The focus of this national initiative will shift the emphasis from reactively caring for those who are sick, to proactively preventing individuals from falling ill. The key is for the population to reshape its health-seeking behaviours and lifestyles.
As World Bread Day on 16 October acknowledges bread as one of the world’s oldest foods, consumers are reminded of the importance of this staple food in their daily lives. Health-conscious individuals are also increasingly choosing wholemeal loaves to boost their daily dietary fibre intake which contributes towards healthier eating habits and better nourishment.
It is widely acknowledged that a balanced and nutritious diet is important for overall health and well-being, especially for the elderly. As digestion slows down with age, food moves slowly through the gastrointestinal tract, which may impact their well-being. Chewing and swallowing may also become difficult for the elderly as saliva production falls or if they are experiencing dental problems.1
High in dietary fibre for gut health and to aid digestion especially for the elderly, Gardenia Nutri-Ace Sprouted Soft Grain 100% Wholemeal Loaf steps up to the plate with sprouted grains being one of the key ingredients as health-conscious consumers are increasingly focused on the importance of digestive health, especially among the elderly in terms of chewing and digestion. According to scientific research, dietary fibres benefit a healthy gut microbiome, overall metabolic health, and improved colonic health.2
