Category: Health & Beauty


Insoluble fiber is a type of dietary fiber that does not absorb or dissolve in water. It does not break down as it travels through our digestive system. A diet high in insoluble fiber offers many benefits to your digestive health including a reduction in the risk and occurrence of many intestinal ailments. A few examples of insoluble fiber are:

  • Green Vegetables
  • Whole-Wheat
  • Seeds

Many grains, vegetables, and fruits have both insoluble and soluble fiber, but the percentage of each type of fiber will vary in many foods.
