Fiber, Literally

Last night I picked up a loaf of bread without paying much attention to its packaging. The bakery was out of the whole grains variety I'd been wanting, and so I settled on the next best alternative. This morning, as I sleepily assembled my breakfast, I got quite a chuckle upon closer examination of the bread's cellophane wrapping. Can you imagine why?

(Since you probably can't read the fine print in the above photo, I'll include the verbiage -word for word- below.) 
Dietary fiber (fibre), sometimes called roughage, is the indigestible portion of plant foods that pushes food through the digestive system, absorbing water and easing defecation.
