* Although fibre is definitely very important, laboratory technicians have not yet been able to define the exact total content in many foods in this fibre foods list, especially in vegetables and fruits, because of its complexity.
As a consequence, estimates vary from one source to another. Where differing estimates have been found, an approximation is given in the fibre foods list, as indicated by an asterisk.
The same symbol following calorie content means the number of calories has been estimated, varying according to other added ingredients, especially fats and sugars, and to the size of the average fruit or vegetable unit.

Hope this fibre foods list is helpful

    Please can you add if these foods are insoluble or soluble fibre?
    I am struggling to find a complete list of insoluble and soluble fibre foods. Most websites just give a few examples of them. I want a full list because I have to now change my diet because of IBS.
