If increasing nutrients in your diet is your goal, Publix can help. We've made it easier than ever to identify foods that have more of the nutrients you need, like fiber, and less of the things you don’t need, like saturated fat, or added sodium, or added sugar. Just look for the green Better Choice tags throughout the store that identify which products in a particular category, like waffles, offer higher-fiber options for you.
Fiber is an essential nutrient. Dietary fiber that occurs naturally in foods helps with digestion and regular bowel movements, and may play a role in disease prevention. Many foods with fiber, such as fruits and vegetables, also contain essential vitamins and minerals. Unfortunately, most Americans fall far short of the recommended daily amount of 28 grams (based on a 2,000-calorie diet), getting an average of only about 15 grams per day. Explore the health articles below to find out how to increase your fiber intake.
Do you pore over labels trying to decide which products best suit your nutrition goals? The experts at Publix have made it easier for you. Using the latest scientific research, including the USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans, Publix registered dietitian nutritionists have compared groups of similar products, like cereal, for example. Those items with a Better Choice tag have more of the nutrients you need, like fiber, and less of the things you don't need, like saturated fat, or added sodium, or added sugar. It's all at a glance, just for you.
