Although a cholesterol-lowering effect of dietary fiber derived from gum arabic or apples has been demonstrated, little research exists that examines the potential cholesterol-lowering effects of combinations of these fibers. The purpose of this study was to determine the combined effect of fiber derived from apple pulp and gum arabic on blood cholesterol levels in men with mild hypercholesterolemia.
