'Virtual issue' on dietary fibre and health

The June 2009 issue of Nutrition Bulletin was also accompanied by the first 'virtual' issue  of the journal on dietary fibre and health.

Dietary fibre is currently a hot topic in nutrition. Fibre is a complex entity, consisting of many non-digestible components of food which may have different effects on health. Whilst some health benefits of a high fibre diet are well established, new roles are also emerging for some of the components of dietary fibre. There has also been ongoing debate surrounding its definition and measurement. The first 'virtual issue' of Nutrition Bulletin on dietary fibre and health is therefore a timely publication and brings together a number of reviews in this area, together with an editorial entitled ‘Dietary fibre: an evolving definition?’.

The 'virtual issue' is available free and can be accessed from the journal website, click here.
