What is the difference between soluble and insoluble fiber?
Insoluble fiber creates the bulk in your stool. Good sources of insoluble fiber are grains, nuts, seeds and the skins of fruits. Soluble fiber dissolves in water. The right soluble fiber aids digestion, feeds beneficial bacteria, moderates glucose absorption, lowers cholesterol and helps you feel less hungry (increases satiety). But be careful. Some soluble fibers may lead to additional gas, bloating and worse: loose stools and diarrhea. The fiber used in Regular Girl is a soluble, low-FODMAP fiber. It supports digestive health without causing excess gas or bloating.*
