Wheat bran is an important source of fibre to ensure proper gastro-intestinal function and regular bowel movement.
Wheat bran has low nutritional value and a high fibre content. It is particularly rich in fibre and promotes a higher sense of satiety without nourishing. People who require better bowel movement or wish to appease stress eating can use it as an effective food supplement in their daily diet. Added to bread, pizza and leavened pastry doughs (especially in combination with living sour dough) it contributes to reducing the glycemic index of the finished product. Moreover, as a result of the proving process and subsequent baking of the doughs, it drastically loses phytates that inhibit the metabolization of minerals such as calcium and zinc.
