Kellogg’s™ WIC Resources


Dear Subscriber,

Welcome to the April issue of the Know Newsletter™! It features fresh research about fiber and healthcare cost savings, and new plant-based foods and resources for Earth Day.

Research: More Good News about Fiber and
Healthcare Cost Savings

We recently told you about a 2014 economic modeling analysis, which estimated that increasing dietary fiber consumption may help save billions in annual direct US healthcare costs related to occasional constipation.1

Now, these findings are supported by a new European economic analysis in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Spain.2 The analysis used a base case that assumed the following changes in the adult population’s daily fiber intake: 25%: No change, 25%: +3 g/day, 15% +4 g/day, 25%: +5 g/day, and 10%: +11 g/day.

Results for the base case showed estimated annual cost savings of £127,037,383 ($193,452,527) in the United Kingdom, €8,791,992 ($9,696,688) in Ireland, and €121,699,804 ($134,222,714) in Spain.3 The largest increase in cost savings corresponds to a scenario in which every adult increased daily fiber intake by 11 g/day.
