Oats have about 10 grams of dietary fiber per 100g of fiber, this amount includes both insoluble and soluble fiber. Within the soluble fiber we found the betaglucanos, that are classified like polysaccharides different from the starch, between which are called compounds gums, celluloses and hemicelluloses, or others called pectins and mucilages.



When talking about fruits such as orange, apple and peach it is common to think of juice, but the pulp and skins represent a significant source of soluble fiber. They are rich in pectin, a component of fiber that lowers blood cholesterol levels. Plums also contain a significant percentage of pectin. 



Carrots also have a considerable percentage of soluble fiber. This food is capable of increasing the volume of fecal matter, preventing complications caused by the accumulation of excrement in the colon, such as constipation. In addition, it relieves heartburn and stomach pain. Other vegetables such as cucumbers also provide similar benefits.
