Apple fibre consists of approximately 45% dietary fibre, 31% of which is insoluble and 14% soluble. It has also been shown to improve blood cholesterol and normalize glucose response after eating.
Carob fibre has been shown to decrease blood triglycerides and cholesterol and to increase energy expenditure.
Inulins are categorized as soluble dietary fiber, and are often used as a replacement of fat, sugar and flour in foods as they contain fewer calories than typical carbohydrates, but add a slightly sweet taste and a good texture. Inulin consumption has also been shown to decrease blood glucose, insulin, triacylglycerol and cholesterol.
