What is fiber and what does it do?
Fiber is a carbohydrate that cannot be digested by the body but has numerous benefits.
Constipation Fiber acts as a laxative to prevent constipation as it speeds up the movement of food through the digestive system.
Weight Loss High fiber foods leave your body feeling full with “bulkier foods” that contain less calories and carbs so that you’re likely to eat less and stay satisfied longer.
Gut Health Fiber plays a critical role in lowering overall disease risk and battling inflammation in the gut. Researchers have found that fiber assists with keeping the intestinal wall healthy and sealed and that the gut is less likely to suffer from inflammatory conditions, such as Crohn’s disease with fiber.
Live Longer According to the Mayo Clinic, studies suggest that increasing your dietary fiber intake is associated with a reduced risk of dying from cardiovascular disease and all cancers.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends adults get between 25-38 grams of fiber in their diet every day, yet most U.S. adults don’t even get half of that amount. FG products provide between 39-80% of your daily recommended requirements in each serving.
How does FG keep the net carbs and calorie levels so low?
By replacing much of the flour in ordinary products with a high-fiber, zero-calorie resistant starch, we are adding an essential nutrient, fiber, while at the same time decreasing calories and carbs.
Insoluble fiber is the indigestible part of a carbohydrate which has zero calories since it passes straight through the digestive tract. Because only the carbohydrate portion of a food contributes to its calories, when determining calories and net carbs, the insoluble fiber is deducted from the total carbohydrates. Since FG products contain unprecedented amounts of insoluble fiber, our products boast an unparalleled amount of low calories and net carbs.
