In previous publications we have mentioned some differences between soluble and insoluble fiber. Both are necessary for the diet and to maintain a healthy body. This time we will tell you a little about some foods that contain a high percentage of insoluble fiber

Its main effect on the body is to facilitate the intestinal transit, so it helps greatly to improve evacuation and have an adequate intestinal function.

Among the most mentioned of this group of foods we have

Wheat bran

Wheat bran is obtained from milling the cereal grains. It is the outer layer that covers the wheat grain and contains most of the insoluble fiber. It is also considered one of the most concentrated sources of cereal fiber. It not only has a high content of fiber, but also contains proteins, starch, vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B6, folic acid, vitamin E), minerals (iron, magnesium, zinc, calcium) and antioxidants (polyphenols).



Green leafy vegetables contain a large amount of insoluble fiber, which helps make the rest of the food go away faster; that is, it helps speed up the intestinal transit. One of them is the broccoli, that alone a cup of boiled broccoli would contribute about five grams of insoluble fiber, while raw, hardly more than two grams. In this group is also present the potato


Whole grains

All whole grains contain both soluble and insoluble fiber, but there is still a higher percentage of insoluble fiber. In this group is present the brown rice and different cereals.
