Fiber, also known as roughage, contains many properties that aid our digestion tract, and allow us to process waste products more efficiently. According to Nutrition.gov (2013) fiber can be found in many of our favorite foods including whole grains, vegetables, and fruits. There are two types of fiber, soluble and insoluble. Soluble fibers dissolve in water, and when digested, “form viscous solutions in the intestines” (Grosvenor & Smolin, 2006). “Fibers that cannot be digested by bacteria in the large intestines are called insoluble fibers because they do not dissolve in water.” (Grosvenor & Smolin, 2006) High fiber diets can produce many benefits, including higher nutrient absorption levels, and better waste output.

Diet for Dogs with Bladder Stones Dietary therapy is useful for treating and preventing struvite stones in pets. Since the struvite stones form in urine with a high pH (alkaline urine), diets should help to maintain a low pH (acidic urine). Diets with animal-based protein sources are most important in maintaining an acidic pH, while vegetarian or cereal-based diets are more likely to cause and alkaline urine. Homemade diets are preferred for dogs with chronic bladder disorders such as bladder stones. If processed foods must be fed, most holistic veterinarians prefer canned diets, which contain large amounts of water, rather than dry foods.
The mills, powered by water wheels, were used to produce the bread the colonists ate. The mills would crush grain between heavy stones and mill it into a fine powder, which was then used to make the bread. This method was very important in the Middle Colonies because bread was the colonists’ main food source. It was also an excellent way for the colonies to make money. The Middle Colonies had very strong economic activity.
5. It is important to store different types of food and drink safely to reduce the risk of contamination and multiplication of bacteria. Food and drink should be labelled with best before dates, different types of food should be stored together such as dry foods, chilled foods, raw foods and frozen foods. 6.

Corn can be used in a variety of ways, such as livestock feed or as a wide-reaching product (like high-fructose corn syrup). In fact, corn is now the basic, fundamental ingredient to nearly all widely produced food products. With the advancement of scientific harvesting tools and efficient transportation systems, large quantities of meat, grains and other foods can be produced, packaged and sold across the United States. However, though this type of food production creates large and easily attainable food quantities, it proves to be environmentally unhealthy. Livestock fed on unnatural corn-based diets end up for unhealthier than those raised naturally.
