Nutritional therapist Hannah Braye said: “Fibre is an integral part of humans.
“New recommendations are that we should be consuming around 30g of fibre a day, which many people are falling far short of.
“Ideally we should be obtaining fibre from a variety of plants such as fruit, vegetables, whole grains, lentils, beans, pulses, nuts and seeds.
“However, hectic modern lifestyles often mean that people rely heavily on processed convenience foods, which are often low in nutrients, including fibre.”
