What Is Dietary Fibre?

Dietary fibre is mostly polysaccharides composed of glucose units, but human digestive enzymes cannot break the bonding of these units. We can think of fibre as non-starch polysaccharides. These include cellulose, hemicellulose, pectin, and some other types of fibre.

Depending on their solubility in water, there are of two main types of fibre, soluble fibre and insoluble fibre. Both of these types are important for optimum health. Soluble fibre can help lower blood sugar and cholesterol. It's found in oat bran, beans, peas and most fruits. Water-Insoluble fibre can treat or prevent constipation and diverticular disease, which affects the colon. It's found in wheat bran and some vegetables. Some scientists believe that whole grains, containing high amounts of insoluble fibre, protect against several forms of cancer.
