However, people who experience gluten intolerance should not consume any products, including Benefiber®, that contain any level of gluten unless otherwise directed by their doctor.

    Benefiber® is a prebiotic fiber. What does that mean?

    Benefiber® is a prebiotic fiber that nourishes the good microflora inside your digestive system.

    Trillions of microflora, or bacteria, live inside of your digestive system. These microflora help support your digestive health.

    How much fiber do I need every day?

    The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends that American adults get a daily fiber intake of 21 - 38 grams from plant foods, including both soluble and insoluble fiber.1 However, most Americans get only half this amount! Adding Benefiber® to a healthy diet can help you make sure you get adequate fiber and promotes good digestive health.
