Many people don’t eat enough fibre and this is concerning as inadequate fibre intake is associated with irregularity and digestive discomfort, affecting general wellbeing.
This study investigated the improvements in digestive function, symptoms and general wellbeing found after eating All-Bran® (wheat bran-rich breakfast cereal). In the study, participants ate a bowl of breakfast cereal containing at least 5g of fibre (3.5g from wheat bran) for 14 consecutive days and completed a daily symptoms diary.
Further improvements were seen with increasing cereal/fibre consumption. However, consuming an additional minimum 5.4 g of fibre (3.5 g wheat bran) per day was shown to deliver measurable and significant benefits for digestive health, comfort and wellbeing. Regular consumption of a higher-fibre cereal is a great way to increase fibre intake in the diet.
