Fiber is a type of carbohydrate that is not digestible (e.g., it will pass through the digestive system without being absorbed). The NCEP ATPIII guidelines recommend that soluble (viscous) fiber be included in the diet for the prevention and treatment of elevated blood lipid concentrations. Sources of soluble (viscous) fibers include
- Fruits, beans, and oats.
- Meat and dairy foods.
- Wheat bran and whole wheat products.
- All of the above.
