Did you know that Kfibre is different from other fibre supplements? Most fibres are heat treated and extracted to isolate the fibre part of the plant. Kfibre is different. Its what’s called a complex prebiotic fibre supplement? This means that it has not been heat treated or refined in any way and retains ALL of the health benefits that are found naturally in the plant including polyphenols and antioxidants.

Being 100% natural virgin sugarcane (with 95% of the sucrose removed) Kfibre has a nutrient and fibre profile that is more similar to the natural plant. After all our bodies are designed to process plants, not pills. This means it’s not just the prebiotics in it that have health benefits, its all of the other natural plant compounds that also contribute to your health and well-being as well.
