The Power of Dietary Fiber
Dietary fiber is a natural substance obtained from fruits, vegetables and cereals. At its most basic level, fiber is comprised of plant cell walls and associated material like cellulose and pectin.
The health benefits of fiber have long been widely acknowledged. Foremost is fiber’s ability to add bulk to our diet. Bulk promotes the passage of food through the intestine and can prevent, as well as alleviate constipation.
Fiber can be extraordinarily beneficial as part of a weight loss regiment. As fiber passes through the digestive system, it absorbs water and swells like a sponge. Such a filling food decreases appetite, causing us to eat less. As the calories locked in the fiber cannot be released by human digestion, weight loss is enhanced.
The Breakdown on Bran
Pure bran contains the highest percentage of dietary fiber. As most bran is removed from the cereal and bread products that we typically eat, alternate sources of bran need to be found if we wish to add this healthful and slimming component to our diet.
Garner the Benefits of GG; The Best Bran Source
From the slow-baking European ovens of Norway comes the highest bran-content product available. Prepared from 85% unprocessed bran, with rye flour and water added, the batter is slowly baked over a twelve-hour period. The moisture is evaporated, leaving a crisp, flavorful, thick cracker containing 85% bran. This special baking method maximizes the surface area of the fiber in the bran. So when you eat GG Scandinavian Bran Crispbread, it quickly absorbs more moisture and satisfies your appetite more completely than any other bran product, especially those that are available from domestic, mass-produced ovens.
GG is the high Fiber Champion. Period.
If you eat just 4 slices of GG each day, you will receive a whopping 80% of recommended intake of dietary fiber. Take a look at what else you would need to eat to get so much fiber:
3 medium sized yams (6 oz)
5 cups of raw, uncooked broccoli
7 bananas (8" each)
4 cups of bran flakes
