What is dietary fibre?
Dietary fibre is defined as material of plant origin, resistant to breakdown by digestive enzymes until reaching the large intestine. It increases beneficial gut micro-flora, buffers glucose intake and reduces blood lipid levels. Dietary fibre is not just the overall level of fibre in the diet that is important but also the relative amounts of the main types of fibre, lignin, pectin, cellulose and hemicellulose. Bio-Fibre contains all of the dietary fibre types in appropriate proportions, therefore giving optimal health benefit.
What does dietary fibre do?
The components of dietary fibre can have a filling effect, reducing hunger; they delay gastric emptying, and slow the absorption of food, thereby reducing post-prandial hyperglyceamia and buffering glucose intake. Dietary fibre components help maintain healthy functioning of the gastrointestinal tract, by decreasing intestinal transit time, assisting in the removal of toxic substances and increasing beneficial micro-flora in the large intestine. Dietary fibre components also help maintain healthy blood lipid levels by binding to (and promoting excretion of) cholesterol and bile acids.
