What Are Insoluble Dietary Fibers & What Foods Can I Find It In?

Dietary fibers are carbohydrates that we obtain from our diet.

Insoluble fiber means that it can’t dissolve in water.

What Are Dietary Fibers Good For?

Dietary fiber is defined as non-digestible carbohydrates.

Fiber cannot be broken down into sugar molecules in the body, like other carbohydrates. It passes through the body undigested.

Among other things, fiber helps regulate the body’s use of sugars, helping to keep hunger and blood sugar in check. (source 🗗)
