In the quest for a healthier lifestyle, one crucial element often overlooked is fibre. Found abundantly in fruits, vegetables, and wholegrains like bread, fibre plays a pivotal role in our well-being. Let's delve into why fibre is so important and how something as simple as bread can be a tasty vehicle for this essential nutrient.

Why Fibre Matters

Different types of fibres offer a myriad of benefits for our bodies. From promoting healthy digestion and regulating bowel movements to lowering cholesterol levels fibre is a true powerhouse nutrient.

Fibre and Bread

Now, let's talk about bread – a staple in many diets worldwide. While some may view bread as merely a source of carbs, it can actually be an excellent way to incorporate fibre into your daily diet. Opting for wholegrain or wholemeal bread varieties ensures you're getting fibre into your diet. Wholegrain bread contains the entire grain kernel, including the bran and germ, where most of the fibre is found.

Our tasty Hovis® Wholemeal is a much-loved family favourite. Naturally rich in wholegrains and made with 100% wholemeal flour, this tasty loaf is high in fibre. And with over 130 years of baking experience, our expert bakers give you a taste of Hovis® heritage in every slice.

Whether you prefer a classic sandwich, toast for breakfast, or a slice with soup, bread offers endless possibilities for incorporating fibre into your meals. Get creative with your toppings – pile on the veggies, lean proteins, and healthy fats (i.e oily fish such as mackerel) to create a delicious and fibre-packed meal.

Fibre is an indispensable nutrient for helping to achieve overall health and well-being. So, next time you reach for a slice of bread, remember the power of fibre – your body will thank you for it!
