Fibre Matters: Online Training Course
On average, fibre intake across all ages is low despite the strong evidence of the health benefits of fibre. That’s why Tate & Lyle has supported the British Nutrition Foundation in the development of new resources designed to help food, nutrition, science and health professionals better understand the important role of fibre in our diet.
The course aims to:
- Explain the science behind the different types of dietary fibre
- Describe current intakes of fibre and the different foods that provide fibre in the diet
- Describe the health benefits of a fibre-rich diet
- Understand the regulatory context for the communication of health benefits of fibre
The course has been developed by nutrition scientists at the British Nutrition Foundation to help provide an understanding of the importance of fibre in the diet.
