Food rich in dietary fibre

Probably everyone, at least once in a lifetime, gets an advice from a doctor, person who we know, or a friend, that we should consume more fibre. Then, we go on the huge platform called World Wide Web, type “fibre-rich food”, use 5 minutes of our time and effort to read all the information, and finally conclude that there is too much information, and we’ll never find what we need because it’s scattered everywhere. So, we give up. 

 

What would you say if we told you that on the following pages you’ll find a real list of foods rich in dietary fibre, as well as some recipes? In order to be able to understand the list of fibre-rich nutrients well, we must first talk about what dietary fibres actually are. 

Soluble and insoluble fibre

Fibres were well known to our ancestors, as their diet consisted mainly of plant foods. We only started eating meat 2.6 million years ago. That’s why it’s still very important that our diet includes fibre. Fibres are found in products of plant origin. We divide them into two groups – soluble and insoluble.

 

Soluble fibres are changed through the digestive tract. They bind the water in our stomachs and therefore give us an even greater feeling of satiety. They also affect the pH in the stomach, provide a constant release of energy and regulate our blood sugar levels.

 

However, insoluble fibres remain unchanged on the journey through the digestive tract and consequently ensure the proper functioning of the gastrointestinal tract. They remove waste products and toxins from the body, make it easier for food to pass through and take care of absorption.

 

Fibres have no caloric value.

Why eat fibre every day?

Fibres have a very positive effect on digestion. A diet that contains a very small amount of fibre travels through our digestive tract for 60 up to 90 hours. However, a diet rich in fibre only needs 30 hours or less. This means that the more fibre our diet contains, the faster our digestion will be. Fibres also have a beneficial effect on the intestinal mucosa, give us a longer feeling of satiety and regulate the rise of blood sugar. They also have a positive effect on lowering cholesterol. Oppositely, too low fibre intake can cause constipation and intestinal irritation.

How much fibre is recommended to be consumed daily?

The recommended daily intake is at least 40 g of fibre for men, and at least 25 g for women. For the elderly, a slightly lower amount is recommended, namely 21 g of fibre per day for women, and 30 g for men

 

Foods rich in fibre 

Insoluble fibre:  

  • Whole grains
  • Chia seeds
  • Flax seeds
  • Nuts
  • Brown rice
  • Fruit
  • Vegetables
  • Wheat bran.

Soluble fibre:  

  • Legumes (mainly lentils, beans and peas),
  • Oats and oat flakes
  • Barley
  • Vegetables (leek, onion, artichoke, asparagus)

Menu example with fibre-rich foods: 

Breakfast: oat flakes with fruit or oatmeal with plums and bananas

Snack: a handful of walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts or fruit (apple, banana, apricot, plums…)

Lunch: brown rice with chicken and peas, oat bran cookie or chickpea salad (recipe below)

Whole-grain cookie or fruit

Dinner: Whole-grain muesli with milk or tuna sandwich, apple

Fibre replacement or Beta Glucan

If the foods on the list above are not attractive enough, we can also consume a large part of the required daily fibre intake by consuming Beta Glucan, which is a natural polysaccharide classified as soluble dietary fibre. Its main ingredient is oat bran, which helps reduce the rise in glucose levels after meals, and contributes to normal blood cholesterol levels.

Beta Glucan is a completely natural product that doesn’t cause any side effects. It has a positive effect on high cholesterol, so we often recommend it to individuals who have cholesterol problems.

 

Using Beta Glucans is very simple
  • The recommended daily amount to maintain a normal blood cholesterol level is 20 g of powder. 20 g of powder contains 3 g of beta-glucans
  • To reduce the rise in blood glucose level after a meal, consume 28 g of powder for every 30 g of available carbohydrates (sugar, starch). 28 g of powder contains 4 g of beta glucans.
  • Stir in your favourite beverage, soups, sauces, yogurt, smoothie, fruit salads and other foods. 

Beta Glucan is now available at very affordable price – daily use will cost you only 0,79 £, or 7,91 £ for 200 g, which is enough for 10 days.
