Luckily, Kellogg’s Nutritionist, Catriona Campbell, knows. She explains just what is going on inside us.
“ Fibre is made up of the parts of foods that can’t be broken down by our digestive system. There are two types of fibre – soluble and insoluble – and they’re both important for our health. “
Mainly found in oats, legumes, fruit and vegetables, soluble fibre absorbs water to form a gel-like substance in our gut. This helps to keep things moving and keeps our digestive health on track.
This is what’s often referred to as ’roughage’ and can be found in cereal grains, wholemeal bread and breakfast cereals, like All-Bran. It helps to ‘bulk-up’ waste product as it moves through our digestive system, which likes this ‘bulk’ as it helps to pass waste material quicker and with less effort, helping to keep us regular.
10g of wheat bran fibre per day helps reduce digestive transit time. ALL-BRAN contains at least 3-6g wheat bran fibre per serve. Enjoy as part of a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
