Dietary fiber consists of non-digestible carbohydrate and lignin that are intrinsic and intact in plants as defined by the Institute of Medicine. The current evidence base highlights the importance of dietary fiber in order to reduce the risk of adverse health outcomes such as some cancers, cardiovascular diseases, obesity and type 2 diabetes. However, findings on the role of dietary fiber in human health and disease are scattered and unclear. The current Special Issue aims to bring together recent reviews and cutting-edge original papers in the field to address current gaps in the evidence base on the role of dietary fiber in human health.Assist.
