Experts recommend fibre-rich diets because, on average, Canadians are not consuming enough dietary fibre on a daily basis. Some studies have shown high-fibre diets are usually lower in calories and larger in volume than low-fibre diets. Foods rich in fibre provide bulk, which requires more chewing and slower digestion. When increasing the amount of dietary fibre in your diet, water consumption must also increase.
With a very high source of fibre at 6 grams of fibre or more per serving, Post Shredded Wheat cereal is a great way to obtain at least 24% (Shredded Wheat & Bran is 28%) of your daily requirement of fibre.*
