Why is fibre important?

Dietary fibre is important for good health. Public health advice recommends adults eat at least 30g fibre a day, but national diet and nutrition surveys indicate that on average are only getting about 18g per day. There are two types of fibre: soluble fibre and insoluble fibre. It is important to have a mixture of both.

More on why fibre is important via NHS Choices website.
