The FDA suggests a Daily Value of 25g of fiber a day. (This is based on a 2,000 calorie diet – your own specific Daily Value may vary based on how many calories you need to eat.) The FDA defines a high-fiber food as something providing 20% or more of the daily value of fiber per serving. A food with 5% or less of your daily value of fiber is considered a low-fiber food. The goal is to get to 100% of your recommended Daily Value.
