What is the function of fiber in the body? What are some examples of food sources of dietary fiber? What is the difference between soluble and insoluble fiber? What are the fiber recommendations for children versus adults, according to the article? What did you learn about fiber that you were not aware of prior to reading this information? According to the author (Linda Van Horn PhD, RD, 1997) the primary function fiber plays within the human body is the way it impacts the risk for coronary heart disease (CHD). The influence that fiber has on CHD is both good and bad. Fiber can affect the rate at which saturated fat, cholesterol are absorbed in the body and can prevent obesity. Fiber can be found in various grains such as wheat, rye, and rice. These grains provide the body with the insoluble fiber. In addition to grains, other sources of fiber can be found in oats, barley, beans and peas. Fruits and vegetables can provide both soluble and insoluble fiber.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
