Getting enough fiber each day can do some amazing things for your body. You might not know it, but dietary fiber can help:
Fiber is the part of plant-based foods that your body doesn’t digest. There are two types of fiber that offer different benefits to your body.
That slice of brown bread looks like it’s made with whole wheat. And that bowl of cereal loaded with nuggets and little twigs? It’s got to be high in fiber, right? Not necessarily.
Some breads and pastas are brown because of the addition of molasses or food coloring. And some white breads are made with whole grains from a special kind of albino flour, so they don’t look (or taste) high in fiber, but they are. Some cereals with the word “wheat” in the name offer as little as 0.6 gram of fiber per serving, while another box on the same shelf packs five times as much. Here’s how to know you’re making smart fiber choices.
You can start adding some fiber to the things you love. It’s easy and convenient with SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, 1 Gram of Fiber. You’ll enjoy the same sweet taste and it contains one gram of soluble fiber per packet.
SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, 1 Gram of Fiber, Packets are great for sweetening beverages and sprinkling on cereal, fresh fruit, and more. Each packet sweetens just like two teaspoons of sugar.
