No, they’re not all the same – and even wholemeal loaves vary in their fibre content. Use our guide to help meet your daily target

Are you hitting the recommended quota of 30g fibre a day? If so, you’re unusual – most people in the UK are only getting 18g. You need both types: soluble and insoluble.

Soluble fibre is found in fruit, vegetables, oats and pulses. It helps to slow down the rate at which carbohydrate is absorbed by the body and can help to lower cholesterol.

Insoluble fibre is generally found in bread, pasta, rice and vegetables. It helps to keep food moving through the gut, helping to prevent constipation, and is vital for a healthy digestive tract. But not all bread provides the same amount, which is why it pays to check labels.
