wafflesFiber is an essential nutrient. Dietary fiber that occurs naturally in foods helps with digestion and regular bowel movements, and may play a role in disease prevention. Many foods with fiber, such as fruits and vegetables, also contain essential vitamins and minerals. Unfortunately, most Americans fall far short of the recommended daily amount of 28 grams (based on a 2,000-calorie diet), getting an average of only about 15 grams per day.
