Prebiotic fibers are complex carbohydrates, resistant starches that are not digested by the stomach or small intestine, but fermented in the colon and digested by the bacteria that lives or resides in the colon. These bacteria's are responsible for creating short chain fatty acids used as energy by the body. The best way to support these bacteria is by having a balanced diet that includes 1/2 plate of vegetables, 1/4 plate of fruits and 1/4 protein plate (animal or complete plant).
