FAQ: But whole grains contain fiber–shouldn’t I eat more of them?

A: Whole grains contain very small amounts of prebiotic fiber. The fiber content of grains is mainly insoluble fiber, and where your microbiome is concerned, all fiber is not created equal. Insoluble fiber is not prebiotic and is unable to be metabolized by gut bacteria (it’s basically sawdust). Grains also provide a large amount of starch, which is essentially pure glucose. Given the low amount of prebiotic fiber and the high amount of glucose, whole grains are probably not the best way of attaining your daily dose of fiber.
