BATTLE CREEK, Mich., Aug. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Despite recommendations from nutrition and health experts, most Americans still struggle to get enough fiber in their diet. In fact, the average American would have to double his/her fiber intake to meet current recommendations, which can be a daunting task. But a new
Nutrition Today, published by Wolters Kluwer Health – LWW, shows how small step changes in the diet can help people reach their fiber goals while also keeping calories under control.
The final installment in a three-part series on the fiber deficit in America, this article demonstrates how replacing every day foods with higher-fiber options can lead to big improvements in fiber consumption. "Choosing higher fiber varieties of fruits, vegetables and whole grains can help move the fiber needle, but so can foods with fiber added," said
DeAnn Liska, PhD, Kellogg Company's senior director of U.S. nutrition science, and a co-author on the study. "Most Americans fall short of the recommendations for fruits and vegetables and not all whole grains are high in fiber, so to meet their fiber needs they must consider higher-fiber varieties of other common foods in the diet."
