NutraFiber Flakes

Thanks to Nutrafiber for sending me their flakes to sample. NutraFiber® Flakes are a 100% natural dietary fiber made with 100% Sugar Beets, after the sugar is extracted. NutraFiber is a concentrated fiber with an optimal ratio of Soluble & Insoluble Fibers. The inclusion of Soluble Fibers as part of a balanced, healthy diet have been shown to lower LDL (bad) blood cholesterol levels and increase HDL (good) blood cholesterol levels.

NutraFiber® Flakes are 100% Sugar Beet Fiber Flakes that can be added into any meal by simply sprinkling them on. They also adapt easily for use in your favorite family recipes. I would add them to grilled veggies, oatmal and soups.

NutraFiber also has the following benefits:
NutraFiber Flakes reduce your appetite, while providing a feeling of fullness for a longer period of time. NutraFiber offers more fiber per serving than oat bran or rice bran. It is also cholesterol free and low in sodium. NutraFiber is also Gluten Free, making it a great source of fiber enrichment for those on a Celiac Diet.

One tablespoon has 13 calories, 0 grams fat, 0 grams trans fats, 7 grams carbs, 5 grams fiber, 0 grams sugar, 1 gram protein.

I added them to my "mock eggwhite french toast" (nuked egg whites, cinnamon, stevia topped with all natural sugar free maple syrup) for added fiber.
