Dear MBI
Generally speaking adults should try to consume 20g of dietary fibre per day. Fruits and vegetables are good to moderate sources provided you eat the peels and pithy parts, e.g. oranges, apples, etc. The best sources of dietary fibre are still unprocessed grains and cereals and legumes (dry beans, peas and lentils).
