Dietary fiber, also known as roughage or bulk, includes the parts of plant foods that human body cannot digest or absorb. Unlike other food components, such as fats, proteins, or carbohydrates, which the body breaks down and absorbs, fiber is not digested by the body. Instead, it passes relatively intact through the stomach, small intestine, colon, and out of the body. Fiber is commonly classified as soluble, which dissolves in water, and insoluble, which does not dissolve. The amount of soluble and insoluble fiber varies in different plant foods. To receive the greatest health benefit, people are advised to consume a wide variety of high-fiber plant foods. The key benefits gained by the consumption of high-fiber diet include normalizing of the bowel movements, maintaining better bowel health, lowering of cholesterol levels, and achieving healthier weight.
COVID-19 scenario analysis
Pharmaceutical and biotechnological companies got involved with governments globally such that they started working to combat with the COVID-19 outbreak.

There are about 115 vaccine candidates and other 155 molecules that are kept in the R&D pipeline. Moreover, commonly used drugs such as hydroxychloroquine have seen higher rise in demand for the management of COVID-19. Increase in demand for drugs is expected to offer remunerative opportunity for manufacturers of COVID-19 management drugs, as many developed countries are short of these drugs. Owing to the demand for vaccine and treatment drugs for COVID-19, the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry is anticipated to witness a substantial growth in the next few years. The growth in the awareness regarding the need to maintain a healthy diet will propel the growth of the industry in the current scenario.
