Summary:

Dietary fiber is an important digestive aide, and has been a topic of interest for many years, especially in relation to its cardioprotective and cholesterol-lowering effects. On average, Americans consume less than half the recommended intake of dietary fiber. Sustaining an adequate daily fiber intake is demonstrated to provide numerous health benefits. Understanding the different types of fiber, sources, health claims allowed on food labels, and how to increase dietary fiber are crucial to ensure the health of the public.

Objectives:

The goal of this dietary fiber and cholesterol reduction continuing education program is to inform and update dietitians, dietary managers, school nutritionists, fitness professionals and health educators on the role dietary fiber plays in cholesterol reduction and the prevention of heart disease. After you study the information here, you will be able to:
  • Explain three ways in which dietary fiber may protect against coronary heart disease
  • Describe the predominant way that viscous fibers are thought to lower serum cholesterol
  • List the Adequate Intake levels for dietary fiber for adult men and women
