Apricots are a great source of fibre the element in our diet which most of us neglect yet which can help prevent heart disease, diabetes, weight gain and some cancers.

Three whole dried apricots contain 5gms of fibre which is around 20 per cent of your daily fibre requirement. Usefully the apricot fibre is shared half and half between the soluble and insoluble types.

As well as aiding the digestive system, insoluble fibre is linked with reducing bowel cancer risk. Soluble fibre combines with cholesterol, prevents it being absorbed and carries it out of the body.
