This is a real health shop in a wrapper.
Not only pure natural ingredients, but also full of fibre (8 weet-bix per bar) from; fruit, Fibre Sweet, and Psyllium Husk.
It's packed with essential fatty acids from linseed and soy; and brain food from Lecithin.
What's more it's low
glycemic index, so it is suitable for diabetics.
And if you have allergies to gluten and dairy products, this is for you, as it is totally free of both.
It is also a great immune booster, as the Fibre Sweet acts as a prebiotic* (good bug feed).

One bar gives an adult half of their daily fibre
requirements. Research links low fibre diets to increased risk of degenerative disease like heart
disease, diabetes and cancer.
Soy flour and protein in the Fibre Fruit provide
Oligo saccharides (FOS) added to the Fibre Fruit to
add fibre to your diet and make your bowel a friendly place for good bacteria to grow. A
healthy bowel is essential for good digestion, immune system function, and detoxification.
All the above points are important in maintaining
health. Research shows diets high in fibre, low in bad "fats" and sugar lead to less risk of heart disease,
cancer and diabetes - the biggest health issues in our Western culture. You are what you eat!! Fibre Fruits
are a step toward positive health-giving eating habits. *Prebiotic

Feeds the good bacteria (bugs) - oligosaccharides (Fibre Sweet) are recognised as the best known prebiotic foods commonly available. The term has only been around for about 10 years when the oligosaccharide range was discovered to be really effective as a food for the good bugs and only the good bugs. This is the criteria for calling it a prebiotic.This is not the case with other sugar alcohols like Malitol and Sorbitol (used in making sugar-free chocolates) which feed both the good and the bad bugs. The oligosaccharides only feed the good gut flora and in particular they boost the levels of
bifidus, lactobacillus and acidophilus.
