Course details

This course is for pharmacists and aims to explain the science behind the different types of dietary fibre, current UK intakes of fibre and the different foods that provide fibre in the diet. It also describes the health benefits of a fibre-rich diet and the practical ways that individuals can increase their fibre intake, including case studies.

The course covers:

  • Module 1 – The science of dietary fibre
  • Module 2 – Fibre in the UK diet
  • Module 3 – Gut health

Each module has an end test, providing you with feedback on your progress. Further reading is also suggested.

On successful completion of a final assessment, a personalised BNF certificate is created. (The final assessment may be repeated.)

This course will take approximately 1-2 hours to complete. You can complete the course at your own pace – there is no time limit.
