Irregularity can affect everything you do. According to data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, only one in 10 Americans gets the recommended 25-30 grams of fiber each day. Some reasons for not eating enough high-fiber foods range from the sometimes gritty, unpleasant taste to the lack of convenient ways to enjoy them.
Battle Creek, Mich.-based Kellogg Co. debuts two options to easily increase fiber intake All-Bran Fiber Drink Mix and All-Bran Fiber Bars. Each features a robust 10 grams of fiber per serving, or 40% of your DV for fiber.
Both varieties are found in the diet and nutrition aisle near the pharmacy in grocery stores nationwide. All-Bran Fiber Drink Mix is available in Pink Lemonade and Iced Tea flavors. When one 20-calorie packet is added to a 16.9-ounce or 20-ounce bottle or glass of water, it becomes a delicious, high-fiber beverage thats a refreshing alternative to the higher-calorie, gritty fiber drinks on the market today.
All-Bran Fiber Bars, made from wheat bran and whole-grain rolled oats, are available in Apple Cinnamon Streusel and Strawberry Drizzle flavors. Each bar provides three times more dietary fiber than the leading fiber supplement. And at 120-130 calories, they are a wise on-the-go snack or midday pick-me-up.
While new All-Bran Fiber Bars and Drink Mixes certainly taste great, were excited because they offer a substantial amount of fiber per serving fiber that many consumers arent getting enough of, says Jennifer Garrett, Kelloggs director of nutrition marketing.
