Feeling fabulous through fibre! The health benefits of Dried Fruit
Fibre has the potential to be the next big thing! This podcast covers the important role fibre can play in our overall health, and how California Prunes can help our gut health. We explore how much fibre we need, why we don’t get enough, and the impact on society.
We examine how plant-based diets could help our gut health and immune system, review how dried fruits can help us get more fibre – and can also help add much-needed value to businesses. Joining host Stefan Gates for this fascinating and insightful look at dried fruit and fibre are Jennette Higgs, Registered Dietitian, Food to Fit and Kevin Verbruggen, European Marketing Director, the California Prune Board.
