Staying Healthy

Since we are on the topic of being healthy in my last post, something that has come to my attention is dietary fibre.  Apparently dietary fiber is the lastest craze.

What does it do? It is supposed to be a food additive used as an eulsifier and thickener. Water soluble glucomannan is one such. Products containing glucomannan, marketed under a variety of brand names, are also sold as nutritional supplements for constipation, obesity, high cholesterol, acne vulgaris and, I gather, even type 2 diabetes!

Sounds pretty powerful doesn’t it. Well, right now we don’t need it, but it’s pretty handy to keep in mind!
