Get to know more about this essential nutrient. 

  • Look for grain products (e.g., bread, flour) with the word “whole” or “whole grain” in the name. Fiber is found in the “bran”, or outer layer of the grain. If the bran is removed during  processing (as it is almost entirely in all-purpose flour and “enriched” products), practically all the fiber goes with it. 

  • When baking, you can replace up to ¼ cup of each cup of all-purpose flour with wheat germ to add 4 good-for-you grams of insoluble fiber. 

  • After greasing muffin tins and loaf pans, dust them with wheat germ instead of flour to prevent sticking.

  • Of all cold cereals, wheat-bran varieties contain the most dietary fiber: bran flakes (including raisin bran) have about 5 grams per ounce; bran buds (such as All-Bran) contains 10 grams per ounce. 

  • Fiber-rich foods are generally unprocessed, which means they retain lots of vitamins and complex carbohydrates.
