What is dietary fibre?
Fibre is a macronutrient found in many of our wholesome ingredients. Some of our taste experts’ favourite natural sources of fibre are dried fruit like dates, cranberries and raisins, as well as the rustic rolled oats in our flapjacks and the wholegrain flour in many of our little bakes and puds.
Are nuts a good source of fibre?
Yes! All nuts have different nutritional profiles but one thing they all have in common is they supply a great source of fibre, especially almonds, pecans and pistachios.
What’s the best way to get more fibre?
Opting for more fibre rich foods is easier than you might think! Simply swapping plain flour for wholegrain goes a long way to increasing the fibre in your daily diet, like brown bread instead of white. Another good swap is choosing whole fresh fruit or fruit smoothies instead of fruit juices.
