Nutritional Value

Dietary fiber has been called a nonnutritive bulking agent. This is not an accurate description because dietary fiber does indeed contribute energy to the body. In cases where the fiber undergoes fermentation by the intestinal microflora, the SCFAs that are formed and absorbed into the blood contribute kilocalories to the body. Not all fibers are degraded by bacteria, so an average caloric value of 2 kcal/g fiber has been suggested by the British Nutrition Foundation Task Force. Actual values for different fiber sources range from 0 to 4 kcal/g.

other fibers are used in industry to improve food quality and produce new products.
