What is Apple Fibre?
Apple Fibre by HSNfoods is a product powder that has been exclusively made from the dietary fibre that is naturally present in apples.
Apple Fibre is one of the best ways to benefit from the positive effects on fiber on our organism. It provides both soluble and insoluble fibres with different degrees of polymerization, taking advantage of all its mechanisms.
Our Apple Fibre has been obtained through an extraction process that is environmentally-friendly, without genetically modified organisms that may negatively affect the environment. Moreover, it does not contain food additives, ingredients from animals or other compounds.
Why take it?
Because thanks to its nutritional properties, Apple Fibre is a great product that increases the stool and improves the intestinal transit and health.
Composition of apple fibre
Even though dietary fibre is and standard concept with a series of properties, they will actually depend on the particular features of each saccharide that makes up a specific type of fibre.
Therefore, apple fibre is not going to be the same as wheat or oat fibre.
Apple fibre is a great way of providing different types of dietary fibre so that we will benefit of the positive effects of each one. Its composition is approximately made up of:
- 1% galacturonic acid.
- 19% Hemicellulose.
- 4% Hemicellulose.
- 9% Pectin.
- 40% Cellulose.
- 15% Lignin.
(Hai-Tao et al., 1988)
Each type of fibre has specific physicochemical properties. That is why a product like Apple Fibre has different and varied types of fibre.
Positive effects of apple fibre
Effects of insoluble fibre
Insoluble fibre has unique physical properties that increase the stool and improve the intestinal transit in order to have regular and healthy bowel movements.
Effects of soluble fibre
Soluble fibre has extraordinarily complex chemical properties and they cannot be broken down by the enzymes from the small bowel.
These fibres continue to travel to the colon, where the bacteria from that area produce short chain fatty acids (SCFA's) which has potential prebiotics that preserve the bacterial diversity in the small intestine. Moreover, they support the gastrointestinal health, reducing the malabsorption levels, gases, swelling, etc (Koutsos et al., 2015).
Both types of fibre have been associated with a slower gastric emptying, which:
- Produces a feeling of satiety.
- Lowers the blood cholesterol.
- Improves the glucose control in people with diabetes.

The apple fibre that we have used in HSN has been obtained from GMO-free raw ingredients.
Genetic engineering can have a serious impact on the environmental development of the native species and we strongly reject those practices in HSN.
Our product is vegan and it has been exclusively made from natural apple fibre. It has been obtained from GMO-free apples.
How to take it?
You can take as much as you need to meet your nutrient requirements.
We suggest taking one scoop a day, although you can always adjust that amount.
Mix a scoop (5 grams) in 250ml of water, milk or juice approximately and drink it with the meals. It has a neutral flavour, perhaps slightly sweet but it does not alter the taste of food.
