Food labels simplified as Fox news viewers learn about high-fiber food

food labels

Food labels can be complicated! Instead of trying to interpret a complicated list of scientific words, it might seem easier to grab something that blasts out claims of being “high fiber” or “fiber-enriched”. But as Rogue Nutritionist Dr. Jonny Bowden explained to Fox 40 Morning News viewers, labels are often misleading. He gave the Californian audience simple tips for boosting their fiber intake, including supplementing with Sunfiber.

“We’ve been told to look for good sources of fiber and we think of breads,” he explained. “Breads are not fiber heavy weights. They’ve got one to two grams per serving and a lot of calories, and a lot of wheat and stuff you don’t need.” Few people realize how processed most breads are, and that this strips away most of their fiber. Misinformation could be a reason that most Americans only eat a fraction of their daily fiber recommendation.

“Get your fiber from real fiber foods like avocados, beans,” Bowden encouraged before reaching for Sunfiber. “[Fiber] is another place where I think supplements really matter.” Finding the right supplement is crucial. Sunfiber is taste-free and odor-free, making it easy to incorporate into your diet.

“It fits into any shake,” Bowden said, or it can also be added to juice, water and yogurt, and used as an ingredient in baking because it dissolves completely. “You get six grams [of fiber] per spoonful. It has no flavor that bothers anybody. It blends right in. And we don’t really need to get breads and processed pastas for our fiber.”

This uniquely regulating fiber provides relief from both occasional diarrhea and constipation. It promotes satiety and gut health, the latter by working as a prebiotic. Its slow fermentation rate also prevents uncomfortable bloating that can cause the unwanted gas or abdominal pain associated with other types of fiber supplements.
