Health Benefits of Eating Fiber
Fiber is one of those nutrients that we all know is important. It is optimal to get your dietary fiber through a balanced, high fiber diet. Fiber is present in all plants that are eaten for food, including fruits, vegetables, grains and legumes. Fiber from grains is referred to as cereal fiber. Our products contain soluble, oats, oat bran to name a few and insoluble fiber, whole wheat, barley, brown rice.

Soluble fiber partially dissolves in water and insoluble fiber does not dissolve in water. Most nutritionists and diet experts suggest that approximately 20-30 percent of our daily fiber intake should come from soluble fiber.

Current recommendations suggest that adults consume of up to 25 grams (women) and 38 grams (men) of dietary fiber per day. It is also suggested children over 2 should consume an amount equal to or greater than their age plus 5 grams per day.
