What Is a High Fiber Food?
Plant foods, in general, are rich in fiber. An amount of fiber and soluble/insoluble fiber varies from food to food. A commercial food product can be labeled as ‘High Fiber’, if it contains at least 5 g of fiber per serving.
‘Dietary Fiber’ on the Nutritional Facts Label refers to fiber originally present in the food. Total dietary fiber is a sum of soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. ‘Total Fiber’ consists of dietary fiber and added fiber. Added fiber does not necessary have good fiber-like properties, though.
