Dietitian's Top Pick: High Fiber Minestrone Soup


Dietary fiber has been associated with decreased cardiovascular disease risk. There are two types of fiber: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber can actually help reduce LDL (bad cholesterol). Insoluble fiber has been associated with slowing the progression of cardiovascular disease in high risk individuals.
 
Good sources of soluble fiber include: oatmeal, beans, peas, rice bran, barely, & fruit
 
Good sources of insoluble fiber include: whole-wheat breads, cereals, bran, rye, rice, barely, carrots, turnips, cauliflower, & apple skin
 
It is no wonder why our Dietitians picked Progresso High Fiber Homestyle Minestrone Soup as a TOP PICK! With 7g of fiber per serving, this soup is a fantastic source of dietary fiber. Having peas and 2 different types of beans, this soup is a good source of soluble fiber and can help protect your heart by lowering your bad cholesterol. It is also an excellent source of insoluble fiber since it contains wheat pasta, carrots, and other veggies!
