Dietary fibre is the part of plants which passes mostly undigested through the stomach and small intestine. Dietary fibre has many advantages for health and is only found in plant based foods. Bread contains several types of dietary fibre – insoluble fibre, soluble fibre and resistant starch. Insoluble fibre is the predominant type of fibre in bread, which plays an important role in keeping you regular and maintaining a healthy digestive system.
