2. Apples

Apples are rich in fibre. One medium-sized apple with the skin on (about 182 grams) contains 4.4 grams of fibre, which is 17% of the recommended daily intake (7).

Approximately 2.8 grams of that fibre is insoluble, while 1.2 grams is soluble fibre, mostly in the form of the dietary fibre called pectin (8).

In the gut, pectin is rapidly fermented by bacteria to form short-chain fatty acids, which pull water into the colon, softening the stool and decreasing gut transit time (9, 10).
