Why is a high-fibre diet so important for our health and how can we make sure we have enough fibre integrated into our diet?

Why is a high fiber diet so good for us?

A diet high in fiber is important and has been linked to a long list of health benefits. Studies* have shown that a healthy intake of dietary fiber significantly lowers risk for developing coronary heart disease, stroke, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and certain gastrointestinal diseases. The recommended normal daily fiber intake for adults is at least 30 g. However, research also
shows that the gap between the recommended and the actual intake of dietary fiber is quite large in many countries – even if people regularly consume fruit and vegetables. But why is this the case?

A changing lifestyle

The main reason are changes in consumers’ lifestyles. Most people lead a very busy life, are on the move throughout the day and have little time to prepare full meals. Moreover, a great variety of ready-to-eat food is available to them, which reduces their need to do their own cooking.

Snacks as a source of fiber

As a consequence of these changes snacking is becoming an increasingly vital part of people’s diets. Because ready-made meals are less healthy and can provide fewer nutrients, snacks are now an important source of nutrition and fiber. This is why nowadays consumers are looking for healthy snacks that meet their requirements of being sugar-free, high-fiber and low in salt.
