What Is Fiber?
Fiber is actually not a different nutrient altogether but is part of the carbohydrate family. It is actually a carbohydrate that the body cannot digest and absorb (sort of like cellulose), it needs to be removed. It cannot be broken down and digested like other sugars and has to be taken out of the body undigested. Sadly enough, not many realize this and the dietary daily amount of fiber are not acquired by many individuals. It’s time that you are told how good for you it is.
