Why do we need fibre?

Fibre are only found in food that originates  from plants. Fibre is the ingredient of plant food that our body do not break down during digestion. Because fibre is not digested, it does not provide us calories. Since we do not digest it, the fibre in food passes into the intestine and absorbs water. Fibre is an important part of a healthy diet. A diet rich in fibre has many health benefits. The main role of fibre is to keep the digestive system healthy. Fibre has also been proved to benefit diabetes, blood cholesterol level and weight control.

 Why do we need carbohydrates?

Carbohydrates are compounds that your body uses to produce energy. Carbohydrates are your body’s main source of energy. When you take in any type of carbohydrate, your digestive system will break it down into simple sugar like glucose. Glucose is then circulated in your blood to get every cell of your body. Because carbohydrate-rich food  usually has low in calory content, it can help us keep a healthy weight.

Why do we need fats?

Fats provide essential fatty acids (that we cannot produce but need in small amounts), as well as energy. Fat is also  needed to carry and store essential fat-soluble vitamins, like vitamins A, D and has an imprortant role in absorption.
