Fibre is more important than we think!

Fibre’s essential to a healthy diet, but did you know it’s packaged up in some of the tastiest natural ingredients? Allow us to explain…

We often think of fibre as unappetising, but actually fibre can be found in a whole lot of different fruit, veg, nuts etc. Lots of the very tastiest natural ingredients are packed with the stuff. Our fruity bars and bites are a great source of fibre (Dates, Cashews, Raisins and Almonds). You’ll find health-helpful fibre in our Fruity Packs as well, so getting enough is a real treat.

How does fibre benefit me? 

Quite a lot, from keeping your digestive system moving to lowering your cholesterol and supporting your immune system. Getting enough fibre in your diet is important.

Am I getting enough? 

Adults should consume on average 30g per day, but the British Nutrition Foundation says the average intake is around just 18g per day. So how can you make sure you’re getting enough fibre? Our fruity Bites, for example, have 3.5g of fibre (Cherry & Almond) and 4.1g (Chocolate & Orange) per 100g

Switching from white carbs – bread, pasta, rice and noodles – to their whole-wheat equivalents is a good start.

A diverse intake of grains – wheat, oats, barley, rye – with their original fibre intact can help give you a variety of fibres.

Eating a selection of fresh fruit and vegetables will also make a huge difference: berries, nuts, seeds… Keep an eye for our upcoming range and all-new website!
