We all know that fibre helps keep your digestive system working the way it ought to. But did you know there are three different types of dietary fibre, and you need them all to stay healthy?
Different foods have varying amounts of these types of fibre. For example, our oats are specially selected for their levels of soluble fibre known as beta-glucan.
Oats contain a special type of natural soluble fibre – beta-glucan. Studies show that eating about 3g of beta-glucan a day as part of a healthy diet low in saturated fat can help lower your blood cholesterol. And UNCLE TOBYS oats are specially bred for their beta-glucan content to help you lower your cholesterol and contribute to keeping your heart healthy.
Insoluble fibre absorbs water and helps soften the bowel’s contents.
Resistant starch is not digested in the small intestine. It moves on to the large intestine, where it feeds good bacteria.
The UNCLE TOBYS name and logo has significant historical significance, it was designed by Nellie Love, the niece of Clifford Love – the founder of UNCLE TOBYS, who was a keen artist and a student of literature. She suggested the name and designed the logo based on the great literacy character in the “Life of Times of Tristram Shandy” by Laurence Sterne, first published in 1759. In the book Uncle Toby is a gentle, uncomplicated lover of his fellow man. The original design of Uncle Toby standing with the Widow Wadman has seen little changes over the years, so has become a treasured representation of the UNCLE TOBYS heritage.
