Until recently, fibre info on food packaging was a bit patchy as food manufacturers aren’t required to show it, but we’re happy that the coverage is now good enough to make tracking it useful for you.
Fibre’s been in the news a lot this year – you may have read about its many health benefits, including helping with weight loss. The target is 30g a day – but do you know how much you’re getting?
The average woman in the UK is managing around 17g a day, and men 20g. Now’s your chance to find out how you measure up!
To start tracking fibre, make sure you’ve got the latest version of the Nutracheck App. Go to your diary, tap the nutrient at the top of the second column and select ‘FIBRE’ from the drop down.
A popular question I get asked is ‘What should I eat to get more fibre in my diet? Well we have loads of helpful blogs, food swaps and recipes ideas – just check out the links below.
