I'm taking an interest lately in Lao cuisine (I'm in the country). But I haven't noticed where they get their fibre from.

Which traditional dishes or ingredients should I investigate?

  • What do you mean by "fibre" in this context?

  • Dietary fibre, that keeps you regular (-: I tried to avoid anything that made it sound like a health and nutrition question and keep it to a factual question. Sep 17 '13 at 7:29
  • As in non-digestible polysaccharides?

    Reading the lao cuisine wiki article, they seem to be a fairly typical Asian cuisine with a lot of vegetables. I suspect that is your answer: the cellulose in the cell walls of most vegetables is not digestible.
