High Fiber Food Chart Ranking Fiber Sources

The high fiber food chart below is as easy to use as ABC. And the ABC ranking for the fiber sources provides you with simple guidelines.

By choosing more fruit, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and beans from this high fiber food chart and the list of high fiber foods, you can lower cholesterol and reduce your risk of heart disease, constipation, hemorrhoids, diverticulitis, colon cancer, high blood sugar, diabetes and obesity.

The be healthy, you need 30 to 40 grams of fiber a day. The average person only gets around 10. That's just 1/3 of the optimum. Studies show only about 5% of the population eat the recommended amount.

So let's get busy with the ABC's of high fiber foods.




The following fiber sources are specifically ranked for fiber content. The "A" category is the highest, with over 7 grams per serving. "B" is next with 3 or more. And "C" foods have less than 3 grams. For more detailed information, go to the list of high fiber foods with fiber content.
