How to Enrich Your Diet with Fiber and Why It Matters
The COVID-19 pandemic has strengthened consumer interest in health and nutrition. To take care of their health, consumers are adopting a healthier daily diet. They are also looking for products that can improve their overall well-being.
Indeed, consumers are more and more aware of what they eat. They want to make the best choices and understand what they should avoid or eat more for their health and/or to limit their impact on the planet.
Fiber: the easy way to maintain a healthy daily diet
To improve their health, consumers are aware of the health benefits that a diet rich in fiber can provide. Fiber enjoys a strong reputation with today’s consumers, but they seek optimum nutrition in their food – without sacrificing taste and convenience.
Fibers are a family of different carbohydrates. They are all essential and promote different properties related to digestive health. These carbohydrates are naturally present in fruits, cereals, pulses and tubers. Fiber is recognized by some clinical studies and consumers for its health benefits. The benefits include gut health, prebiotic effect, blood glucose management, satiety, weight management and sustained energy release. Fiber is essential to our health and well-being.
However, to achieve these benefits and improve health, fiber has a recommendation of minimum daily intake. But we have found that we generally lack the necessary levels of fiber while our ancestors consumed a lot more fiber than we do today. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends a daily fiber intake of at least 25 grams per day. On average, only 19% of the global population eats the recommended intake of fiber per day.(1)
