Soluble Fibre Diet, Recipes

Dietary Fibre is a plant based nutrient also known as Fibre or roughage. Plant based nutrients come from fruits, vegetables, whole grains, dals and tubers. There are two parts to it, soluble fibre which is sticky and dissolves in water and insoluble fibre which does not dissolve in water and goes through your stomach without being broken down.

What is Soluble Fibre?

Think of Oats when you add water or milk to it. It gets sticky or gooey and that is what Soluble Fibre is. Hence the soluble fibre attracts water and slows down digestion. Having soluble fibre which turns like a gel like substance in the intestines can reduce your bad cholesterol (LDL cholesterol). Getting your soluble fibre through foods results in you getting more nutrients from plant based foods versus taking supplements.

Soluble Fiber and Insoluble fibre:

A healthy diet should contain both soluble Fiber and Insoluble Fiber. Total Fibre or Dietary Fibre is a combination of Soluble Fibre and Insoluble Fibre. The US recommended daily allowance (RDA) for Women (18 to 50) is 25 grams and 21 grams (51 years plus). US RDA for Men is 30 to 38 grams. The thumb rule is that for every 1,000 calories consumed you need 14 grams of fibre.

6 Benefits of Soluble Fiber

1. Reduces Cholesterol: Soluble fibre may reduce the absorption of cholesterol. Hence lowers total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol (the Bad cholesterol) therefore reducing the risk of heart disease.
2. Good for Diabetic: Regulate blood sugar for people with diabetes as it slows down the blood sugar release.
3. Soluble Fibre helps in better absorption of nutrients.
4. They bind with fatty acids.
5. Good for Weight Loss : Keeps you lean. As soluble fibre turns sticky when mixed with water, it delay stomach emptying time which hence makes you feel fuller and makes you then eat less.
6. Soluble fibre is great to treat diarrhoea and constipation.
