A high source of dietary fibre
Dietary fibre is essential to a healthy digestive system and helps increase the satiating effect of food consumed. In addition, dietary fibre helps regulate blood sugar. Therefore, it is better to choose naturally sweet foods that contain fibre over sources of concentrated sugars like table sugar, honey, or maple syrup, which all completely lack dietary fibre.
Rich in antioxidants
Antioxidants play an important role in our bodies by combatting the production of free radicals, molecules that, among other things, damage our cells. Our bodies naturally produce a certain amount of antioxidants to maintain a balance, but consuming foods rich in antioxidants reinforces this protection.
