Learn More About Low Fibre
Fibre is what keeps our digestion moving. There are two types of fibre. Soluble, which binds with water to create a gel-like substance (think of it like oatmeal), and insoluble, which is the “roughage” portion found mostly in skins and seeds of plants (think of it like celery).
Insoluble fibre’s most important role is to promote bowel regularity. Soluble fibre slows digestion to provide a variety of health benefits.
