LONDON — More people could learn about the fiber benefits of bread judging by a survey on digestive health from the London-based consultancy New Nutrition Business. While 24% said they believed bread was good for digestive wellness, another 39% said they believed it was bad for digestion.

The survey involved 3,000 people from the United Kingdom, Australia, Spain, Brazil and the United States. Bread still fared well when compared to other items known for digestive health.
