PT. HES Indomakmur Gemilang – Fiber. Food fiber, also known as dietary fiber or dietary fiber, is a part of plants that can be consumed and composed of carbohydrates which have resistance to digestion and absorption in the human small intestine and experience partial or total fermentation in the large intestine. Food fibers include polysaccharides, oligosaccharides, lignin, and other substances related to plants. Trowell et al. (1985) defines dietary fiber as residues from plant cell walls that are not hydrolyzed or digested by human digestive enzymes which include hemicellulose, cellulose, lignin, oligosaccharides, pectin, gum, and wax layers. Whereas Meyer (2004) defines fiber as an integral part of food consumed daily with the main source of plants, vegetables, cereals, fruits, nuts, etc. Based on the solubility of food fiber is divided into two, namely food fibers that are dissolved and not dissolved. Dissolved food fibers include pectin, beta glucan, galactomannan, gum, and some undigested oligosaccharides including inulin, while insoluble fibers include lignin, cellulose, and hemicellulose.
Bennefits Pf Fiber For Food, Increase the volume of food without increasing calorie content and causing satiety. Reducing appetite It absorbs water and forms a thick gel during the digestive process, slows down emptying of the stomach and time of digestion, protects carbohydrates from digestive enzymes, and slows glucose absorption Stabilizes blood sugar levels Reduce total cholesterol levels and LDL levels Reduce the risk of heart and blood vessel disease Regulating blood sugar Reduces glucose and insulin levels for diabetic patients and reduces the risk of developing diabetes, Streamlining the course of food in the digestive system Helps defecate regularly, Increases stool size mass, Can prevent or cure constipation, Balances digestion pH and stimulates digestive fermentation to produce simpler fatty acids, Reduces risk of developing colon cancer
