Fibre - an essential part of a balanced diet
The process of bowel elimination can take anywhere from 12 to 24 hours, sometimes even longer. Foods high in fat, sugar, artificial flavourings and additives have become ‘normal’ in our modern eating habits, choices are usually low in natural dietary fibre, making it harder for the body to digest. Unfortunately, our modern eating habits and lifestyles slow digestive transit times and bowel elimination quite considerably.
As elimination and transit time increases, the stool becomes dry and increasingly hardened, making it difficult to pass. Moreover, as the body re-absorbs water and the fluid content of the waste-matter that has failed to move through the digestive tract and be eliminated, it also re-absorbs soluble toxins.
Fibre is essential and a key ingredient to a healthy, varied and balanced diet.
Information about Ingredients
About sugar beet fibre
Sugar beet is a plant whose root contains a high concentration of sucrose. Sugar beets are related to other B. vulgaris cultivars, such as beetroot and chard. Once the sugar is extracted, the remaining material is used to produce the sugar beet fibre.
Compared to many conventional natural sources of dietary fibre, such as cereal products and fruits, sugar beet fibre has the following advantages:
- It has a higher content of dietary fibre, with an ideal balance of 2/3 insoluble fibre.
- It contains no phytic acid (cereal products, such as bran and flour, contain phytic acid which forms strong chemical complexes with iron and zinc and can consequently impair or reduce the natural absorption of these essential minerals in the human body).
- It is naturally free from gluten, which means it is an excellent dietary fibre source for people suffering from gluten intolerance.
Sugar beet fibre contributes to an increase in faecal bulk in two ways: the insoluble components of the fibre increase faecal bulk by absorbing water in the large intestine, while the soluble components are fermented by bacteria in the large intestine leading to an increase in bacterial mass.
