Abstract

In my last column, I discussed various aspects of fiber . It is a topic of growing interest in the United States, because we are feeding diets with higher levels of fiber than was previously the case. We are also starting to learn that fiber is not an inert component of the diet, but it affects not only digestion but various aspects of gut function, physiology, structure and health.
