Are You Really Getting Enough Fiber?

What is exactly is dietary fiber? Dietary fiber is the indigestible carbohydrate part of plant-based foods, which is to say, it cannot be broken down by the body and passes through the intestinal tract relatively intact and out the body. Even though it simply leaves your body, fiber is an important element in keeping your digestive system running smoothly.   

Fiber can help to lower cholesterol, help you maintain a healthy weight due to its satiety and filling properties, and may even help to prevent certain types of cancer. By adding weight to your bowel movements, fiber can help make your colon work more efficiently and regularly. This in turns helps to decrease the risk of hemorrhoids or diverticulosis and may even decrease the risk of colon cancer. 

Mushrooms contain an indigestible soluble fiber called chitin that contributes “bulk” to our diet. This soluble fiber also helps to provide the bulk that makes you feel full after eating, which is great if you are looking to for a better way to feel full. Soluble fiber slows down the digestive process, which has positive impacts on diabetes and blood sugar levels. In addition to that soluble fibers lower cholesterol levels.   

Most people are not getting enough fiber in their diets. Eating foods naturally filled with fiber is recommended over taking supplements. With munchrooms’ mushroom jerky, you get 16g of fiber per packet, which equates to 58% of your total daily recommended fiber intake.
