High-fibre intakes have consistently been shown to protect against the development of diabetes and reduce the negative effects of diabetes.
  • Several studies have found higher intakes of dietary fibre to be associated with a lower risk of mortality from all causes1.

How much do I need?

The RDA (average daily intake to protect health for 98% of the population) for fibre is an AI (adequate intake) this is due to a lack of comprehensive data to arrive at and RDA, so more may be required to fully protect health.
