An invaluable ally in maintaining a healthy digestive system
Dietary fibres are macronutrients, nutrients that the body needs to absorb in large quantities, around 2 to 4 g per day. Fibre is primarily found in foods of plant origin, may be soluble or insoluble, and may or may not be broken down by digestive enzymes. The fibre present in rye and wheat bran is essential to good digestion. Prunes, which are high in fibre, can contribute to normal intestinal function (in a dose of 100g/day).
