The C.A.M. Report
Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog is intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Coffee as a source of fiber

    Coffee is a complex mixture of more than 1,000 compounds, some of which are linked to good and others to bad effects on human health.

    Among the good stuff is soluble dietary fiber, according to an article in Science Daily.

    Using a special technique for measuring dietary fiber in beverages, scientists in Spain report that drinking 1 cup (about 200 milliliters) of coffee per day contributes up to 1.8 grams of the recommended intake of 20-38 grams of fiber.

    Here is a good source of information on fiber from the Jackson Siegelbaum Gastroenterology practice in Pennsylvania.
