Fiber

Fiber makes up the non-digestible portion of carbohydrates. Because fiber cannot be digested and absorbed by the body, it has the capability of adding bulk to the diet, without adding calories. There are two main types of dietary fiber, soluble and insoluble, both of which have unique health benefits.

Soluble fiber -- commonly found in beans, fruits, oats, barley and several other foods -- absorbs water in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, helping you feel full and decreasing your appetite. Insoluble fiber – found in whole grains, vegetables, nuts, and other foods— helps regulate the digestive tract, promoting regularity. In addition to these benefits, dietary fiber also helps lower cholesterol, regulate blood sugar levels, and reduce the risk for heart disease, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and certain cancers.

In an effort to produce the most nutritious breads and baked goods available, Aunt Millie’s offers products that provide either a good source of fiber or an excellent source of fiber. Aunt Millie’s products that are good sources of fiber provide at least 10% of the daily recommended value of dietary fiber (25 grams), and excellent sources provide at least 20% of the daily recommended value. Aunt Millie’s high-fiber products can help take you well beyond the average American consumption of 11 grams of fiber per day, and help you obtain optimum health and wellness by meeting your dietary fiber needs.

Looking to make positive changes to your diet without compromising your favorite dishes? Aunt Millie’s Fiber for Life baked goods provide as much as 6 grams of fiber per serving and are available at a grocer near you. Enjoy!
