Food rich in prebiotic fiber

The importance of keeping a healthy digestive system is now part of our lives, since this plays an important role in our overall health.

Our gut microbiota requires its own food to perform at its best, this type of food it’s called prebiotic fiber, which is an undigestible fiber. These non-digestible carbohydrates feed the good bacteria in your gut, which have been linked to digestive health, improved immunity, anti-inflammatory effects, and more.

Prebiotics naturally exist in many foods you may already consume on a regular basis, just to name a few we find them in: bananas, garlic, agave, asparagus, cabbage, chickpeas, lentils, oats, onions, apples, pistachios and the list goes on.

As with most foods, the composition of prebiotic fiber foods changes when they are cooked. Heating anything changes its composition, thus altering its natural occurring state. In the case of prebiotics, if you cook them, you lose some of that precious prebiotic fiber.

It’s not known exactly how much prebiotic fiber is lost when these foods are cooked, but it’s safe to assume the less they are heated, the more they will retain that healthy prebiotic fiber.

Because prebiotics help probiotics flourish, eating more of them is a smart wellness strategy. For those that are wanting some assistance to reach the prebiotic quota we suggest trying agave inulin powder, a natural prebiotic fiber in powder form.
