FIBRE89

Our FIBRE89 range was created to provide a tasty and convenient way for people to increase their daily fibre intake. Each FIBRE89 blend is a mixture of 89% inulin and a delicious combination of carefully extracted wholefoods (Green Bean Pod, Bilberry, Nettle, Mulberry Leaves, Blackberry Leaves, Fenugreek Seeds & Juniper Fruit), chosen for their nutritive value and to provide a diversity of plant-based food which supports our gut.

Caffeine-free, vegan and keto-friendly, our delicious granulated FIBRE89 range can be taken as a hot, cold or sparkling drink. Add a wedge of lemon or lime for a zesty twist, or sprinkle it into porridge, yogurts, smoothies or salads to increase your daily fibre intake! Find some simple and convenient snack ideas on our recipe page.

Inulin is a soluble fibre, extracted from the chicory root (a member of the dandelion family). It is classified as a ‘prebiotic’, which means that it acts as fuel or fertiliser for our ‘friendly’ gut bacteria, and helps to create a diverse microbiome within our gut eco-system.

CONSTIPATION & INULIN:

Constipation and inflammatory bowel issues cause a disruption in the gut ecology, and can have an impact on our overall health. Constipation can effect our energy levels, mood, quality of sleep and ability to absorb and digest nutrients from our food. Inulin is approved by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) as a soluble fibre that helps increase stool frequency, and this can help support overall gut function. In our research and development stages, gut health was a priority in any ingredient we chose and it was based on this EFSA claim that we chose inulin as our staple ingredient in the Circle of Light range.

GETTING OUR RDA OF FIBRE:

It is widely accepted that 70-80% of our immune system is connected to the gut via interlinked systems, so it is a priority to ensure that we our getting enough nutrients and fibre based foods to feed our guts well.

Meeting our RDA of fibre plays a significant part in supporting our gut function.
Fibre is vital to improving our bowel function, which can provide a knock-on effect on our sense of wellbeing: it adds bulk to our stools and it slows down the emptying of the stomach, so that we can feel sated for longer – which also helps regulate blood sugar/hormonal fluctuations.

Currently the recommended daily allowance for fibre in an adult’s diet ranges from 24-35 grams, and we can meet this by ensuring that we have a diverse range of plant-based foods in our meals. We know that this can be hard to consistently achieve, which is why we created our FIBRE89 range. One serving of our FIBRE89 blends per day will provide 1/5 of an adult’s RDA of fibre.

If you would like more information on the role fibre plays in our gut health, you can watch ‘The Fibre Series’ with independent advisor and nutrition expert, Dr Brendan Egan, here.

TIP: When we start to introduce a higher fibre intake to our diet, it is important that we also increase our water intake. This will help support bowel function and aid the relief of constipation. Fibre adds ‘bulk’ to our stool, so we recommend that you start on one serving (or a half serving) per day and slowly increase as your body adjusts to the increased fibre.
