I am super confused by this. I recently bought some oat bran tablets and they turn out to have very little dietary fiber in them.
The tablets are 850 mg each, and they are definitely mostly bran (not just compressed oatmeal). I’d have thought I was taking at least .7 grams of fiber per pill but the label says the dietary fiber is <1 gram for three tablets. So that’s less than .3 grams per .85 gram tablet.
I just find this soooo surprising. I always thought of bran as being 95% fiber!
Were my expectations off, or is something else going on here? What exactly is bran made of?!?
