We’ve taken the traditional apple crumble and given it a gut-healthy twist for this Fibreuary. This recipe has probiotics and loads of fibre (more than 1/3 of your daily intake).
Apples provide a good source of a prebiotic fibre called pectin, which is released from apple skins when heated. Pectin also provides something for your good gut bacteria to feast on. When our bacteria are well fed, they produce short-chain fatty acids, which our gut cells use as fuel ⛽️
