25 Best High-Fiber Snacks to Buy That Keep You Full

Feel fuller longer, improve digestion, and nourish your gut with these high fiber snacks.

What is fiber?

Dietary fiber is a type of indigestible carbohydrate found in plant food sources. There are two categories of fiber: soluble and insoluble.

“Soluble fiber dissolves in water and forms a gel-like consistency, and is beneficial for lowering blood cholesterol and glucose levels,” says Hillary Cecere MS, RDN, a registered dietitian for Eat Clean Bro.

“Insoluble fiber doesn’t dissolve in water and is beneficial for digestion and constipation prevention,” Cecere says.

What are the benefits of eating fiber-rich foods?

“Some of the benefits of eating high fiber snacks throughout the day are that fiber-rich foods tend to be more filling and satisfying,” says Cecere. But aside from their satiating properties, high fiber snacks also offer a ton of health benefits as well.

For example, combining high fiber snacks with a source of healthy fat and protein can help your blood sugar remain stable and ensure your energy levels remain constant, all while avoiding the energy crash common with high sugar foods, says Kristen Carli, RD.

Fiber also “plays a key role in digestive health by adding bulk to stool and promoting elimination,” adds Madeline McDonough, MS, RDN. In other words: fiber keeps your gut healthy and your trips to the bathroom, regular.

How we chose the best store-bought high-fiber snacks.

  1. Keep an eye on the DV (daily value).
  2. Keep the sugar content at a minimum.
  3. Go for whole grain.
  4. Generally take a “whole foods first” approach.
  5. Read the label.

Kia ora! Sustainability is at the core of my soul ever since I was a kid. I always strive to finish the food on my plate and live as a minimalist. I love to cut down on waste in order to live sustainably and harmoniously with our planet. This brings me to my passion as a Food Scientist to integrate new technologies into innovative and creative solutions to meet customer demands and market trends and to optimize products and processes for quality, savings and sustainability. To these goals, I have published a Journal on my work on sustainable packaging and patented a new Antimicrobial wash. Nothing is more satisfying than working hard and smart at the workplace and playing hard outside of working hours. I enjoy rejuvenating myself through spending quality time with my two adorable kids and my awesome soul mate and getting close to nature when possible, be it gardening, tramping or going to the beach. I also love to learn about our magnificent universe and how sustainability is working in the grand scheme of things. I strongly believe that Work, Life & Balance is the key to a healthy state of mind, both physically and mentally. I look forward to making a positive difference wherever and whenever I can.
