Although these two categories of fiber would be listed separately, the Total Fiber recommendation would reflect the sum of the two. The rationale for summing the two is that naturally occurring Dietary Fiber has known, although difficult to delineate, health benefits, and substances presented as Added Fiber could not be included on the label without a demonstrated beneficial physiological effect. Thus, Added Fiber should contribute to human health just as Dietary Fiber does and should count toward the total recommended level of intake.
