Soluble vs. Insoluble Fiber
There are 2 different types of fiber — soluble and insoluble. Both are important for health, digestion, and preventing diseases.
- Soluble fiber attracts water and turns to gel during digestion. This slows digestion. Soluble fiber is found in oat bran, barley, nuts, seeds, beans, lentils, peas, and some fruits and vegetables. It is also found in psyllium, a common fiber supplement. Some types of soluble fiber may help lower risk of heart disease.
