What is dietary fibre?

In brief, dietary fibre represents the edible parts of plants or other carbohydrates that are resistant to digestion and absorption in the human digestive system. Fiber consists of non-starch polysaccharides such as cellulose, hemicellulose, gums, mucilages, pectin, and oligosaccharides and also lignin, a complex polymer in certain plant cell walls. Yet another type of fibre is chitin, a polysaccharide that can be extracted from e.g. the cell walls of fungi and the exoskeletons of shellfish such as lobster and shrimps.

Fiber can be divided into two main types of dietary fibre: Insoluble and soluble fibre.

Insoluble fibre
This type of fibre increases the amount of stool and the bowel transit time, which refers to how long it takes for the food to move from the mouth until it leaves the body. 
Sources of insoluble fibre may come from whole grains, bran, nuts, seeds and peel of some fruits and vegetables, but also from other sources.

Soluble fibre
Soluble fibre can be dissolved in water where it forms a kind of gel or slime. Some soluble fibre can bind many times their own weight in water. Soluble fibre reduces the bowel transit time.
Sources of soluble fibre can be various fruis and some vegetables, husks. FibrePrecise belongs to this main group of fibre.
