Fiber, also spelled fibre, is a class of materials that are continuous filaments or are in discrete elongated pieces, similar to lengths of thread. They are very important in the biology of both plants and animals, for holding tissues together. Human uses for fibers are diverse. ...

Cane plant’s vegetable skeleton in which juice is stored and through which plant food, dissolved in solid water, is distributed throughout the plant. Milling ruptures the fibre cells, freeing the juice. Fibre content varies according to variety but normal range is 11%-16%.
Unprocessed plant foods, such as wholegrains, vegetables and fruit, contain fibre that our bodies do not absorb. But instead of causing stomach ache, this fibre helps keep our digestive systems working properly. ...
