Did you know that the recommended daily dietary guidelines for fiber are 25-38 grams? That might not mean much to you other than the average American only gets 15 grams a day. It's surprisingly easy to get the recommended amount by little things like a hearty breakfast. Fiber One cereals provide at least 30 percent of the daily value per serving while some Fiber One cereals offer more than 50 percent. With such great varieties such as some of our favorites: Honey Clusters, Raisin Bran Clusters, Caramel Delight and Shredded Wheat, it's a great way to start the day with some fiber.
In case you wondered, there are two types of fiber: soluble and insoluble. Fiber is the part of plant foods that our body doesn't digest. Soluble fiber dissolves in water and can be found in foods such as beans, fruits and oat products. Insoluble fiber is what is called "gut healthy fiber." It does not dissolve in water and can be found in whole grain products like Fiber One cereals.
Fiber has been noted in clinical studies to help in weight management and is good for digestive health. One of the changes I've made in our lives is switching to whole grains to help ensure my family is eating healthier. We love the Fiber One cereals not just because of the taste but it provides a flavor for each person's preference.
